Happy Dance

Yesterday I tried very hard to do the Happy Dance.  I had good reason to join hubby as he came through the front door.  He proceeded to do his version of the Happy Dance and I let him lead me around the room.  I simply laughed and slid my feet across the floor, enjoying the silliness.  We’re not even dancers….at all :)

Image SEO IMG_0825

But, we had a very good reason to rejoice!  Our out-of-state home, that has been for sale for over a year, closed yesterday!!!!  We’re beyond excited and thrilled!  Can you tell we’re happy?  I didn’t take any pictures of our happy dance, because it would be a little too embarrassing.  And, my toe was hurting too bad to really join in the dance.

Image SEO lisa and david IMG_20140214_132957we celebrated at Red Lobster

The spring weather has turned very cold here and my toe joint has decided to be extremely painful.  Walking is almost impossible, so I just limp along.  It will probably be better when the weather improves.  It’s just one of those Ehlers Danlos annoyances.  But, I’m dancing in my mind :)

Watching Them Grow Up

Time….it flies by and I just need to catch my breath!  This past week has been a blur of activity…full of thoughtful moments that I wasn’t expecting.  On this rainy day, I want to just remember those moments and how special they were.

My youngest is a high school senior, and because he and I aren’t terribly sentimental, we weren’t expecting a lot of emotional experiences.  He had scheduled his college class registration and senior pictures on the same day.  I knew it would be busy, but I didn’t think about what a great experience it would be for me.  As we waited to meet his adviser, I prayed that he would have an experienced and patient veteran who would spend quality time with him.  This prayer was certainly answered, and the session was remarkable!  He met the lady and gained her favor quickly.  She seemed to understand his personality and needs.  She spent an hour with us and helped him to sign up for a great load of classes; spaced out nicely for a green freshman :)

Image SEO IMG_1443

Next, the senior portrait session was also terrific.  The photographer spent almost two hours getting the best shots.  As I was able to listen to the conversations in the waiting area, I was so impressed with my son’s maturity.  I know mom’s always brag about their kids, but sometimes things just hit you all at once… they’re really growing up!  Hearing him speak of his faith and owning his beliefs was super to hear.  My heart was blessed to be a Mom that day :)

He’ll soon be getting his license and graduating and so many more things.  Moms live such a wonderful life.  It has such ups and downs.  If you’re like me, with a chronic illness, life is more complicated.  Life for your kids is also more complicated.  In the life of my kids, I think it has made them better people.  They have to think of someone else every once in a while.  That’s a good thing, isn’t it?
