On Saturday, the 17th my grand-daughter Grace Ann
turned one year old. By this being her first birthday party I wanted to go all
out. All I can say is a grand-mothers love. For those of you who are
grand-parents, you know that special love for your first grand-baby and wanting
things to be perfect. Well, that’s the joy I was feeling for Grace Ann’s first
party. I was overjoyed to say the least.
Just when you think you know
all the love is… along come the grandchildren. ~ Anonymous
While out running errands Saturday, we decided to make it a
fun day and take my grand-daughter, Grace Ann to the zoo. It was not anything
planned just something to do on a pretty day. Sometimes doing things on the
spur of the moment makes it even more exciting. Seeing that Grace Ann makes one
year old next Saturday, the 17th, we decided to get the party
started early. It’s Grace Ann’s birthday, it’s her birthday!

Finding the time to get a little “Me” time should take precedence over many things. When we are
depleted we are not fully capable of doing anything for anyone much less ourselves.
If we do find the time to do for others, it is not done with love and care.
It’s more like out of obligation. Before we commit to doing for others, we
should make sure we are in the best place mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
Unity is strength…when there is
teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” Mattie J.T.
Words cannot express the shock, hurt, disbelief nor the pain I feel
for families that were affected in Baton Rouge and the surrounding parishes
here in Louisiana last week. It has been a week since the flooding occurred and
I still cannot gather my thoughts around everything that has happened. And, I
know if I was not affected and feel this way, I cannot imagine the families
that were affected thoughts and feelings. There are so many mixed emotions out
there that it is heartbreaking.
of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” ~
Letting go can be a daunting task. There are many obstacles
that hinder you from letting go. When you have finally reached the point of enough,
many times those obstacles becomes obsolete. It is typically about, “how do I move on?”
