HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! and cancer....

Happy Mothers day girls! whats everyone doing tomorrow? We havent made any real plans. I'm assuming we'll cook on the grill, or go out. I'd rather eat at home truthfully, I like our own cooking! Little tony came home from Ithaca for the weekend.. Hes really been the only one around. Jennifer is working for the Thomas the tank people as their MC, as thomas the tank is visiting Medina this weekend and next weekend. She has worked for them every year when they come. she was home for a few minutes tonight but left to go to a party. Robert left when I got home on Friday to go to Morrisville to stay with a friend, whose mother was just diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. that person is a very close friend of mine. In fact, we're supposed to be going on vacation together this summer with 4 other girls. right now that plan is on hold and not important. My friend is talking about having a mastectomy. so sad.
We just had another friend diagnosed with lymphomia (cant spell) also. in fact he is the person who introduced tony and I! I dont like this getting older crap.. It suddenly seems that we're closer to being old then to being young! and having friends with serious health problems.. sucks.

so what did I do today? i attended a wedding shower this afternoon for my neighbor.. who we've watched grow up since she was 4. she is getting married in June. One of the girls on the other side of us is also getting married.. next weekend! I cant even imagine my kids getting married!

Well miniature swappers. How did everyone do? Did everyone get their pieces mailed out? Ive got a bunch of pictures ready to post. but I really want to wait til I hear from everyone. Please be sure to mail me pictures! I cant wait to see everyones work! so far everything I've seen is wonderful!! I hope everyone had fun.
I do have a plan for the next swap, but I'm not ready to start sign ups yet.. I'll post it in a couple weeks. this time its not a doll or bear.. though in a sense it could be.. something a little different this time.
well all, Ive got a little head ache.. I think I will go get some water and clean up the kitchen from dinner!

Cancer has been a major topic around my house (and blog) the last month. Sadly. Keeping your friends in my prayers. And I adore you orphaned birds. PRECIOUS!!!

How true that some of this growing older stuff is "for the birds". But as I watch the video of your daughter singing in the car and I hear your laughter, it is clear that you do so appreciate all the moments which make life so precious.

Each day is such an amazing gift.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog today :-)

Belated Happy Mother's Day

Blessings... *Linda*
