love you all!
little did i know that i would meet her in dallas at the scrapfest... that Woman was HILLARIOUS. we contected and on tehe last night there, she stayed up til the wee hours of the morning, just talking and laughing the night away....
i just knew i would have to see this lady again....well, i had my chance, the girls in california held a crop and we were on our way to sunny california...WOW! who would travel that far for less then 48 hours? me!
i have never laughed so hard in my life...Cheri also took time away from the crop to take me to the Folsum prison and get lauren a shirt..what a great deal that meant to me...and we both thought johnny did do time there...*giggle*
with strong connections, not only with cheri, but a few other ladies, we have this yearly swap... we like to call it Thriftmas. we hold this swap at the end of january and draw names. it's a friendship i hold dear with these special ladies in my life...
so , i drew kristin's name and sent her a taste of louisiana....i would love to see Ron with his hat on..lol and cheri drew my name...you see cheri has had on hell of a year so far with her family and sickness, i completly understand that.
yesterday i get home and fred put this huge box on the counter in the kitchen....what a surprise! it's from cheri.....i tear into it like a 4 year old on christmas morning....i read the card and the card said there wa a birthday present in there too....oh! boy!
so opened another card and it said to enjoy this with lauren... now i know cheri's humor, i was expecting something funny and silly....BUT, i cried my eyes out....this gift touched my heart.
i really love you cheri pryor... i will nevershare this with lauren with out thinking of you each time i see it....
thank you my friend....
i am getting a tad sappy and emotional... mother's day has a beautiful meaning to me.
2001: i had just found out about the cancer and Fred and i went to Sam Houston state park to visit with his family...my dad and brother show up...big surprise for me...just thinking about that day makes me weepy, i did not know they were coming. very special moment for me...to know my dad came from Houston to spend that time with me when i was at my lowest...
then November 21,2001: the birth of my one and only daughter. to think that in the months prior, i did not know if i was going to be able to share her birthday with her, to see her born.
so to all you mothers and pre-mothers out there, happy early mothers day.
regardless if you get a card or jewelry or something crazy, just remember that you got something when you became a mother, you got a very special gift, the gift of love.
i am so bored at work, the phone doesn't ring, no one comes by for estimates any more...i hate this economy....and why is gas going back up????
this weekend we had two birthday parties that lauren was invited too, we were only able to attend one, due to the fact that both parties were at the same time and across town.so we attended erica's birthday party. she is in to tinker bell and we got her a trunk full of tinkerbell dress up clothes! she loved it.
i am engrossed in another book...stacie and lori both raved about it, yet neither one of them has finished the book....i started it this morning and will FINISH it this week.
the time has come! on wednesday i drive to get my buddy heather from lafayette airport. totally excited about meeting her and enjoying the company.....then friday we go get cassa-undra and lesle will be in friday night! it's going to be a great week for me!
the shack by: william p. young. it's very good right now....
