Thank You



To Lee Ann who doesn't just listen but hears me

To all of my friends who care and check in on me and leave words of encouragement

To Ashley who thought it was my birthday.  (March 20th; June 28th???)  Seriously, Ash, you can never get my birthday right but you try so hard.  And to wish me a very enthusiastic "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!" on such a gloomy, feel sorry for myself day made my birthday this year the best one yet.  It made my day.


To the sunshine.  For coming out just in the nick of time to remind me that life must go on


To my kiddos who love me and forgive me and have more patience with me than I deserve and always want to be with me whether I am crabby or not (I wouldn't want to be with me lately)
and distract me

I'm looking forward to seeing you, Amanda. I checked the schedule too and it says the Cincinnati one is May 15th and that it is in KY...??? That would be SO awesome to go, wouldn't it?

I love the picture you posted and your new spring colors on your blog. Bring on the sunshine!!!

Bring on the SUNSHINE!!!
It makes everything better...and so does a large chocolate milkshake...a big diet coke with good ice and a lemon...wedding cake does the trick for me...juju hearts, peeps (only for you), chocolate eggs, hmmmm what else??? The PURE joys of life - other than family and friends that is...
Hang in there!! (less than two months..ahhhh)

Could you share some of that sunshine with me. We have 5 inches of snow on the ground. Like I told you before, kids are the best, they are the most forgiving of all people. They love us no matter what, and they quickly forget our weaknesses. Enjoy this journey.

I would LOVE to get together in May. Let me know when you will be here. I am glad that the "sun" is shining, at least for today!

I'm all about the sunshine! It was snowing when I was driving home from work tonight so of course I had to listen to Christmas music because that always makes me happy! :) I love Jane's comments too, you can't help but smile!
