On this day 17 years ago, I became a mom to a beautiful baby boy. It remains one of the happiest days of my life. It has been a joy to me watching him grow up, even though it’s never been easy. My wish, my dream for my son is for him to always have a kind heart, strength of character, have compassion, to seek joy, to develop a strong love of God and to follow his dreams. I hope he always remembers that he is a blessing straight from God.
Happy Birthday Christian! I hope you enjoy your day! I love you!
My mother in law passed away on August 12th. She is now together again in Heaven with her husband, daughter and grandson (my stepson).
We have suffered such devastating loss this year, first with my Aunt, then Tyler and three months later, my mother in law. Last year, we lost two family members as well (my mom’s siblings). I saw this quote on Pinterest and just had to share it…because it’s nothing more than the truth.
My kids started school this week. I just want to know why school starts earlier and earlier every year? Everyone keeps saying that it’s because we are going to be going to the year-round school system, but I’ve been hearing that for the better part of a decade now. If they’re going to do it, then do it! I really hope they don’t…I just miss the days when school didn’t start back until late August or right after Labor Day.
I want to know why my daughter has a middle school dance EVERY Friday night? COME ON! I have better things to do than hang around every Friday, waiting to pick up my kid from some dance that she doesn’t need to be at anyway. Middle school dances should be banned. These kids are too boy/girl crazy anyway. I’m just sayin’!
I want to know why I’ve already seen Christmas mentioned several times and it’s not even September yet?!
I want to know when Facebook will stop changing?!
I want to know why Facebook is trying to imitate Pinterest? Seriously, if I wanted to see all the recipe posts, I’d go to Pinterest (and I love me some Pinterest)! It’s getting really old…just sayin’.
And why is it that we can never just have one problem at a time? No. We have to have several problems crop up at once. Like, why do we keep having tire problems on our car? Seriously, I would need three or four hands to count how many times we had a blow out or flat tire over the past year and half. Why won’t our lawn mower start? Why won’t my vacuum cleaner actually vacuum? Why is my washing machine acting funny?
Why does Comcast suck so bad? We pay around $200 a month for phone, internet and cable. When we first got it a little over a year ago, we were only paying $99 plus tax for all three. Then the price went up a few months later. Not only did the price go up, but they took some of our channels away. Then our voice mail didn’t work for two months. Then the price went up again. Then they took more channels away again. Then the price went up again. And now our internet and wifi is slow because…get this…they changed their internet programs, split them into two. And since I have the lowest priced one, we have nearly exceeded our usage meter, or some such bull poopy as that. Seriously? If we are paying $200 a month for your crap service, we shouldn’t be exceeding anything! So, we will be dropping the cable soon at the very least (thank God for Netflix and Hulu), and possibly going back to At&t.
And finally, why do those we love have to get sick and die? I know it’s part of life, and life isn’t always fair. But I am still left wondering….why? I’ve lost four family members over the past year and half, three of which were my mom’s siblings, the other my stepson. We have another family member that is ill. Why our family, and why so close together? I guess that’s a question I’ll have to ask God.
It’s just one of those
days weeks months years.
This too shall pass.
But seriously, if anyone has an answer to some of these questions or if you want to rant about something, I’m all ears. What are you tired of? Is there something you just want to know…why?!
