04/18/2008

Today is my Momma's birthday. I can never remember the year she was born so I can't tell you what age she would have been but I can tell you this, she is in Heaven, she is young and healthy, no more disease, no more fear, nothing but Heaven.

1999 was a tough year for myself and my two brothers, Scott and Mike. We lost our stepmother, Linda, our beloved Mother, Bunny, and our father, Steve. All within 6 months of each other. It was very tough but we got through it and I truly believe we are stronger because of it. I find great comfort in knowing with a doubt that they are all three "upstairs" and happy.

Today is also my husband Joe's birthday. That has always been a really cool thing for me. Mother never did get to meet Joe but Dad did. He was the only man I ever dated in my entire life that my Dad gave his approval. That means a lot to a girl. I know that Mother would have fallen in love with him as well. After all, he has been so great with both of my children and still is.

So Happy Birthday Momma and Happy Birthday Jo-Jo. I love you both with all my heart.

Hi Lisa,
thanks for your lovely comments about my grands and my dog snoozing on a Sunday morning in bed!

I too, lost my mother and mother in law within 7 months of one another and after 8 years it is still so tough, so very tough, so I can empathize.

We are on two extremes of the the United States. I envy your country lifestyle since I grew up in rural WI. What I don't envy anyone is the snow shoveling which is why I have lived and retired in Calif. *wink*
Enjoy those "grand" years we have. When are the twins due?

The twins are due around June 1st but we feel she will have them before that. Her daddy wanted them to be born today, his b-day, but they aren't big enough yet! Meanwhile the twins Momma is on total bedrest. She just got out of the hospital 2 days ago after being there for 3 1/2 weeks. Needless to say she was happy to get home!

I like that you remember your mother's birthday. One's love of parents are like few others--so unconditional. Have a good weekend.
