Crawling Under a Rock Today

Hey Everyone

Crawling under a rock isn't as easy as it sounds. First you must find a good size rock that you can fit under. Then there is the placement of the rock, you must ask yourself "Can anyone see me or find me once I'm under there?" On the other hand I could just hide in my closet. It has a light and all I would have to do is remove my shoes and other junk that is taking up the floor and then I'm golden.

But alas, my family won't allow me the pleasure of disappearing on this day. What's the point of turning 39 + 1  if you can't disappear on the day it happens. Sheesh!!

That's right, I am now 39 + 1 years old. This cute, squashed up nose, little baby is now 39 + 1. Where has the time gone and what have I done with that time. All these questions are running through my head on this day and truthfully I have few answers. However, let's see if I can list some of the accomplishments I have achieved:

  • I learned to walk (I was 18 months at the time but I learned none the less)
  • I can ride a 2 wheel bike (but I haven't since I was a teenager)
  • I can drive a car. I feat I am most proud of. The only thing is my husband won't let me have a car that has any power due to the fact that I have a lead foot.
  • I passed high school, that's something considering I skipped three months in my senior year.
  • I got married and raised a husband. A feat that every women should be proud of
  • I raised two great, beautiful and intelligent children. One who is married and now I'm teaching her how to raise her husband.
  • My husband says I'm wise and smart (although I wonder if he's just sucking up when he says that)
  • I'm a good daughter (at least I hope I am)

But the last accomplishment I am most proud of is that I'm a child of God. He created me and wants the best for me. So on this day - the day I'd rather crawl under a rock, I can say Thank you God for 39 + 1 years of life!

Have a great week everyone
BTW: I won't be one of those women who stays 39 forever. Next year I will gladly say that I'm 41 but the number 4 with that dreadful 0 at the end of it is not something that I can handle, so for this year I am 39 + 1.

16 Years Already!

June 8, 2011 will be Ben's 16th Birthday! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. From a hyper little boy to a caring, loving, and handsome young man (He really is! Don't let my bias fool you.)

Ben, your Dad and I can't begin to tell you how proud we are of you and the person you are becoming. You already are a man after God's own heart.

Love you my dear! Happy Birthday!

Love Mom

Our Baby is Married!

Hey Everyone

Saturday May 7, 2011 we welcomed Josh into our family. The wedding was everything that Brianna wanted.

It was wonderful that all of Geoff's family made the trip from Ontario to be with us.

Geoff and I are now looking forward to a new adventure in being a father and mother -inlaw. Please pray for Josh, he's going to need it!

So now our daughter is Mrs. Brianna Picard. Boy, that's going to take some getting used to.

Have a wonderful week everyone
