A Weekend of Celebrations

I had this post all ready to go last Friday, I was just waiting until the boys got home from school for a (not so) improptu photo shoot. However, when I sat down to post it later that night I found the sweet words that Jay had written instead. Am I lucky, or am I lucky? I thank God every day for bringing him to me.

May 7th, 2010 marked my 36th year here on Earth. It's been a ride full of joy, laughter, love and a few tears.

Every year is a blessing. This year, I am not hung up on the number in the sense of, oh my heavens I am getting old. Rather, I think being healthy and happy for 36 years is a gift that I must cherish. It could change in a heartbeat.

Hot date with my boys

May 8th, 2010 marked 11 years of wedded bliss with my one and only. Another beautiful ride that I hope won't end for decades. Lots of them.

To Jay, walking beside you is where I am meant to be. It's been a privaledge to be your wife for the last 11 years. Thank you for so many things, more than I could ever put adequately into words.


May 9th, 2010 marked my 9th Mother's day as a mommy. To say that I am blessed to have the title "Mommy" or "Mom" as it is, in time bound to become, is an understatement.


And my Mom celebrated (we hope!) her 40th year as a mother. She has the grey hair to prove it. Naturally, I blame my brother for most of it but those three on her left temple are all my fault - age 16 - 20, need I say more?

Mom, thank you. You have been there for me, always. You have encouraged, supported, pushed, disciplined, and stepped back and let me fall when you felt it right. I am blessed to call you Mom.

There was much to celebrate. I am blessed beyond measure.

Well now, congratulations, happy birthday and I KNOW you had a wonderful mother's day. You're still a young 'un - all that birthday stuff only counts if you feel like your number, which you can't possibly, based on how good you look!!! :) Happy May to you!
