A Birthday Celebrated ~ A Birthday Grieved..

All in a 24 hour time span..

Yesterday, my darling SweetPee turned, "FREEEEE!!!"  As sassy and tantrum-filled as this time in her life is, dang she's adorable.  Tonight we will have a small family party in which she plans to, "Open pwesents, bwhoa out candles and eat cake.. blue cake..."

God, I love that girl.

Today would've been Matt's 49th birthday.  I'm trying to push past the gloom of sadness, not dwell on memories of the last 10 birthdays we've shared and really try to focus on the joy of living.  I cannot allow myself to get swallowed up by grief and truly look forward to our little gathering tonight. 

And the Merlot.

Full Circle Flashback ...

3 Years Ago Today:

Jack and Jill moved in...  Our beautiful 4 1/2 year old twins and first foster placements..

Oh my, what a ride that was.. seems like 100 years ago and yesterday..  No, we are not in contact but yes, I do happen by their neighborhood every now and again running errands.

And I still pray for their safety and well being.

Pay Attention!

Because a minute ago she couldn't talk..
And now she jabbers up a storm.

An hour ago, he would explode over anything,
And now he says, "Yes Ma'am" and "No Ma'am" .. taking things in stride.

A day ago she hummed her ABC's.. 
And now she's almost got them mastered.

("...ELEMENOPEEEE!" sung the loudest)

A month ago, he struggled to read...
And now he's so confident he is teaching baby sister.

Try not to look away, it passes so quickly..
Do not take it for granted.
2011 taught me what a precious gift time truly is..
Try not squander it.

Tomorrow = Orange Friday 2.0

Sport your Orange tomorrow..

Because Mayor Hancock SAYS SO!
