My mother’s hands

 are always working ~ are always busy: sharing, caring, loving. . . 

It all makes me wonder. . .

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?

This Little girl of mine

Lost a tooth
Cut her own hair 

and won’t take off this shirt until her brother comes home from college.

She wears it everywhere with everything. She says she needs to wear it to support her brother and  so he wont forget her. 

This college thing has been a tough adjustment for all us.  It’s a good thing he calls her often.

Floating New Year

New Years Eve Stevie Wonder and the gang set off floating lanterns instead of fireworks.

Floating lanterns seem fitting for us this year. 
We have so many changes coming up. Friday Matthew and I leave for Kansas. He will be going to college at Benedictine this year. Remember, I told you he wants to study philosophy? Benedictine is a 1000 miles from our home. 
I’m not at all worried about getting him there. I’m really looking forward to the drive. The thing that worries me the most is leaving the school without my little boy.  I keep on thinking: how do I just leave him there. . . 1000 miles from our home? 
 I keep telling myself – How can he set the world on fire if
his mom won’t let him? I can’t just keep him home forever. That wouldn’t be good
for anyone.  So we will be off – I may cry all the way home but, that’s okay to me –                      He’s ready to fly.
Oh! Yeah! Happy New Year Y’all!
