Well, it has been over a year since I last posted anything. I wanted to start blogging and catch up on everything which has happened in a year, but that would take too long. So here's a summary: Andrew joined the Navy and is stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. I miss him, but was fortunate to spend July 4th weekend with him. April is working hard at a full time job and keeps busy with her two English Bull Mastiffs, Knox & Lola. Kayla just moved to Chattanooga and will be teaching 10th & 11th grade English this fall. The grandbabies are now 5 and 2. Yes, folks, time does fly!!! My cousin's son & wife just had a beautiful baby girl born on June 26th. Aubie finally grew into those huge ears of his. Summer has been very busy so far and a family beach trip is in the works. Life remains interesting with plenty of ups and downs and stress this summer. Sometimes I would like to get off this crazy merry-go-round called life and rest my mind and soul for awhile. But that would be silly and is only my wishful thinking. I am truly blessed in all areas of my life. Well, I guess I will try to post some pictures if I can remember how. Take care! Love ya!!!
Our precious little male kitten who we adopted from a local shelter on June 12th. He makes a wonderful addition to our family and gives Harley the companionship she needs when we are out of town. He is oddly shaped right now and we are hoping he grows into those BIG ears! And he was named after the mascot for Auburn University!
I was reminded by a dear friend that I have not written on my blog in quite some time and she is right. I have neglected my blog for other interests.
Here is what has been happening since January:
Started back to work (on a temporary basis) in January Had Gall Bladder out on February 11 (no problems there) Snow in Elba, Alabama on February 12th - a very rare event for us Went back to work to work 2 weeks later part time My baby (Andrew) turned 25 in March Kelley Michelle is now crawling full speed
I am not one to make New Year resolutions as they are soon forgotten, but I hope to do better with my blog in 2010. If you read now, do not give up on me. I have so much to say, but not always in the mood to do so.
My heart goes out to my friend, Rose, who lost her precious daughter, Mary, in 2009. Rose, I cannot begin to feel the grief of your soul, but my heart goes out to you and Kerry. I can only try to look back and understand the same type of grief our family went through when my brother's life was taken at age 9 in 1968. Be strong and continue to honor Mary. Keep her memory alive and she will always be near you in spirit. Love ya!
Wishing everyone a Blessed, Healthy and Happy 2010!!!
I am very blessed and give thanks to God for all the blessings in my life. I am a wife to Jerry, mother to April & Andrew, step-mom to Lance & Misty, Cammie and Kayla and "Dee Dee" to grandson, Jerryn Hayes & granddaughter, Kelley Michelle (children of Misty & Lance). I have two adorable cats, Harley & Aubie. I love quiet, the simple things of life and true friends. I am sensitive and compassionate. One day I hope to settle down at the beach in a condo with my best friend Jerry and enjoy the lazy, carefree life.
