My high school reunion is this year my 40th. I am going to do a poster and put everyones picture from graduation on it. In the middle I will do a tribute to the 3 people we have lost from the class in tribute. I think this poster will be a great reminder to all. My way of contributing to the event.
It is amazing how long it can take to do one page in scrapbooking. It can be a very long time very time consuming, plus it takes a lot of extras to be pulled out to use with it. I do not have a lot of room in my little apartment here so I have not figured out how to organize it all to do it the right way. Once I get it out I do not want to put the stuff away. I love to do it though it is very relaxing. Wish I was as good as my DIL at making pages, she sells hers on Ebay she is so good, people order them from her. They send the pictures she shows the the different layouts and she makes it like very fast she is so artistic. It takes me a while to be satisfied with one page.
I know I need more positive in my life thanks for reminded me I need the positive affirmations daily.
I actually put a note on Chris D. page and asked him to read my blog wonder if he will? Would be nice if he gave me positive feedback.
It is going to rain here today. I am so glad I went for a nice walk outside yesterday. I took tons of pictures to share. I hope to put them on tonight or tomorrow on my page to share. I promised you a picture of the water and the bridge here to Canada. Plus the lilacs are just great here now one of my favorite and they will be gone in a week now.
I took another step friends, I am going back to church on Sunday. I know a lady in the building who is a Christian like me and asked her if I could go with her on Sunday she said sure.
Pray that this church will be a good one for me I need to heal spiritually also. I miss my old church in Palm Springs so much, there is no other church that seems to measure up to it. It was a real family church to me when I lived there all alone for 9 years. It would really help me if I felt the love in this church here too.
Hope you all have a great day. I am going out to visit with my older sister. She is the one who does not speak to our Mom, she cannot forgive her for the past. It is so wrong to treat your Mom this way, no matter what she did. She is the only Mom we will ever have. I know my Mom had it rough too. She watched her own Mom die in front of her at the age of 4, while she was in labor for her younger sister, who did live by the way. Then at age 12 she was raped. So no wonder my Mom drank years ago when we all were young. Plus she has 12 kids and had 4 husbands. What a life she has had so far, at almost 88 . She has her birthday the day before me Dec 20, mine is the 21. She is 5 foot and 120 pounds. very small lady. Oh well that is my Mom. She has her issues just like I do. She tries my patience just like many of you have with family. etc. I forget and forgive very quickly not in my nature to hold a grudge for years like the other siblings do.
Too sad to have had 12, two are dead now one my full brother who died in car accident at 23. The other an older half brother, who had incest with me when he was a teen and me at the age of 4. he is gone too of cancer. So 10 are left and the 4 kids from my Dad are the ones who talk to her most, but I am the only one who lives in same building with her. The other 3 are in different states.
Oh good news I became a great aunt yesterday the youngest boy of the 12, his DIL had a little boy yesterday it is his second, Eli they named him and he has a brother Gabe. Bill my brother is a great Grand dad. He lives in RI. He is happy with the news. I actually talked to him last night which is rare. The brothers ignore me for some reason. Not like me and my sister Sue we talk at least twice a day and she is in NV. we are close for sure. Thank the Lord for her in my life. She is a great support. But she has a hubby and is across the country. I love Skype we talk that way a lot really cool.
Sharing a lot am I not? You are my family, not many other people I share with. I do not want to be a burden to others for sure, here if you read it is ok, , if you do not I will never know and not be hurt by it. Kind of a safe way to share. Ever realize this?
Have a good day friends. You are special in my life.
