Today, they are celebrating one of our granddaughter's first birthday. We aren't there. It seems to be the "tradition" that we miss the first birthday parties for our grandchildren. How sad... I plan to change that for Grace and Posey and the other ones that come.
To help me not be so sad about missing the birthday party - and the fact that I don't have any children real close helping me pack and clean... a precious young lady from work came over today and SCRUBBED!!!!! What a blessing she was. She brought me a beautiful frame with scripture on it. Cleaned out my vacuum cleaner, cleaned the baseboards in a couple of rooms and also cleaned some cabinets and drawers ... did I mention that it really really blessed me???
Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I will not get to see my mother, or my children. I did not send a Mother's Day card to my mother. I feel like a very thoughtless daughter. That is funny because I did not get a card from any of my children, but I don't think of THEM as thoughtless. I know they love me ... They will call me tomorrow and wish me a Happy Mother's day and I will call my mother and do the same.
My last day at my job was Friday. I have this week to wind up everything I need to do here at the house as far as cleaning and packing. I was really beginning to stress about everything I needed to do and did not see how I could possibly get it done and continue to work. I enjoyed my joy and the people that I worked with and most of the customers. But, I must admit that I am glad to not be working. I'll miss it - mostly THEM.
Well, that's my Saturday ramblings... just a short catch-up on my life for now. I'll get back into the bloggy world on a regular basis soon... I'll blog by the pool... I am having a hard time containing my excitement... meaning I CAN'T WAIT!
