My Birthday (yesterday)

I had a GREAT birthday!! Ron went way out for me this year. Not only did I get a wonderful card, but a dozen roses, delicious dinner at Olive Garden and then he bought me a new computer!! The laptop still works, just not as perky as it used to be. Now I've got a desktop that is amazing. He was so generous and sweet!!

Now to put my music and photos on it. This will be a great opportunity for me to really organize my stuff and not put any junk on it. Nice, clean and 250 Gigs of storage!! Whoo Hoo!!! My first Dell!!

Time to get ready to go watch the Grands. Tah for now!!

Ah, The Holidays

Now that the holidays are over, a calm has fallen over our homes. The children made out like bandits! It was a wonderful time. There is only one thing that would have made it absolutely complete - the rest of the family. I wish my son and his gal had been with us.
We are all scattered across the Western United States - Montana, New Mexico and Oregon. But the distance never stops the love! That reaches across all boundaries of time and space.

I hope everyone in my family knows the love I hold for them in my heart. Not being able to communicate with some of them causes a deep sadness and longing, but I know they are well and I wish them all the happiness and success in their careers and lives. (Yes, you, Dear Brother and Dear Dad).

May this new year bring peace, joy, prosperity and true love into your lives - family, friends and strangers. By loving more, we can all bring that about.
