Savor

This is a beautiful Sunday. I’m enjoying my garden, relaxing in my swing meanwhile the girls are having fun in the pool. My husband is getting ready the BBQ and I’m ready to savor some delicious food. We have to embrace our days, savor every minute because we will never know how long will last.

Caper

So far, I’ve been enjoying my summer vacation. My grandkids are spending their days capering around the house. They’re enjoying their time together. Before the girls have to go back to their home in Arizona they want me to teach them how to dance. They have been begging since they arrived and to my surprise they want to learn Latino dances as Salsa and Merengue. I’m a pretty good dancer however, it has been too long since I shake this body.

My girls tell me I still have the moves. They are such a sweetheart. We have been dancing all weekend if I can call it dancing. Also, I’m taking advantage and its helping me losing weight. My house is full of laughter and I’m loving every minute.

Gone

What a perfect prompt for today my girls just left an hour ago, flying back to Arizona. They supposed to fly yesterday, but then we got another winter storm along with ten inches of snow. If it keeps snowing like this, they would not be a place to dump the snow.  In every corner, you can see a huge pile of snow the roads are getting narrow and impossible to drive. The ten days the girls spend in North Dakota they play in the snow almost every day. Those two loves snow, wearing coats, hats, and mittens. Before they left, they kissed me and say it’s been the best Christmas ever.  They always make me smile. In a few hours, they would in their own beds and I am missing them already.  However, we are making plans for the spring and that’s not too far away.

Merry Christmas!

 I flew from North Dakota to Arizona on Thursday night to surprise my granddaughters. The flight got delayed and by the time I arrived the girls were asleep not knowing I was coming. I gave my daughter a hug and I told her how much I’ve missed her. My daughter sits me at the dining table and went to get the girls. The girls thought they were in trouble. They came down and walk close to where I was sitting without noticing me. The girls keep looking at their mom when finally, they saw me smiling at them. They began to jump of excitement and run to give me a hug. We all have tears of joy. The oldest thought I will spend Christmas with them. My daughter has to explain I was part of the surprise and they would be spending Christmas in North Dakota with the rest of the family. Their faces were pure joy until they realized that mommy wasn’t coming with us. She told them it will be fine because she has to work and can’t get the time off also she will pick them up on New Year’s. At least I’ve the chance to spend a day with her and we have a mini Christmas and open a few gifts. We flew back on Friday and the girls already play in the snow.  We have a white Christmas and according to the weather expect 17 to 24 inches of snow. My daughter gave us the best Christmas gift letting the girls come and visit us for Christmas. I wish everyone who celebrates the holidays a wonderful, beautiful, and magical Christmas. We all need to remember the holidays isn’t about material gifts it’s all about the gift of family and their love. I wish the spirit of Christmas stay forever in everyone’s heart.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it. I hope you all have a wonderful day. I’m truly blessed to be able to spend time with the people I love the most. My lovely sons came for dinner with their families and we enjoy the day eating and watching football. I’ve the chance to chat with my girls who are spending their first Thanksgiving in Arizona.

I’m grateful for having so many people who have given me the strength to be in the place I am today and to appreciate what I have. For the past year, I’ve been blessed to meet people who with the smallest gestures they have touched my heart and make me a better person.

I’m grateful for having my kids that I adore, a loving husband, good health, for our two dogs, to be here tonight with my feet up resting and watching a movie.

Tomorrow is time to start decorating for Christmas my favorite holiday. Let’s the countdown begin because on December 23rd my granddaughters would be home for Christmas.
