road trip...

Daughter and I head out to take her to school tomorrow. I am dropping her off, and then having myself a girls' weekend!

I am so looking forward to hugging my daughter and wishing her the best as she starts off on her new adventure...and then having a little down time with a dear friend. I am ready to enjoy all the good that is in this next phase of life...the phase where I watch my children make their own dreams come true, and become the people I know they can be.

Thanks to all who offered prayers on behalf of my husband and everyone involved in the DNC. Hubby called it the "most boring week ever" which was music to my ears.

I tell hubby, boring is good... he doesn't always agree...

My "baby" is in college this year, though he chose local scholarships. It's hard to believe how fast my kids growing up years went... and it's been harder to be the mother of adult children at time than I imagined but there is a great deal of joy in seeing your kids make good choices... so you take the bitter with the sweet at all stages of life...

Families are a wonderful blessing...
