I'm having a hard day....
I work with all teenagers on the weekend... the sweetest girls....
A couple of them found me crying back in my bakery today and gave me a hug.
LOL, I have almost 20 years on some of them and I should be the crying shoulder not them!!

SQ- a shoulder to cry on is just that, I don't think age matters. It just shows they care about you. As do we all. I'm sorry your having a hard day. I hope it gets better.

Today was my first day back at church in about 2 months. It was so good seeing everyone again; however my big smile came when I spotted one of my "kids" who hasn't seen me in a long time (sad story about a split marriage and the mother moving away with the kids for spite, Dad gets them whenever she feels like driving them down).

Anyway, the girl, who is 8, was hugging everyone in site and then saw me and wrapped her arms around me as tight as she could. The she suddenly stepped back hesitantly. She said "oh, Laurie I didn't hurt you did I?" Of course she didn't so she hugged me again. Then she said that she was glad I didn't have that awful walker any more and that my cane looked just like her Grandma's. The she told me her Grandpa had a magic cane that he just has to wave and it extends out and when he pushes a button it goes back to small. I told her my cane didn't so anything fancy, it just helps me walk. She said "well, I guess that's a good thing!", hugged me again and went off to her next hug recipient.

That is enough smiles to last me the week!

Aww, Laurie, that is just too precious. Younger kids can be the sweetest, can't they??


My smile came from a pic I received in my email from my cuz, momloves2cook, of my boy dressed up for work in dress pants, shirt and a TIE!!! hehe Beautiful tie and shirt too. I'm very impressed with him!

Just went out onto the front porch to "stash" what was left of the outside kitties' dinner. Have to hide it from the raccoons.

When I opened the door, Tumble was playing his butt off chasing something. I thought at first it was a mouse, but didn't see any movement from the object Tumble was fascinated with.

Put the food in the "safe" and started back into the house. Tumble still playing to beat the band. Turns our he was torturing an acorn and was having a ball! Made me laugh out loud.

Oh, Katie, that is hilarious! Cats can find the funniest things interesting and the things we figure they would like they don't give a second glance to!

My friend John recently got out of the hospital and today was his 89th birthday. As his children are all out of town, my friend Debbie and I had dinner with him and celebrated his birthday at Judson because we didn't want him to be all alone. And, he had another surprise, May Kay showed up, too! He was thrilled to be in the company of three younger women and I brought a birthday cake and we had presents for him. We just couldn't let his day go by without making it special. The waiter saw him with three much younger women and told him that when he got old, he wanted to be like John. We took pictures and had a wonderful time.

And I have been smiling ever since.
