Hi everyone! I had a wonderful Mother's Day!! My daughter and grandson paid me a visit and my son is staying we me and with Chelsea and Desi (they are across the street) for 2 1/2 months!! WOW!! That is a LONG visit!! The longest he has ever had. He's made it through a year of college! Matt, I'm very proud of you! My Dad and I picked him up from the Philadelphia Airport the other day. It was a 13 hour day on the road. My kids don't like to fly into the local airport because they don't like the small commuter planes and they don't like to pay the extra $200. I don't like the long ride!! LOL We hit a lot of traffic and Pennsylvania has the WORST roads. They are perpetually doing road work and signs are almost non-existent. When they do exist they are poorly placed. Oh my. If you are ever visit PA, KNOW where you are going!! When we were driving home and Matt and my Dad were talking I had noticed how strikingly similar the two of them were in looks and demeanor. Matt has started shaving his head because he is going bald. He looks a lot like my Dad did at his age. He even sounds like him. It's neat to see. They get along well, too, and keep great company talking about things I don't even understand. Matt is an intelligent one!
Oh, good news... Chelsea found out that she is having another boy. CONGRATULATIONS, Chelsea!! She is due October 7. She is starting to really show. Awwwwww... another little one to be best friends with Josiah =).
Speaking of babies, my lovely friend Merry is going to be a first-time grandma either tonight or tomorrow!! Good news all-around!! CONGRATULATIONS, Merry! They know it is a boy! His name will be Jonathan David. She is so excited!!
On a final note, I have a very special friend in my life, Leslie, who has cerebral palsy. Leslie has started a journal about her life with her service dog, Brom, who is a black lab. She has done her first entry and I would love if some of you would help her feel welcome. I have not taught her how to put in pictures yet, so I am putting in pictures of her dog here in this entry. I am sure she will soon share loads of photos of her wonderful dog in her journal as well as stories of her relationship with him. Brom is the most special dog I have ever met!! He has a gentleness that is incredible and is wicked smart!! Josiah loves him!! He squeals when he sees him (as well as Leslie) and Brom allows Josiah to pull his hair and ears and tail. So, if you are able, please visit Leslie and welcome her. Thanks!! I hope everyone is enjoying there week!!! Hugs from me to everyone! xox
I'm a gal with chronic pain and illness who has been forced to live life slowly. I appreciate this pace. I've learned to notice small joys and smell the flowers along the way =). Come in and say hello...
