Loving my life

We are blessed with four healthy children. Who could ask for more?

I should have recorded it...

It is so urgent to write when you feel things. Maybe it's just my limited skill as a writer, but I feel I can only write well when my emotions are strong. It's a real shame because there are events I'd like to record. Like when it finally sunk in that Janet was a girl.

What my mom told me. What my dad told me.

These memories by no means represent the wealth and depth of knowledge that my parents imparted on me. Just two snippets.

Today in my yard I saw violets blooming. As a sometime gardener and a lackadaisical weeder, I know full well that violets, though pretty in April, take up valuable lawn space and lead to weeds later in the year. Doesn't matter. I still love my violets.
