So there’s this boy. He kind of stole my heart. He calls me “Mom”  – Happy Birthday dear Michael . . . My son . . . I wish you to live content; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently; act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfullly, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never.  I wish you adventure on your journey and may you always stop to help someone along the way . . . Listen to your heart dear Michael and take risks carefully . . . . Remember how very much you are loved . . . I could not be more proud of you . . . I love you so much Michael and I celebrate the day you were born . . . Love, Mom

In Memory of sweet Cassie

IMGP3824IMGP2157IMGP4458IMGP3974 This blog is dedicated to my dog Cassie who passed away on the 30th of September 2014.  I have lost someone so dear . . . she was my constant companion.  Cassie has been pretty sick over the past six months and yesterday Kevon and I brought her to the vet . . . she was put to sleep.  I can’t stop crying . . . I am heartbroken.  Thank you God for blessing us with the eight years we had with her.  Please take care of her . . . I know I will see her again when we meet in heaven.
