I sit here curled up with my cup of coffee in the early hours of this Sunday morning. This is nothing different, I'm an early riser and my family are NOT! I genuinely enjoy this quite time with just me and Kiki the dog
(no, Kiki you can NOT drink from my coffee cup!)
First up this morning I pull up bloglovin' and catch up on what all my favorite bloggers have been posting.
OH! that's right it's Mother's Day, "Need to call Mom, but it's still WAY too early".
You see, 16 years ago I was blessed to bring a baby girl home from the hospital ON MOTHER'S DAY SUNDAY.
On that Sunday afternoon I brought home this bundle (dressed in yellow gymboree) and
"I loved her, and cuddled her, and hugged her, and I called her George"
just kidding, I called her MADISON
and since that day "Mother's Day" has kinda taken a back seat to celebrating MADISON....
even when her birthday doesn't land ON that Sunday we usually end up celebrating on the weekend rather than on the weekday...and THAT is just perfect with me.
Then I go to link up with my favorite Sunday morning linky party at Cuddlebug Cuties....
hmmm nothing up yet. So, I swing by Sew Crafty Angel's and decide to link up with her everything
goes party from earlier in the week. THAT is where I discovered
After linking up there I went off to explore some of the other blogs and stumbled upon http://menopausalmother.blogspot.com/ I must say it was the title that made me visit,
but her May 10th blog entry "Stop All The Clocks" left me in tears and longing to reach out to
my mama, my sister, my dearest friends.....
well just EVERYONE that has touched my life & my heart and to
LET THEM KNOW just how very much the mean to me!
Still too early for phone calls so I came here to write up this post because all of you, my growing audience of blog followers.
I want YOU to know how much you mean to me.
This blog began as I was searching for "my next door in life" when my world fell out from under me
(ok, it was a chair....but it DID turn my world upside down and start me on a new path).
Today finds me with barely a foot in "that door" but I am slowly inching it open a bit more each day....
I can reach hand through and wave wildly....and I can peek through to the other side....
WOW! more "forks in the road".
