Because I haven't taken the opportunity to blog the way I should have, it's gonna take some time to catch up and I've decided I'm gonna have to work backwards! Weston and Taylor, both children of Heather's, celebrated special birthdays in the last two months, and my oldest grand-daughter, Kloyie turned 15.
Weston turned 8; he is excited for scouts, and doing so well in school that the teacher and principal have suggested he attend school for exceptional students. We always knew that 'big Noggin was meant for more than bouncing off walls and down the stairs! He has been involved in soccer, baseball, and now Jr. Jazz basketball. I love those brown eyes, and that smile!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to these wonderful blessings in our lives. Each have individual personalities, with so much enthusiasm for life, and excitement for what the future holds for them. Each one possesses a special part of my heart, and memories that I hold dear. Being a Mother and a Grandmother is truly Life's greatest joys, and Biggest job!
After 2 (?) years away from this blogging business, I decided I needed to try my hand at it again. It's difficult navigating through it and trying to figure out what I did before. I know these pages have been quiet lately. It is not that I don't have anything to share, I have just been in a different place in my life and making changes that I hope are for the better. I know I'm in a much more peaceful place and love having independence that I don't feel I was ever able to experience in my youth. With the unpacking of boxes at a new location, going through old photos and memories flooding back of my childhood, my children's childhoods, and now my grandchildren, I find that my value of material goods has diminished. I float through my days remembering good friends, times in my life that left an impression, realizing that some things I have done in my life need to be apologized for, and cherishing the day for what it offers, and what I can do to make it more enjoyable.
