Internet Service

Just one of the many faces I love. Jada is 6 ........ going on 36. She is special to me. We just seem to connect on a different level than her sisters and I do. Don't know why, really. She is the one I didn't really get to meet as an infant, so it can't have anything to do with a bonding at a very young age. I don't love her any more than I love her sisters and I can't find words to describe what it is that makes her touch my heart the way she does.


Those eyes are tired. I can tell just at a glance what her little mood is ...... and she has lots of them. She is a talker and loves to share everything going on in her world. Smart as a whip and talented, too. I have told her just how pretty she is, so she must know. She tells me how much she loves me, too. One of my favorite memories is of her combing my hair and in a sing-song voice saying, "So soft, so pretty." I feel so fortunate to have this little girl in my life.




The internet is back up and running here in the kampground!! Finally, after almost three weeks of intermittent service. I will be able to comment!! I could read some of my favorite blogs, but couldn't comment. Sometimes I could comment and then I would get over-confidant and type in sage wisdom and wit, only to lose it before I could actually post it. I, no doubt, could have rid you all of your most pressing issues had those comments not been lost in the big void of unpublished comments!



Thanks to all of you for thinking of me as I went to see my friend, Paul. Kamp buddy Yvonne stepped in with her usual gusto and took care of the kampground today so that both of us could leave and go see him. Cancer is a horrible thing. We did get to talk to him and he recognized us. Patti is in pretty good spirits, all things considered. I think it will hit her hardest when he is actually gone. It was incredibly sad seeing our friend wasting away. I am glad that we were able to see him, though.


Now I am going to read ..............

Jada really is a cutie, and I think she's going to grow into a stunning young woman! I always had a special connection with my grandmother, too. She was such a special and sweet person! I was never a little girl at Grandma's house, I was able to help cook, clean, sew and allowed to sit at the table with the grown ups. She was undoubtedly the most special person in my life! Some people just click, there's no two ways about it!

I'm so glad you got to go see your friend. What a blessing that he knew you! Small blessings can mean so much.
You're right about Jada; she's a beauty. I love watching the moods cross the faces of my kids-they're so expressive when they are young.
Welcome back to the world of internet service!

Cancer is a horrible thing. I lost my mother in law to the monster. It is so hard to watch. On a happier note I'm glad your internet is back up.

Jada has such beautiful eyes and sometimes we just forms special bonds with a child or grandchild, I have it with my grandson Blain he is really a nannas boy and I have a special closeness towards my youngest daughter it is just what it is and should not be questioned but just enjoyed.

she is a beautiful child. i can see why you love her so much.

glad that you got to go see your friend. i'm sure that you all will treasure this visit. i remember when ron's best friend was battling cancer. i'd been telling ron that we needed to go; his friend had been on my mind for days. i was glad that we did.
