what can i say? i have a penchant for cheesy jokes!
i am riding this lull…the lull of no rushing.
except maybe to Mass yesterday. but a sunday without going to Mass would be like not breathing…can’t imagine anywhere else i’d rather rush to….
i am so thankful to God for getting us through this school year…for taking care of us…for healing….for miracles. the big ones. and even the not so big ones.
what can i say?
i am a noticer.
notice yourself…if you will…this picture…and how almost 18 years ago this girl was born…
about a hundred miles away from where we live now.
and i never would’ve imagined her place in my life…in our lives.
i am a firm believer in God’s infinite plan for each in every one of us.
i don’t question many things. when i am confused about something i simply ask for the grace to understand.
and if i can’t understand, then at least, i say, “give me the grace to accept.”
it’s as simple and as complicated as that.
so, yes…to answer jamie, she is my step-daughter.
but we prefer the term “half-daughter”.
it doesn’t sound cinderella cruel.
besides she belongs to my better half…and we are one!
i officially salute the grad…”you’ve come a long way, baby!”
and even though you will be leaving soon for college we’ve had a good year.
so many laughs. (and even some fights).
but it looks like you’re gonna be just fine.
and i am here if ya need me…i’ll be there in a hurry…you don’t have to worry…’cause baby there ain’t no mountain high enough….
(any similarities to the movie stepmom are purely coincidental!!!)
signing off for now.
i caught an itty bitty flu bug.
that’s what i get for faking sick!!!
