Mother of the Bride…

Since this is about My Favorite Things…I simply had to share this.  Wedding dress shopping is a Rite of Passage for the mother of the bride (MOTB)….Something we mothers of daughters look forward to from the instant of their birth (oh, yes, we do!)


"Isn't she lovely..." (thank you Stevie Wonder"

“Isn’t she lovely…” (thank you Stevie Wonder”)

I think I’ve tagged just about every (positive) emotion there is…and I ran the gamut! At the end of the day I was exhausted, but not as tired as she was after trying on gown after gown…and all of them are so heavy. She went home and took a nap…I went home and downloaded all the pictures I’d taken…and happily re-lived every moment as I looked at each of them (something like 75 total….yes, I did go overboard…and I’m glad!)  ;o)

Happy MOTB

Tranquil & Thoughtful Day

Even though I don’t work outside my home I look forward to the weekend. Sunday is a special day.  I usually spend it quietly, working on the sweater I am knitting or reading a book in my Kindle. Today, however, I will be working on the final paper I have due tomorrow by midnight…if I don’t get it turned in, I’ll turn into a pumpkin, get a C for the class, and lower my grade point average.  I hate it that I am such a procrastinator and have decided (remember….I don’t make resolutions anymore) that this year I am going to improve….a lot. It’s about time, I’ve managed to get through a little over three years of college, hanging by the seat of my pants! Probably not by coincidence, the paper is about procrastination and all the things I’ve learned from this class.  whoo hoo….I know, it’ll be good for me.

Today’s thought is about Baby Joseph, a newborn miracle who is gong through a tough arrival into the world.  He was born yesterday by C-section, weighed nearly 10 pounds and you would have thought he”d be a beautiful, healthy boy.  Unfortunately, soon after he was born, they hurried Baby Joseph to the NICU because he was having difficulty breathing.  Doctors think his lungs may not have been ready for him to be born.  Today we know that he is recovering, but still in the NICU.  If you believe in a Higher Power, we ask that you say a quick prayer for Baby Joseph and his family.  I know his family would really appreciate it and so would I.
