I can't believe it has been two months since I've written to my bloggy friends! I've been struggling with carpel tunnel syndrome for awhile now and trying to mend a broken heart at the same time.
You see, both my grown sons, 30 and 32, have moved across country from me and their dad. One was offered an incredible new job and the other was offered a promotion. I didn't expect both to move away within the same month of June. But it is all good and an indication that the economy is doing better. My heart is still breaking. Dan, my oldest, hugged me before he walked out the door and said, "Mom, a man has to follow opportunity!" He is right.
I was in a state of shock for awhile and my sister-in-law told me to "snap out of it!" So I went to Lowe's and bought a Moss Rose, or Portulaca Rose as we used to call them. It brings joy to my heart. When I was a child in hot, hot Texas, my mom had strawberry pots filled with Portulaca Rose and that was about all! The flowers were so beautiful! Thinking of them brings back happy memories of sitting in the sunshine as a child.
Prescription for a broken heart = remember something that made you happy and try to find it again!
Miss Natalie couldn't understand why I was taking pictures on the deck and not taking pictures of her! Here she is!
Have a wonderful day! I've missed you! Feels so good to be writing to you again!
