Time seems to go faster with each passing year. Every year I want time to slow down. However 2014 can not be over soon enough! Is it possible that my tears will wash it away faster?
This year will bring many changes to our lives as individuals and as a family.
Jan 1st-We need to postpone the building of the shop and Re build the barn (collapsed due to ice and snow) and repair the other roofs damaged by the last snow storm.
Jan 4th-Our youngest daughters bridal shower-Happy time! A day to be remembered-- It also brings many emotions for it was this date 1994 that my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and we would loose her in just 5 short months--What brought that crashing back down? I went to "unearth" (a word my Granny used for things that hadn't been seen but weren't forgotten) the Cake plate that belonged to MY Great-Grandmother for the bridal shower cake- It has been packed away since we moved to the Midwest in 1994 -but not forgotten!
-What do I find packed with it- designated "wedding gifts for our daughters " from My mom (they were only 5-8 years old when she passed) WOW emotion over load.
Jan 5th- Our oldest daughter leaves for a Mission Trip out of the USA for 11 months! She will be in 11 different countries over the eleven months. I have very mixed emotions about the trip for many reasons -Not sure how I will come to grips with her being so far away with so little means of communication.
March will be here before we know it (I hope) Kennel Continuing Education Seminars for the latest updates, regulations and NEW rules.
March 15th our youngest daughters Wedding- Will be a Happy day, but we will be missing a piece of our Family puzzle.
