...I started my day with the feeling of a heavy heart.
This morning before work I visited a few of the blogs that I follow. Blog land is a such funny place, a place that is so real though many times it involves people or animals that you may never meet. Sometimes you rejoice and other times you mourn. Today I read about:
...a woman who lost her 12 year old son this week...(how could you not mourn and be heartbroken).
...and a beloved pet that passed...(how I empathize with this kind of loss).
...and this afternoon, I learned that a new friend (met through blogging) was feeling disappointed and sad regarding the future of a new baby goat.
The point is that these people, animals and pets are real. Through blogging, I have developed relationships that effect how I feel and how my heart reaches out to those hurting and rejoices with those that are happy.
So....I wanted to share something today that makes me smile and brings me great joy! Meet two of the MOST important women in my life: My Mother and Granddaughter!
These are two of the mainstays in my life (along with my two daughters and son, in case they are reading and get their feeling hurt that they weren't mentioned). My mother recently brought Sweet Pea up for a visit and what a time we had with her. At three she changes almost every day and both Papaw and I miss her terribly. Thanks, Mom!
A girl on a mission. (There is no audio on my camera but I think you can see by her body language that she RULES.)
Rejoice with me in the blessings of today and empathize with me in the sorrows of tomorrow.
And to my blogging friends, those that I've met; have yet to meet or may never see, please know that I care about you and appreciate being a part of the life you share through blogging!
Live simply, love fully and smile!!!!
