My Funny Valentine

Happy late Valentine's to everyone!

It was a wonderful time at my house this Valentine's Day. It was nice for my husband & I to be off together. I love spending time with my honey. Even if he is working out in the yard or feeding the birds, I love to stand at the window & watch him. He soothes my soul.

Friday night, I had an open crop at my house. I rush in from work to get the craft room ready & when I turned the corner, I saw a pot of blooming tulips right in the middle of the table! Sitting beside it was a box of Premium Mint M&M's (if you haven't tried these, you're really missing out on some chocolatey goodness!) & a funny little card. He just doesn't do this. I usually get a card & we go out to eat. It touched my heart so much that he went outside of his box for me.

Wishing you lots of love & happiness!

My Director's mother went to be with the Lord last night. She was 90 years old & had lived a full life. It was tough seeing a man that can make me laugh & turn around & make me want to quit my job, so subdued. My heart goes out to him & his family.

It has brought to mind the death of my own beautiful mother. She was only 39 when she went home to be with the Lord. I was 21 & with a baby. The devastation I felt at that time still hits me hard. She was the backbone of our family & her smile lit up the room when she walked in. Her singing could make Angels weep from the sheer beauty of her voice. I have felt my mother with me at times. It is so comforting to know that I can still feel her presence at times. But there have been times when I have felt her absence so keenly that it brought me to my knees. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her & wish for her guidance & to hear her sweet voice.

All of this to say that if you are still blessed with the presence of your mom, give her a hug & tell her how much you love her. You never know when it will be the last time.

Mom, I love you!

Roller Coaster

I have been on an emotional roller coaster ride today! My boss totally ticked me off today & then I get this text from my 25 year old son....."I think something's wrong with me....I've been coughing up blood all day...."

After I picked myself up off the floor, I called him & he said he thought it was his tonsils. So after he got off work, I picked him up & yes, he looked like he had swallowed a golf ball & it had lodged in his left tonsil. The poor guy could barely talk.

The doctor took one look at his throat & pronounced it Strep. That, I can deal with!!!!

On a happier note......I went & weighed in tonight. I've lost another 2.6 lbs. for a total of 12!!!!!

I think I need to go lay down.......
