A journey

What's that saying Life is a Journey. Well my life has been one that I wouldn't trade the past as it's what made me who I am today.

I think back over the years and there are many people that influenced me in one way or another. There aren't many however that have known me for my entire life like two people. My BFF Diana and her mom Mrs. P.  Now Diana has been my BFF since day one.

We grew up on the same street, 2 houses between us and though we were in different school systems we spent most of our time together.  We skated together, we entered Brownies and Girl Guides together, we would bike to get a slurpee, and sometimes we even liked the same boy at the same time. Her parents would take me camping with them, my family (well mostly my brothers would tease her like a little sister). And that is what she is to me a sister. Her mom Mrs. P is my 2nd mom and always made me feel part of her family. Since the late 1980's Mrs. P has has fought one illness or another and there were times when doctors told the family to prepare themselves for the worst but she always fought back. According to the doctors she shouldn't have lived the life she did. But she fought each illness with zest and gumption until this past Wednesday where I truly believe that she decided enough was enough and waited for Diana to be with her and then went to meet Mr. P. I think he decided he needed dinner made or a shirt ironed! ;) But now after a long wait they are again together.

Mrs. P you will always be a huge part of my life and I treasure every moment. You taught me to give it your all and not give up. And best of all you gave me a best friend that means the world to me.

You will be deeply missed but will always have a place in our hearts.

We now return to your regular scheduled program

Despite the fact I can barely walk this evening 2011 is starting off great. It's time to put it all in order. Today was a day to start that. Time off in cold weather makes us a little lazy.  School went back today and my wonderful son got back to his regular programming. He needs structure and so do I. We both said it would be a great day and it turned out to be a fantastic day for us both. I got to shop today for some organization for our home (would have been even better if Jill could have joined me but she needed to be home with her son who was under the weather) and then Marcus came home happy and said he had a great day, played with his Lego (plus Mom bought him some more on her visit to the Lego store, as you can't pass up a sale) and he even let me control the remote for the TV!

Today was definitely a day of JOY and I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Think good thoughts. Speak good words. Take good actions. Three steps that will bring more to you than you can ever imagine.
