MemorialDay 2010

Thinking of all who have lost their lives for our country.We are so lucky to live in the land of freedom and choices. It is up to each of us to make the right ones!!!My only little project this month has been this key chain. I saw one made up on a blog way back when I first started blogging and wanted to do it but never got around to it. Here it is the last day of May and it is finished and shown here with some of my key collection of old. As I look at the old keys I can think of each one who served and they DO hold a key to my heart, Thank you !Blessings and hugs to all.Marie

A New Day

The last few weeks have flown by and I am glad they are over. We are about finished cleaning out that house of hers and the the big yard sale is June 5th.I am so looking forward to getting all this stuff off my porch and out of my garage, seems it manages to come here to be stored as no one else has room. The best news is my precious Faith made JV Cheerleading at her school!!!!!!!!! She is so happy and so are we. One of her best friends made it too. Looking forward to finding my sewing machine among all the chores to do, missing it very much. Thanks all for bearing with me through the ups and downs of life. Bless you! Hugs, Marie

Time is something I have lost this last week in my heart and life.With out too much life history for you,I was adopted somewhere around 3-6 months by my fathers parents who were the most wonderful parents in the world I was loved so much,I was truly blest. Now along with all of this I wasprivelidged to also have my birth mother knownto me and share my life. Even though she movedalot and didn't comeback into my life full time till a few years ago. She actually moved into my area. I talked to her a week ago on Saturdsay night about 7:00 or so. The next morning I received a call fromone of her friends whom she talked to each morning at 7:30 that she could not reach my mom, it is now 10 in the morning so I go to her house and find her and call 911- she had suffered a stroke on Saturday night. To not burden you with a long story-she was admited to ICU , many test,no responces and we had to put into hospice and she past away early Sunday morning May 2. I have no feelings, I am numbed still bu tgoing through the daily things I have to do . She would been 84 this week. Maybe after this week is finished and I have time to find myself I will be able to get back to the other t hings I love so much. I couldn't blog or think so I just have let everything go. Thank you for your thoughts. Hugs and prayers, Marie
