Things to go nuts over, right now:
-The firstborn's here, with his ever so sweet girlfriend!
-The huge european music contest that keeps not only my family bananaz but most of our country and Europe too!
-The morning hour when the big boy, his sweetheart AND the hubs still sleep - then The Boy and I sneak The Dog out, switch the TV and Mac on and go hay wire knowing the rest is upstairs, sound asleep!!!
-The rays of the sun and the fact that they're now starting to feel a tiny little bit warm. It's true!
-The mere fact that the meteorologists declared spring, in the south.
-The fact that small flowers are starting to show in the garden, what could give more promise?
Today - writing this - it's Saturday. It's the best day of the week, my boys are both here and we're off to our favorite place in town for coffee. The firstborn has never been there so it's a big f i n a l l y !!
Hay wire waiting for the big bro, who's on the way...
Tell tale signs.
Barefoot again and this time in sun and on snowless ground!
Hey, if I didn't know better I'd say July?!!
Yep, The Big Boy is on his way...
As is warmer days.
What is the new news now? Be still my oh-so-pounding heart.
Be very still!
Fun, at the favorite place.
The owners offered popsicles to ALL male kids - big and small...!
(to celebrate the remarkable time)
And the men would not turn the offers down. No way!
Special times call for special measures...!
(didn't I tell ya it's a favorite place, eh?!)
If there was ever a happy mama...
Be still like the candle.
I find it a magical riddle: how could I ever be able to experience a greater love?
... and yet I know: it'll be next time.
Those boys. Of course there's no such thing as a still heart!!
Saturday evening cooking and all is swell :-)
Moments in time. The moments are gone but the memories? Never!
They may not look totally alike on the outside - but boy are they alike on the inside!
These sure are the special times - and such a remedy for a tired old soul.
Watching the love they have between them, of course, makes my love grow even more.
And how well and bravely she blends in the mix. I'm impressed!
The cutest love birds there is, actually!
And so my days persevere, these days, they kinda flow by emotionally and intensely and also in a way of learning to take second place. There are others, must be and ought to be, others to take the front seat.
I feel the love, so much love, and I enjoy letting that un-still heart pound away.
For it feels like it might just pop out of my chest!
The chest is warm and alive and for one more day I'll be so blessed as to have them all around me.
I intend to keep carpe:ing that day, nothing else is important.
Great times here!
Tuesday's already here too. I'm late with the post - best get this show on the road!!
Have a great Tuesday, folks!
