Beginning a new Season in more ways than one!

Wow, it's been busy, weddings, graduations, this is the time of year. Only three more weeks and my youngest, will be done with her Jr. year in High School. My baby will be a Sr. this Fall. My son who is in the U.S. Marines stationed in Cherry Point, N.C. visited us this past Memorial Day weekend. It was a short visit but a good one. We are blessed our son is serving in the USA, he does have buddies who go over to the Middle East, and our hearts and prayers are with them and their families. My oldest well we are darn proud of her too going to U-MASS studying to be a dentist. (She will be a student for some time):) All this to say more reason for me to get busy with my life. What am I going to do now with my life with child rearing years done? Most women come to this cross road in their lives. Let's say I am discovering new things about myself and the old ideas and dreams are resurfacing. It's exciting. Spending time on what I like to do,( venture into antique stores, going to yard sales, picking up "junk" on the side of the road and having the ol creative juices going). Of course I'm still MOM but in a different way. I do miss the younger years of my children but I am an enjoying this new season in my life too.

Friday, May 2, 2008's May!!!

Well , we all remember and sung the ol sing-song "April showers bring May flowers".... um.. it's really January, February, March , April, May, June, July ect.....bring May flowers. It rains now all year long. When I was little in the 60's, and 70's it did not rain in the winter. It just did not. Even this winter we had thunder and lightning, remember? Just the same New England has changed into Spring. The pinks, and purples, and yellows are so welcomed. The red and yellow tulips are so beautiful. There are the trees that bloom each year but I am so glad folks still take the time to plant bulbs months before to enjoy them now in their splendor. Home owners plant for them to (beautify their yards), but we enjoy the blooms too passing by, looking at the flowers when we should be watching the road. That's ok, we've trained ourselves to do this each year! People, enjoy this Spring! Blessings to you.....Karen
