Catching up

I had every intention of writing a post to update what has been going on in my life. I decided to catch up with all of you first, and it has me feeling a little melancholy. I learned a lot in the last hour of reading all of your blogs (not the least of which is how long I have been gone):(. I did not post a comment on everyone's blogs, because I am currently being a slacker mom in front of my laptop, and it is Saturday, so the kids are raring to go. 
I just want to share how much I am moved by all the big and little things you are all willing to share about your lives and your hearts. In this busy world, we don't always have or take the time to walk in each others' shoes, and learn others viewpoints and ponder the human condition. While I wish I could do that with you all face to face or at least on the phone, my life is fuller and better for being able to learn from and share with you all. Thank you.

On another important note, my Goddaughter turned 17 yesterday. It is so bittersweet. Although I did not give birth to her, my family and I practically raised her, so she is like my 1st baby. She came home from the hospital to my house and basically never left. 5lbs, 5ozs of beautiful china doll. I still cry every time she has to go home. What a sap! For goodness sake, I am crying right now. Anyway, Happy birthday, angel baby. Mommy loves you.
