Life's twists and turns


What a wild ride we're on. Last weekend my youngest daughter and I attended my oldest daughter's college graduation in Boston. In two short weeks Stephanie and I will be attending my youngest's graduation! Family is coming in and festivities must be prepared for. I will be using ideas gathered on many websites, including Heather's and Suze's.

Unfortunately, we must also face a challenge - my mother in law, a beautiful 69 year old woman, suffered a stroke. She is currently doing well with therapy, but the cause of the stroke brings some scary decisions and much uncertainty.

So we keep living our rollercoaster ride of a life, and are grateful for friends and loved ones who are there for us to share the joys, sorrows, challenges, and triumphs!

Mother's Day



Can birds read?



What a lazy, lovely Mother's Day! I did whatever I darn well pleased! :) Here are a couple of pictures from my trip to the beach early yesterday. The heron on the pier rail let me get within two feet of him to take photos, although this one was from across the walkway. A young boy walked up to look at him, and after about 10 seconds he flew off - poor kid may have thought he was a statue, he jumped so! Click on the image if you 'd like to see it up close and personal (the way we did!). And if you would like to leave me a comment, just click the blue word comments directly beneath this post to send me a little message.

Keeping up with baby

I try to check in on baby Bella to see how she is growing - you might want to visit this blog, http://daisyrockerjenn.blogspot.com, to see her photos, video, and pictures of her progress. It truly is a miracle.
