Mothers' Day

I started my day with breakfast and then going to church, where the sermon was "Mothers and Other Mythological Creatures."

I had the modern day communication with both my children--text messages.  I was happy to hear from them.

I had a phone call from my sister who was having a train wreck of a day, entire weekend, I am not really sure exactly how long a time period.  I was saddened to hear the events that she must endure.

I love this--
In honor of nurturer's everywhere.

I went out to dinner with fourteen other people from the neighborhood.  I was the fifteenth wheel, but it didn't matter.  I stimulated a lot of conversation about who I could be fixed up with. (Maybe it is a good thing I am heading back north tomorrow. But I do have wonderful friends.)

After dinner eleven of us went across the road to the beach to listen to the drum down and watch the sunset.

Just another day in paradise.
It seemed fitting.


My take away--I have a blessed life.  And I am reading to invite in a new love.  (Universe take note, please.)

  2. You seem to have done an excellent job making a new life for yourself after the unexpected death of your husband. Good for you, I admire you for that. Your Florida life seems very fulfilling and now you'll be going back to Vermont to fill up on family and home for a while.

  6. You have really made a nice life for yourself in Fl and found some fine friends to spend fun time with. Some people crawl inside when wounded, you have reached out. Well done Olga.

  11. I have few friends. Happy for you, though. I'm happy by my pond. I am going out to a painting session tonight. I hope I last. Just not good with people these days!
