Faith is 3 today !
Saturday, August 14, 2010
Today is Faith's 3rd birthday. She called me this morning to tell me ! She said she wants lots of presents, and her party will be at the waterpark !!! Yesterday she started preschool. Her mama let her dress herself because she is such a big girl now. She chose a black t-shirt that says, " I'm a little spoiled" and has a crown on it. She decided it was perfect with her red and pink tutu and pink cowboy boots. Does it get any better ?
Today I put up 9 quarts of tomatoes. My friend Francine and her husband grow more than they can eat. I can hers with mine and we share the lot. It makes a wonderful day for me. I easily slip back to the times I really needed to can foods for the savings. My children still love the peaches, beef jerky and granola I make. The boys (3), the sons-in-law (3) and now grandsons (9) all anticipate beef jerky on their birthdays.
We had some deep sadness this week too. An friend of mine, a fellow potter, passed away on Tuesday. Also, a young woman my son dated about 8 years ago, decided to take her own life. My meditation today included their journey.
Just as I was about to end this blog, my 7 year old grandson, Zachary, called. He was delighted to inform me that he is stuck in Boston. My daughter, her hubby, Zachary and 4 year old twins are indeed grounded in Boston on their way home from vacation. Zach was thrilled to report that he gets to eat lobster tonight! Mason got stung by a bee on his ear and Mackenzie has 3 pieces of candy in her mouth at one time ! He went snorkeling with his dad and saw coral and sea anemone! He went golfing for the first time with his dad and he got to drive the golf cart. ! He climbed apple trees and went down a super slide ! He's bringing home some new books and and and........ life goes on,
