Happy Birthday Devan Marie

Happy Birthday Devan

You are forever in my hearts. We love and miss you.

You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow andlive yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what she'd want:

Smile, Open your Eyes, Love and Go on.

well there was a cute picture but I cant get it here

My Living Will
Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
They got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.
They are such morons.........
thought you could enjoy a smile.......

says it all, dont ya think

Lyndseys Wedding Shower

The day started out with lots of snow, but thankfully we were still able to do Lyndsey's shower. My closet and dearest friend hosted a bridal shower and it turned out wonderfully.
OK, Miss Ash, I removed the pic but only because I love you so much. Personally I thought it was a great pic.

Ok, Erin, I assume I can still see the boys, and I'd like to see them without it being a party or a holiday.

Can you believe it

Isn't this a perfect snow angel, I thought so The apple of his eyes, he would do anything for her, including building a snowman at night in the freezing weather.

This child of mine was beyond happy to have snow. It was beautiful before we went to bed, but this morning was breathtaking. God sent us snow all the way to SC. It was beautiful, I'm sure we easily had 5 inches here. Grace had me up before I had coffee out in it this morning. The snow has been shining bright so I'm sure it wont be here long, and I hate to image what it is going to do to my yard, but for now, its beautiful.
Thank you God for such a beautiful day. A true blessing.

Wedding Announcement

As you know my oldest is getting married next month, still cant believe that. Seems he was just in middle school playing his games and high school in the march bands and skateboarding. That sweet little face, always so kind and worried about everyone elses feelings, yet at the same time, always the first one to cut a joke. Where did the time go, that sweet little boy grew up before my eyes and at the time it seemed like they would never grow up and now looking back, where did the time go. It goes so fast, I thought he'd be the one to stay at home forever, boy did he surprise me, he moved out almost two years ago. Not long after Grace came home. I'm so proud of him and the man he has become. I was so young when I had Brandon, Son always know, you were not planned BUT you WERE ALWAYS LOVED AND WANTED. Never doubt that for one minute, having you, was never a mistake. I know there were times when you thought differently, and at times we were growing up together, but son, I would not change it for one minute. Please know How much I love you and how very PROUD I am of you. God has blessed you. I hope that you and Lyndsey will have a wonderful life together, and when the time comes and you start your own family I know you will be a wonderful father. I love you little boy and I always will.

So what started out as a wedding announcement has left me in tears. Enjoy every minute of every day son.

In all the blogs I read over the last four years, I've not seen this quote before. I sent a friend a chain letter and she sent me this back.
It is by Maya Anelgelou
Love recognizes no barriers, it jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
She said or in my case, it spans oceans!
