HAPPY HUMP DAY
And, yes, as the title of this post says, I'm taking this week off to celebrate a few assorted holidays.
First is tomorrow (Thursday), my birthday. I'm hitting a milestone this year but I'm not admitting which one. My birthday has been bittersweet the last few years because for most of my life I shared birthdays with my Dad. I miss him terribly and "our day" will never be the same. But I'll always remember those cakes we shared with both our names on them, and having his help blowing out the candles.
Friday is another biggie - but with a different fella. This guy and I are celebrating 50 years of wedded bliss. Or at least something reasonably close to it. I've already renewed his contract for 50 more. (It was a no-brainer.) And, yes, I was a child bride.
And Sunday, of course, is Mother's Day.
Our moms have both been gone for quite a while and we were very blessed to have had them, but there are a couple other moms I'm delighted to share the day with... my two daughters-in-law, the moms to my grandkids.
This picture of our crazy clan was taken during a lovely professional photo shoot a couple years ago. There were lots of more traditional poses, but this is one of my favorites. It's just so...us.
(Can you count the bunny ears?)
So, if you'll forgive me, I'm going to spend this week celebrating, remembering, and enjoying.
Oh, and working on wedding preparations. Someone in the picture above is getting married later this month. Can you guess which one?
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms. Enjoy your day.
See you next week.
Thought for Today:
I am so blessed.
