A Letter My Kiddos And My Mom

My darlings,

I can't believe that another year has passed and it is already Mother's Day again. It seems just like last week that you were running around like banshees and I was taxi-ing you to baseball, Kung-Fu, ballet, birthday parties, band practice and summer camps.

You took a nap and woke up grown and I can't believe it at all. Now Miss Nan is going to make us grandparent's soon and we are excited beyond belief........new life in our family that will be cherished and adored.

I long for you every single day even though you are a phone call away.......

Mr. J. You loved to wear my sunglasses and broke at least a hundred pairs. I just bought more.........

This is one of my very favorite pictures in the world taken about 20 years ago. We were all so young and happy...........

Dearest Mom, this year will mark 33 years since you've been with our family here on earth. I remember when we would get together like this at your Mom's, our Gran's, when we were little kiddos. We were loud, boisterious, wild and somewhat destructive as a group and you laughed it off..........most of the time. I often wonder what you would think of me today as a grown woman.........

I always like to imagine that you and Dad are dancing to Glen Miller or Tommy Dorsey on a cloud still watching over us and probably still having a laugh. I hope you know that your grand kiddo's would adore you and I know how excited you would be that we are going to have a little one running around soon. Please watch over out little one from up above as only a great-grandmother can do. And please.........help me with all of this because I have no idea what is in store for me other than great joy and much laughter................

Happy Mother's Day to all my blog Mom's. May your day be filled with love, joy and laughter. Prince and I are going to worship together this morning and then have Auntie Mom and Cousin Sis and the family over for a barbeque today. Maybe play horseshoes and love being together as family.........
