Time flies

I am feeling very melancholy today.  We had a wonderful time on vacation.  We’ve had a challenging weekend with flooding and water in our lower level.  As I watched many treasured memory items get carted out, and flipped through a few of the rescued photos, I was reminded how much life and love our family shares.

In just two short weeks, our baby bird flies the coop.  She is excited and nervous all at once.  I want her to go, grow, and of course, achieve more than I ever did.  It is so bittersweet.  I will miss her so much!!!  I can’t imagine what it is going to feel like.  The empty bedroom, no arguing with her sibling, the quiet ( less laughter-no radio blaring-no friends sleeping over)…sigh.

I wonder if we can feel ready to launch our children?

It’s been a simply fantastic week!  Looking forward to a few more days of having my toes in the sand!

Have you lost a friend?  I recently did.

Mistaken friendliness for friendship?  Yes, that too.

Feelings of being let down?  Or blindsided?  Recently, I discovered some things, if I am honest, a lot of things.  They sent me into a tailspin.  They seem to have come out of nowhere.  Others may say, there have been signs for months.  Just adding up, piling up.  For me though, wow, just wow.

It’s been a long week here.  Writing this out, and talking to my husband, and our pastor has helped me.  By the time this publishes, vacation will have started!  A week of family, friends, sun, surf, and hopefully, relaxation and regrouping.

Change is always hard.

Happy Independence Day America!

i don’t think it ever gets old looking out the window when flying.  It put a smile on my face when I was very sleepy!

yesterdays breakfast was a real treat at the new Paula Deens restaurant.  Food was good and very plentiful.

A nice day of both running around and relaxing at the pool.  Spent some quality time with my friend and her family.  Now I’m up and ready to get our toes in the sand!
