Happy New Year My Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday & I'm wishing that your New Year's will be filled with lots of love and blessings!!!
We had a very nice Christmas ourselves. We spent the day with new friends from South Africa & the children had so much fun! It's wonderful getting to know new people & learning about different cultures. I almost thought I would spend Christmas in bed because I was so sick but I came through it & actually had time to get my kiddos better....a Mom's work is never done! Our New Year's was very peaceful & quiet just the way we always like it. We're not into partying so we spent our time watching movies & just having a good time!
The last few days I've spent with my oldest son Reginald. He's now in the Navy & he left yesterday so I wanted to spend some real quality time with him. It didn't make it any easier to say So Long to my baby but we truly enjoyed each other's company these past weeks. I knew the day would come when he would leave home & venture out on his own and we've talked about this day for quite some time.....I guess I was hoping it would NEVER come however; we parted on very good terms & I'm looking forward to hearing from him in a couple of weeks. I've been trying very hard to not get depressed.....trying to put my focus somewhere else but I know that if I don't deal with how I'm feeling; I will slip into another depression.
I do have some classes that I need to be working on so I will be starting/finishing those projects to share with you very shortly. I'm going to ask that you keep my son in your prayers & myself as well. I'm not so worried about him being in danger; it's just a Mother's love for her child being out in the world for the first time. I'm hoping that every lesson we've ever taught him will stick in his mind & that he'll be smart about life in general. I'm going to work now after I dry my eyes.......thanks so much for stopping by today & reading my message. Take Care!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
