Hope all of my sweet friends in Blogland have a wonderful and safe Easter weekend. Hunt some eggs, sneak some chocolate, hug a family member, and if you're so inclined, attend a joyous Easter service.
A quick family update: My family is getting together Saturday evening to celebrate all of our April birthdays: my son's was the 7th, my sister's is the 16th, and mine is the 12th. Sis and I have been sharing birthdays for 40 years, ever since God heard my prayer for "a little brother or sister, just something that breathes." I was a lonely only child those first six years!
Unfortunately Baby Girl won't be able to come home for the festivities; she's stuck working at her college dorm for the holiday weekend. We won't be seeing her until Graduation Day in May; we'll drive to Chapel Hill to cry as she accepts her diploma, then we'll be packing her up and bringing her home. It'll be a short visit...she leaves two weeks later for her internship at Disney World in Orlando. *sob*
The plans continue for my son's wedding (which is right before Baby Girl leaves for Orlando). The next six weeks will be a whirlwind for our family as final details for the festivities are hammered out. These milestones in both my babies' lives have me a bit emotional these days...you mamas understand.
When I get a little down about how quickly the years have flown by with my children, I have to give myself a little mental shake to remind myself that the future holds many more milestones and special moments. And hopefully (someday)...grandchildren!
