A sight for sore eyes …

My son George went to dinner with us last night. He drove over from the university in yucky traffic to spend a few hours with us. He was home about two weeks ago for his Spring Break. But honestly, it doesn’t matter if I have recently seen my college kids. I miss them so quickly after a visit it’s insane! And because George knows that, he made sure he saw us. What a great kid!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you see a sight for sore eyes!!!

Best surprise EVER …

Yesterday Libs told me that Sid needed me to be home this morning to receive a package that would be delivered after 8 am. I originally thought that Sidney had accidentally shipped something important to me, instead of to herself. As I asked more questions about what to do with the package once it was delivered, I was told that the package was for me. Being Pi Day today I immediately thought that Sid somehow figured out how to send me a pie. HA! That is absolutely something she would do! But what she did, was even better.

When I returned home from Reese’s school this morning, I opened the door to my “package”. IT WAS SID! My sweet daughter booked an early flight and came HOME! I literally screamed when I saw her. Then I cried like a baby. I was missing her so much! Now with George coming home for Spring Break on Friday we will all be together again. YAY!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get the best surprise EVER!!!

Lovely things …

Today as I sat getting my nails painted with intricate designs I realized something about myself. I decorate EVERYTHING. My house. My car. My nails. My kids! Thank goodness Reese still loves bows, HA! And I think I figured out why I do. I am always looking for reasons to be happy. It’s become my superpower. A lot of it comes naturally for me but there are those times in my life when a little extra goes a long way. And I find that it is often the silliest and smallest details that bring me my biggest smiles.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you decorate your life with lovely things!!!

Happily pulled in 1000 different directions …

Yoga. Back to college. A tennis lesson. Dance. Girl Scouts. Cookies. LOTS OF COOKIES. A film crew. Winter Formal. A facial. And hopefully, a nice quiet dinner. Yup. I think that sums up most of our Saturday. I have lived this busyness for so long that I honestly think I’d miss it if suddenly we were no longer involved in absolutely EVERYTHING. I certainly wouldn’t know what to do with myself.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are happily pulled in 1000 different directions!!!

The happening place to be …

I was tired today. REALLY tired. So much so that I actually took a nap. It wasn’t very long and super broken but it was definitely valuable. And it was a happy nap too. I say that because of the two dreams I had. The first dream I had was of dolphins playing in our backyard. They were so loud and having a ball! I worried that they would disturb our neighbors. I admit, this one is strange on all sorts of levels. The second dream I had was about a lively party going on in our backyard. People were talking and laughing. They were having a great time! I’ll be honest, I have no idea what got into my head that explains why I would dream of our backyard TWICE in one nap. But I did. I guess my subconscious dream-state mind thinks our backyard is fantastic … and aquatic animal friendly.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you end up in the most happening place to be!!!

Feeling it …

It has been a long week filled with many ups and downs. But really, what week isn’t? I believe that life is best lived when it is felt with raw emotion. When life happens, good or bad, and we must simply “roll with it”. Those times when we are immobilized by fear and sadness. Or when we are overwhelmed with joy and feelings of being loved. When laughter and tears are experienced without force. All of it, real. Genuine. And perfect for the situation that we find ourselves in. It is in these precious moments that I am most alive. Proof, that I am not missing out on the lessons and gifts that life has for me. I love “owning” it. THIS IS MY LIFE. Ugly or beautiful … I wouldn’t trade for anything.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel it!!!
