Tonight was perfect. The kids and Pat cooked a wonderful dinner and I was so happy to have my kids(teens and young adults) at the dinner table together. Yes I have become my Mother……all I want is my family together. I was given that gift tonight and I feel truly blessed.
Zoey, "Sorry Buddha but I do believe I have the best life just like Ferdinand remember The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf 'Once upon a time in Spain there was a little bull and his name was Ferdinand. All the other little bulls he lived with would run and jump and butt their heads together, but not Ferdinand. He liked to sit just quietly and smell the flowers. He had a favorite spot out in the pasture under a cork tree. It was his favorite tree and he would sit in its shade all day and smell the flowers.' Why else does Susan spend all her time in the garden but to give me more flowers to sniff."
