Hello, Old Friend!

Dear Blog,

I cannot believe it was last November that I last posted.  So many times I have thought of you and my fingers have itched to jot even just a few words on your page.  Tonight I am compelled and cannot go to sleep until I give an update of everything that has transpired since November. 

  • My dad completed his chemotherapy
  • Favorite Son-In-Law and Kidlet One announced they are having another baby
  • Baby C learned to crawl
  • My brother lost his job
  • Kidlet Three gets playing time on the junior varsity and varsity hockey teams for his high school
  • Christmas was sacred
  • I was moved to a temporary office for my job and then in January moved to a yet a different location. 
  • Kidlet Two celebrated a year at the restaurant-that-asks-too-much from him
  • The Husband continues his sharing of candy at all hockey games
  • Dad's PET scan in January caused some concern and the first biopsy came back negative of cancer.  Thank you Jesus!
  • Believe it or not this old brain in my head allowed me to get two A's on my first college courses that I finished in December.
  • Hockey boys have been growing their hair out and call it 'flow' and 'wings'.  With my natural curl I guess it looks like wings and Kidlet Three tells me I need to get that taken care of as in get a haircut.  Why can boys have wings but not their mothers?
  • Grandbaby number two is a BOY and he will arrive end of June or early July (happy, happy, happy).
There's a whole lot more that I could list but let me end by saying that I've decided to have a Gratitude Attitude.  Every person I know has a bundle of trials they are mudding through and it is so easy to get down and bummed out.  However, that just sucks life out of us.  If that is where you are at, speak out right now and say "I am going to have a Gratitude Attitude".  And then start making that list of things to be thankful for.  Speak out a 'thank you' for the parking space you get.  Or when you start your grocery shopping be thankful you don't shop in open air markets with sides of beef or pork heads staring at you.  We have a lot to be grateful for.

So Dear Blog, I am glad you are still here for me after all these months.  I promise to not be such a stranger!

So Amazed
