THE email I have dreaded sending...

Today at Church, Rusty's message seemed written just for me. It was about grattitude. I am gr8ful for a million things. Mostly for my little family. At the end of the message I was left with the urge to send an email that will either open or close a door for our future. One way or the other, I will have to accept what path God chooses for me. And one way or the other, I will have to move on. The dreams and hopes for my girlz and I are not clearly defined right now..By tomorrow or so, I will know.
I don't ask that you pray that God will give me what I want, but that I can accept what HE wants for our little family.
I have never dreaded sending an email like the one I sent today. I am a little sad and blue lately. Coming home from a paradise vacation is very hard. Tomorrow I go to school and start another year with my teammates. I have missed them..

It's A Charlie Brown Kind of Day...

We are riding out our last week in Florida. It's been another lovely, wonderful, awesome, delicious time. My dad has gotten to really "rotten up" my girlz, and I will be spending the next couple of weeks debriefing them and trying to explain that MOMMA doesn't jump for them like their grandpa does..
Our friends from home just left after a week. My girlz are sad to be here without constant playmates, so it's good that they visited at the end of our time here..
I am sadly dreading going back to school. This will be my 20th year. And my dear Margaret has gone onto bigger and better opportunities so I will be working with a brand new assistant.. We got an email about our schedules and it seems that our day has been planned for us down to the hour..Hmmm. After 20 years, you would think I would be able to manage creating my own daily schedule... But oh well, some people need that type of control over things.
And it seems that my HOA is charging me 900.oo because I didn't let them know when I replaced a light bulb on my lamp in my yard..Another "AAUGH" to deal with. Remember when Charlie Brown would tip his head backwards and yell because Lucy would yank the ball away when he went to kick it..Well, that's what I am doing alot of lately...Head tipping and Screaming!

We are leaving our little bit of paradise on Wednesday, and making the hellish drive back to DC...5 States and a million hours...
insert "Aaugh" here.

Whadya Do...

When you've got no Plan B?
I mean really. When there is nothing on the back burner?

I know God will open and close the appropriate doors. But I wish I knew a little in advance where I will be in a year.
I know where I wish I was, but is it really All About What I Want??

Something to think about...

For Now...

I get asked by my family and friends "Why do you want to go to Russia?"
I am working on a more comprehensive post about this..Maybe by the summer's end I will post it. It is so much more than as the clip states..But it's a start!

The Goodbye Girl

What it is about a child that is devastated when she says goodbye? What does that mean?
Too Sensitive?

I don't know what it is about Anna that when she says goodbye to a family member or close family friend, her little heart breaks. She has always been so empathetic, but it is sad to see her little tears fall when we bid a fond fair well to those who we have visited this summer.

Any ideas on how to heal her broken heart? My sister is leaving today and we will see her when we come home in a few weeks...

At the end of a wonderful birthday, I had to post this and share what it's like on a GreenGirlz day!!

My Birthday in Naples. A Happy 42nd to ME!!

It's sandy bubble blowing.

It's feathers, that make us thing of Aunt Lee,
Little girlz walking and singing together.

silvery toes, feeling the water beneath them...
