I woke up to the smell of bacon… a full hot breakfast awaited me. I read my card, admired my flag, and smiled. For lunch I had a rare Krystals treat. In the mail were pictures and cards from my Arizona girls. I snacked on cookies from my Georgia girls and boys while admiring their cards and drawings . Texts and calls from everyone all day long… Steak dinner with my sweetheart, home-made apple pie from a dear friend, and a sci-fi movie to top it off. Yes, it was a darn good day!
Dear Reese Madison, Please never change. You’re growing up just right!
Staring out my window, feeling a little down and a little mad, because my team lost in the first ever college football playoffs. The ground is wet from rain, the grass is still fighting to be green even on the third day of 2015. Cars occasionally speed by. Kind of a lazy Saturday. I should be hard at work for the blitz I know is coming Monday at work, but I’m just staring out my window. We’ll get ‘em next year.
The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. — Ashley Montagu
Coffee break… I walk the short way from my office to the back door of the house, step in. Wendy left for work an hour ago, but the TV is on a Christmas music station. I smile to myself because I love what she loves, and I feel happy. She looks forward to Christmas each year with hope and enthusiasm for a wonderful holiday, now another Christmas has passed. Now we enjoy the afterglow of the last few days and prepare for a new year. A new year of hopes and dreams, both new and renewed, but most important to me, a new year together.
