A sweet surprise for ~leelee~!!!!
Hello World! It’s me, yes really! It’s ME! I’ve drifted and neglected my beloved blog, sometimes LIFE just gets too busy and hectic and the summer sucks you into its bliss and your priorities change and your job is demanding and you have many commitments that you know you must show up for, well these are all truly lame excuses. Let me just sit and relax for 2 minutes! My youngest child is so creative. She has a knack for all sorts of crafty things and projects and one of her talents is web designing. She’s pretty good at it and she has a wonderful DIY website of her own. She was preaching for months and months, how my blog needed a lift and I so needed my own “domain”. With a new job, a new apartment, a new boyfriend, freelance work, etc. She doesn’t have a lot of downtime to fix mama’s blog page! I get it, I never pushed her or nagged her. We celebrated my Birthday yesterday, with a lovely dinner and cake and presents and this was her big present to me. A newly designed blog and web page with my very own domain. I cried a bucket of tears, she is so thoughtful and always finds the perfect way to show me. I miss my blog, my sanctuary, my readers. Writing is therapy, its cleansing and sometimes the memories are so very vivid, I often write while tears flow down my cheeks. For me, since I was a kid, its been my passion. Lately, I have pushed it to the wayside. I always say to myself…SELF! When you have something to say, to share, to pen, you will write again. So here I am, with a few minutes to spare before I leave for work. The summer is flying by. I blink and I turn the calendar ahead another month! We made our yearly July 4th reunion in New Hampshire. Loads of fun and sun (and HOT!). It was really nice to get away for a few days, I didn’t even BLOG when I was away. I just enjoyed the days and nights on the lake. The fireworks! The bbq! Dancing and singing and surrounded by people who love each other passionately. They enjoy each other AND they’re all related to one another. Good times for all! In a quick recap, the gardens are flourishing, my kids are healthy and busy, my husband is good and helpful. I love seeing my great Neices growing and swimming and beaching and making memories and laughing. My neice Amanda will marry in October, she is the first of all of our children to marry, exciting! I am in the middle of making some big changes in my life..more to come of that soon I hope. Overall, God is good and he watches over my family and I pray each day and thank Jesus for his love & devotion. I promise to come back, to continue on my journey here. I always have a “story” and I love sharing them with you! Stay well and remember to catch every sunset you can. Love & Peace ~ leelee
