It was Charlee's 3rd Birthday yesterday--
She is the wee girl on the Left in the picture---
Here she is with some of her cousins.
Charlee is our youngest Grand child---a miracle child ---born of parents well into their 40's.
She has had several trips to Sick Kids in Toronto, to correct minor problems, and now is thriving--
This is her Mom and Dad in the middle---(Son#1 the restaurant owner)--with son#3 and son#4 on both sides of them.
It was a wonderful party--- quiet--(I like quiet!)---not too many guests--just family---
I enjoyed it immensely!
Of course I left before the cake---and the unwrapping of the gifts-
I drove back home in the dark, on a snow covered highway, happy to have been a part of this child's life.
To-day we have a freezing rain warning--with 10-20 cm of snow predicted to fall--
Himself took to-day off work---so------my plans of sorting receipts will commence to-morrow , me thinks---He is still eating breakfast---a meal which began at 7am and is still under way--
You see, son#3 and son#4 --plus their families, will be departing to some hot island in the Carribean, someday soon, so they have been calling their Dad (a Doctor)-to order meds for this and that---then there were calls to his clinic---then the pharmacy---
Lord love a Duck eh!
-Daughter called also to ask about the Birthday--
-Son #2 the Air Canada Pilot had a few calls in there too, to ask about the weather here and the Birthday--
You know, there ARE days it might be nice to be able to jump into a hole and pull that hole in after me----never a dull moment in the ol' homestead!
Spark up a storm to-day---
Believe in yourself----
Never ever stop trying----because we CAN become healthy---
It takes time---!
oh-----and enjoy Birthdays!
