I am happy for you Luvs!

I agree with GOAMK!

But my lastest smile came today when I put on a new skirt and top to go to church and my wonderful hubby told me I looked beautiful! After weeks of looking like the blimp with fluid, I finally felt beautiful!

Going to the zoo Saturday with wife and kids, then coming home and grilling pork tenderloin! This was the best day!

Well, you need to just forget that thinking and let us give you hugs and show you we care. So just stop it right now.

My next door neighbour's granddaughter, who is 5, came for a visit after supper yesterday. She does this quite often and it is always a delight.

This time she went into the back yard, which DH hasn't gotten to because of the kitchen renos and job change, and came in with some "flowers" for me - dandelions, some white weeds and some of my early chives for greenery. Then she wanted me to put them in the "pretty vase" a red cranberry glass antique I bought for my Mom when I was 7 at a rummage sale. I did as told and then when she left took the flowers back outside and washed the chives and laid them for drying. She played with the dogs as usual, and asked if she could change their names because she liked hers better. I told her that sure, she could but they probably wouldn't come to them.....they did! After an hour, she finally said it was time to go.

I may not have my own children or grandchildren but I am so blessed that others feel so comfortable with me....it is mutual. I am still smiling.
