Where has Time Gone.

Well My Little Girl is growing up right before my eyes, She is a big 6 year old, going into 1st grade. She was so excited and counted down the days to her big day for at least a week before. She asked me if I was working on her Birthday I think she thought it was a major Holiday (I guess to her it may seem like that) not so as you get older but that is fine with me.
I found myself days before her birthday flipping through pictures and recalling her birth 1st, 2nd , 3rd, 4th, 5th birthdays. Remembering my whole labor experience and It's so weird how you can re-live it over and over again.Wow has time flown by she continues to change each day and I see qualities in her that I hope she has far into her adulthood. She has such an expressive sole, I like to use that term better than calling her a drama queen she is so animated and I think girl lets get you into those acting classes, can't push that now after the recital disaster this year. Anyway she has a big heart she always wants to draw pictures for her friends and mail them, or she will see something in the store and think of someone who would like that.
For her Birthday she wanted to go to Friendly's (only after my coaxing) so we invited out Best Friends whom I like to refer to as the Creedon Clan. This would had been really Jacob's first restaurant experience around food that is Illegal. Well Amber was so nice at knowing what she should not have because she knew that he could not have it, She was cool with it and was more than happy to oblige to it. The waitress was numb and brought French fries and Jacob did spy a peak but they quickly disappeared and he was fine. When we went to Build a Bear she told the lady stuffing her bear that it was her birthday and that she went to Friendly's well she asked if she has ice cream and Amber told her " we did not because my friend Jacob is Allergic" the lady told her that she was a great friend for doing that for him. She smiled and I know that made her feel good, another lesson that I want Amber to have is to be giving of herself and I think she is on her way their. It was a great way to spend a birthday as a family and with our best friends whom I know that Amber can learn a lot of these lessons from. Happy Birthday to my Honey Bear, My Love, My Princess, My Drama Queen, My Dancer, Miss Dramatic and My Daughter, I love you more each day, you are the light in my life and add soo much to my life each day as I wake you or watch you sleep. Happy 6th Birthday Amber Lee

Remember the Ones Who Count

Life is too short to wake up with regre ts. So love the people who treat you right.. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

Rain Rain Go AWAY

Another Rainy Summer Day in Maine, Come on now what else would you expect, it's Maine where the weather changes in an instant, I have given up on listening to the meteorologist talk about a great day to be expected or chance of showers or well you get the picture and you know they are usually WRONG. That's OK we can all be wrong once or twice. Anyway I'm just a little sick of the rain. But you know we would complain if it was too HOT or too COLD or too WET or too much SNOW. We are just never happy. For me it's just how everything feels Damp and wet even though your inside. The fact that I have a boat sitting in my yard but can't go out on the Lake because our luck we would get thunder and lightning storm. Well I guess I might was well sit in the boat in the drive way and watch as the rain runs down my drive way washing it out while it runs onto the road and pretend I'm on the Lake. (maybe I could get up on skis then) Oh the poor dog I ponder each morning to the thought of do I leave him out for the day or do I keep him in the house, I think that he has been in every rainstorm this year. Oh well one less bath I have to give him.My daughter is bored nothing to do, next time she may as well play in the rain. What is it that attracts kids to Rain or Puddles but hate to have to take a bath but would rather play in a muddy hole filled with water, I'm stunned. I'm sure that when I was a kid I did the same thing. Well if we have to have rain then we may as well enjoy that we are here on earth to enjoy what ever weather mother natures tosses our way and next time your in the rain, take the time to dance in it, splash in a puddle or enjoy it because it's just one of those things in life RAIN.
