Fabulous Friday (on Saturday)!

Sometimes LIFE just gets in the way… SORRY I am LATE!!

Five things that made my week FABULOUS…

Life . . . in general!

OK, after a week that has included a Celebration of Life for a childhood friend, another friend in the hospital and facing a terminal illness, an uncle in the hospital and the loss of a dear friends father, I have my own mortality on my mind. 1111_230[1]I am blessed beyond words… I get to see my oldest daughter get married, I am watching my youngest grow into a young woman, John is here healthy and strong, I still have my parents and I have the best friends on the planet!! Things here have come into perspective for me, a glaringly clear perspective!

So, when my time comes and people are remembering me, I have come to the conclusion that I want to be remembered for having made people laugh!! Yep, that's it... I want to have made people smile and have a little giggle, that's my wish!

Julie’s First Concert!

FUN, FUN, FUN…Foster The PeopleWednesday night my friend Julie FINALLY attended her FIRST CONCERT!! Britt and Ryan were there too, it was outdoors at McMenamins Edgefield and it was HOT!! We saw , and !! AWESOME concert, we had SO MUCH FUN!!

Brooke’s Room is Done!

PAINTING DONE…Brooke's Room DONE!My niece, Brooke’s room is all painted… a shade I am calling CREAMSICLE!!

A Day at the Park!

RELAXATION…Oxbow ParkOn Thursday, John, Kate, Brooke and I drove out to Oxbow Park. John did some fishing and Kate did some picture taking… I just RELAXED… AHHH, it was NICE!!

Some Wise Words!

And some WISE words that really made sense to me this week…

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.”
― Maya Angelou
