Happy Birthday Matthew!

Forty-eight years ago today at 12:46 in the afternoon, my only son was born. Through the years, we have talked exactly at that time. It will be 12:46 in less than half an hour, so I am going to go look up the number of his office. This is one of my favorite pictures of him. These are his boys and he has one beautiful daughter. (Thank you, God!) There is an old saying---"Your son is your son, till he takes him a wife, but your daughter is your daughter for all of her life." So, moms give your sons to their wives, but keep them in your heart and keep loving them, even when they are getting a bit long in the tooth. Luckily for me, my daughter-in-law is a real gem and shares him with us. I gave him his "birthday cookies" a couple of days ago, but I know he reads my blog occasionally. So, today ---
Happy Birthday Matthew!
Love, Dad and Mom

Passing along best birthday wishes as well. My parents had two sons before they had a daughter and were very happy to get her. They had another son, then a run of seven grandsons (no granddaughters).

Dear Kacey,

I just returned home and I'm checking in at my favorite blogs! I appreciate the advice on your church photo post, and I always enjoy taking a gander at a good looking man like your son...his wife and you are both lucky!

Hugs,
Betty

Good Wednesday morning Kacey !

How are you doing today ?

Thank you for the sweet comment that you left ! I'm glad that you like what I write.

I always sign in to my blog so I can leave comments.

I feel bad when someone writes a post and I don't say something -

I guess to me it is like answering a phone call. I know cyber seems to be different than real life, but I can't do it any other way.

Oh well, another one of my quirks !

Anyway, have to go take a shower, and then go work out !

What is new with you ?

What are your plans for the 4th of July weekend ?

Dear Kacey...49 years ago on June 26th my brother was born. I must have been picking up your connection, because at approximately 12:30 pm on the 25th I called him to wish him a happy birthday, then of course I realized I was a day early!

Have missed your voice and am trying to get back in the swing of things. Hope all is well chica.

Ciao for now...
