Sasquatch... and other miracles...

As the kids and Pop watch yet another episode of "Finding Bigfoot", 
I secretly realize that I have seen one of these creatures up close and personal. 
As a matter of a fact, it happened not so long ago. 
Although at the time the circumstances were pretty intense, 
everyone involved was calm.

As I recollect, it was over the Christmas holidays, 
on a Thursday afternoon at 2:45pm exactly. 
Everyone was plumb tuckered out from a pretty long night, 
but I remember it as if it were yesterday. 
Poised beside my daughter, I looked up to see... 
my newest grandson enter the world at 10 lb 9 oz. and 23 inches long! 

He was then and is now, if I do say so myself, 

Congratulations to the newlyweds, 
as I continue to call them, despite their five year marriage. 
Life will never again be planned and perfect. 
No, instead it will be much, much better. 
It will be messy, fun and surprising! 

For with the birth of a child comes the sweet joy of seeing the world again as if it is new...

Welcome, little big man; 
your presence brings a new sweetness to our grown up world! 
May God bless you always.

Warning: Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder...

A colleague sent this to me a while back. 
It was uncanny the resemblance this vingette bore to my thought processes and life.
Age activated attention deficit disorder...
this is serious folks!

Letting the cat out of the bag...

Please forgive Mops who has been remiss in posting for quite some time!

 Turns out my first year of teaching nursing has been consuming to say the least ... 

It has also been inspiring, fun, enlightening, and arduous.

 But most and best of all, this year has been fulfilling. 

this is good. 

Above is a picture of 'kitty' Lavender cuddled in one of my purses. 

I guess I best get started letting the cat out of the bag...
