Just Happy


The desert air was crisp and cold on my morning walk, reminding me of the early years with the Brawny Man and skiing.   As I breathed in, the memories were so vivid, I could almost feel my braids blowing in the wind.  Flashback to 1980, Purgatory, Colorado.  Upon arriving home, I immediately pulled a scrapbook off the bookshelf and began turning the pages until I found our first ski trip.  I like the fact that I wrote this quote on the page:

“How kind you were to open the Gates of Heaven and give me that little glimpse of heaven.”  (from an 18th century letter)

scan0003I am in love with God, life, blue skies, new generations, and my current station in life. 

And my Brawny Man.

May you be blessed with Great Love today.

I love it, Deb!!! Wow, in 1980, I was 28 years old and a young mother of two...it seems like yesterday!! My two became 3 and they are now, 34, 32 and 25, plus, 4 grandsons from the 32 year old...10,8,6, and 18 months!!!

Through them, you will live on, just as those who have gone before us, live on. Our conversation on Christmas Eve turned to memories about my Pop...we laughed till we cried!! Sweetly, sadly happy!!

Have a wonderful New Years and looking forward to a exceptional 2011!!
