So I had this post in my head for Virtual Coffee today. In it I was going to list all the dumb stuff I did as a teenager. Then I realized I'll have a teen on my hands in about 7 months. I don't want to remember being a dumb teenager. Besides I thought of this Pin from last night:
Isn't that wonderfully true? I need to stay present. Content in this time in life. But memories live on..........
I had my coffee hours ago.Now I'm feasting on my Green tea latte. Sooo yummy! and I drink it from my cool cup that Josie bought me. Today I would tell you my heart is heavy. My cousin's cousin passed away. I didn't know him very well but we had mutual family and attend the same church. He's just my age. It's a sad thing when some one your own age passes away. This takes my mind to losing my cousin Scottie at only 32 a few years back and of course my sister.
Really no matter what my sister is always on my mind. I could be thinking of something simple like grocery shopping and I would think of grocery shopping with her. Or the time we were desperate and fashioned a diaper out a plastic bag,a maxi pad and duct tape. McGyver would have been proud! I wish she was here with me to laugh about that. I chuckle at the thought. Manda,I miss you so much! No need for duct tape huggies in Heaven but maybe we'll make one again some day. Just for fun. <3
I'm hoping to go see The Avett Brothers in May. I have no one to see them with. I don't know anyone 'in real life' who likes them. This takes me back to the summer of '99. I was very pregnant with Emma and I really wanted to see Hole. Nobody wanted to go with the pregnant chick. I'd put a damper on the fun.But Manda went with me.It was fun.She wasn't afraid to be seen with me and my big belly.........
I have a
Thanks for listening to me. !!
