While, I realize that some of you have already posted this, uhm… I’m a little late. BUT, better late than never.
We kind of started a new “tradition” last night. In a way though it’s an old tradition for the Electrician and I. We NEVER go out for New Year‘s. Don’t get me wrong, we used to, until the one year, I had cooked some appetizer and we headed over to a friend’s house. As we knocked on the door, I dropped off the appetizer, looked at the Electrician and said barely “home” before it hit both of us. That year, we both spent time bowing to the porcelain goddess, without the benefit of drinking anything other than water. It’s a really good thing we have 2 bathrooms. Since that year, we have always spent New Year’s eve at home.
Last night, we had company, and shared our New Year’s eve with the Nurse, and Fisher dude and Cam-man. The adults played cards, while Cam-man learned, and also over indulged with several things. Chocolate Milk was Cam’s drink of choice, and chips and dip, with some chex mix thrown in for good measure.
Fun was had by all, and I believe Cam-Man liked the fact that Papa and Meemaw’s couch is a “transformer” and opens up into a bed, with cushion steps onto it. When the ball dropped, we all hugged and said ”Happy New Year“. The kids packed up and did the 5 minute drive home, and then the Electrician and I played some music and danced all over the place.
My phone did ring this morning at o’ dark thirty, with Happy New Year tidings from the Electrician’s parents. I barely remember the phone call. When the alarm did go off, I got up and went to the Farmer’s.
The day has passed quickly, and I have figured out, I am not as young as I used to be, simply because my happy butt is tired.
So, with all that being said, I am taking myself to bed, EARLY. Night y’all….Hope all your New Year, holds Blessings, laughter, family and love. Do something fun, and smile at a stranger. You might make the day of someone else, just by smiling.
Okie dokie folks, tomorrow is Valentine’s day. Some people “hate” the day, other’s make marriage proposals, and other’s treat their special someone to something special.
I haven’t always celebrated Valentine’s day, because to me I always wondered why one day was singled out to celebrate something that should happen every day in our lives.
In my former life, I wasn’t treated the best, and I dealt with a lot of stuff, that I guess made me into who I am today. I won’t elaborate because the Farmer reads my blog and he doesn’t know about a lot of the stuff I dealt with. It’s ok. I survived.
What I did find was the love of my life. I just wish I had found him about 30 years earlier. But, I’m not complaining. It has just made me realize what I have now, I would not give up for anything.
You see to me…Valentine’s day, should be celebrated EVERY day of our lives. When we find that one person who completes us, and makes us feel cherished, loved, and spoiled. Then well..your on the right track.
I found that, after trying 2 different times, you see this is my third marriage, and I’ve finally got it right. The partner makes a world of difference. Someone who thinks like you do, someone who Loves you and makes you feel like a queen, who values the same things that you do and has the same views as you do.
Someone who I can see myself getting old and sitting on the porch with. That’s what this man does for me.
The funniest thing about us, is our lives have crossed many a time, we were both in the same place but fate or God decided it wasn’t the right time for us. When we both finally met, we were both sorta broken. The cool thing was we both healed each other.
So, while everyone else Celebrates Valentine’s day…I live mine 365 days a year, and to MY Electrician, I love you with All of my heart and soul, I thank you for rescuing me and healing me at the same time.
Also, thank you for fixing my dryer, and loving me everyday, for putting up with all of my sh##, and hugging me and kissing me whenever I ask or just doing it cuz……
Here’s to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old…
Here is to the clean slate, to start all over, for memories to be made, times to be cherished, and life to be lived.
Me…I’m looking forward to crossing some things off my bucket list, and living life-like it was my last day because folks ya never really know. Be Kind to one another, smile whenever you can, laugh whenever you can, and cherish every day. But most of all, believe in your dreams….because they do come true, if you work hard enough and you try hard enough.
To the Farmer, I Love you, to the Electrician, You’re my World, to my kids, glory be I am so proud of you all,to Momma, I love you so much and am willing to work hard “with you” and for you. To the friends I’ve made this past year, Bless you, to the friends of my past that have come into my future…Bless you too, I’ve missed you, P….DeeDee…and other’s to many to mention…. I am truly blessed by all of you so….to all of you I wish a Truly Happy New Year.
