Ten Days and No Post!

IF I tried to tell you all that has gone in the last ten days, you wouldn't believe that that much could happen in the life of one person.  It would seem it should take a year, at least.

Life has interrupted my joy of writing.  Oh, but, I have so much to share with you over the next month when I return home to San Miguel.  Lots of photos too.  Some from January and many from February.

The latest epic weekend was ALL family.  To be more specific, it was the THIRTEENTH birthday of the youngest of four in Kingwood.  It was definitely a chock-a-block weekend.  Whew, when I left there yesterday to return to my aerie on the 19th floor in Houston (Kingwood is a northern suburb of Houston), I had to have a siesta!

I laughed when I commented to my daughter, Julie on the fact that she had no more "wee ones" in her house.  I asked if she was sad.  She looked at me and said, "No, are you kidding?"  I remember the same feeling, vividly, some 33 years ago............

I can't even begin to tell you how many miles I've driven.  Or how many meals I've eaten in various places and delicious cuisines.  However, believe it or not, there are many friends I haven't been able to see or even talk to.  There just isn't enough time. 

It's been a wonderful time to reconnect, reminisce, laugh and since I'm such a softy, tear up at certain memories.

I've seen my grandchildren in different ways.  I acknowledge their growing maturity.  Their kindness, love and thoughtfulness toward me humbles me.   I've gotten enough hugs to store up to last me for a few months and so......

Hopefully I'll be heading home in the next couple of days.  That is if my contact lense arrive manana.  If not, who knows. 

Sometimes, even things in the US can be unpredictable.  It's a good thing Mexico has prepared me in many ways for that eventuality.

See you on down the road.........in Mexico!

Like my Mama always said: Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. Enjoy your gift. This is the day the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it :)

Sometimes life gets in the way - and in the end that is cool too. Glad to see you in print in any case - have a safe trip home.
