One thing I love about life is that life just keeps marching on. Regardless of
hurts and casualties along the way, life keeps going.
Looking back on these past few months, the above sentiment rings more and more true. Life marches on.
George left for the crab season, and I was left happily behind with three fish in a bowl, two kittens, one senior dog, and three blessed children to care for and love, the same way I’ve been doing the past 14 years.
We had a great holiday season. Santa came to two houses, surprising everyone with new bed comforters, books, games, and even a Wii game.
Eva had her birthday party, in which she requested her guests bring toys for Toys For Tots. We delivered the toys to the organization and the children were met gratitude and appreciation.
The children and I attended church, karate, organized new toys, and helped take care of our baby, Valerie. Even though Valerie is about to turn three later this month, she remains “our baby and little friend.”
Last night, the children and I met up with my extended family to celebrate the 50th anniversary of my mom and dad. When I told some people recently that my parents had been married for 50 years, they couldn’t believe it.
“Are they happy?” they asked.
“Well, there have been some up and downs through the years, but yes, they are happy,” I replied.
Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
Last night, Eva said “Grandpa and Grandma are like the King and Queen of our family.”
Mom and Dad, some things turned out the way you and we hoped. Some turned out better than we hoped. Some fell far short of what we hoped.
I don’t know what any of us would do without either one of you! We love you!!
