This post is dedicated to a few very important things going on in my life this coming week. As we travel the highway to our family and friends in Michigan/Indiana we always have lots of time to talk, sing, snack...nap...snack...did I say snack? I think I may gain anywhere from 3-5 lbs in a 15 hour span! Lucky we don't do these trips all that much...lucky for my waistline anyway!
My daughter. The soft spoken, sweet spirit who has brightened my life and is my sunshine. Happy Birthday Baby Girl! May your life be eternally happy and blessed!
On to the next event. Yes, I am going on a bit in this post, sorry. I am having withdrawals since my last post and wanted to be sure to get all my thoughts down since I was in the "talking" mood.
The next "event" of the weekend is my anniversary. Oh yes, I was a mere baby back in 1982 when I married that tall handsome kid, who became the man of my dreams. We kind of grew up together so to speak. Both of us right out of high school, determined to marry and run off to Okinawa and live like "grown-ups" in our own little apartment. After many years, three kids and lots of military moves here we are. I couldn't ask for more, when I say my life is blessed, it really is.
I love you, Big Joe! Happy Anniversary.
Happy Mother's Day! Yep, again...what a great weekend. See, I wasn't kiddin' ya! I will say, right here on this blog for whoever to read (or perhaps no one but myself!)...My life wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for being the mother of my three wonderful children. Who are now adults. I love you, each of you.... to the moon and back again!
To my Mom...thank you. I love you....
We share the same birthday and have also grown up together. I know you've sacrificed a lot and taught me so very much. You are my friend as well as my mom.
Happy Mother's Day!
Uh oh........there's MORE! Lastly...for this post...the reason for the trip at this time is...my baby sister is graduating...uhhh....college? YES, COLLEGE! Congratulations RaSonda!! I'm so proud of you for so many reasons. All of those sleepless nights, busy days, three kids, a dog, a cat and a husband...and YOU DID IT! I'm so honored to be part of your special day. Three Cheers for the graduate! Tuesday is your big day and I just can't wait!
So, that sums up my weekend, folks. If you read all of this you're probably thinking that you know more about my life than necessary, but that's ok. I like to talk, to share and also to read about other peoples' lives as well, that's what blogging is all about, right? If you're fortunate enough to have your mom with you this weekend, hug her, thank her and just love her. She will appreciate it more than you know.
~Peace.... May you find it in the little things.
