Weekly Smile; Proud Mama, Love My Family!

My weekly smile goes to my daughter! She is promoting at the end of this week. I am so incredibly proud of her and all her achievements!

I am a proud mama as in a few days we are heading up North to Vandenberg AFB, where my daughter will be promoting to Major in the Air Force. I can’t express how proud I am of all her achievements! ❤ Not only is she an Air Force Academy grad, she has excelled in the Air Force with her career in Space. We are excited to be heading there to help her celebrate her promotion. I started this blog post as a weekend coffee share but this last weekend got away from me and I did not have time to write. So I have turned it into my weekly smile! 😀

I don’t know what happened this last weekend. It was a roller coaster of emotions for me which isn’t like me at all. I am pretty rock steady. Looking back it seems a bit over reactive of me and it all stems from our future. I am wanting to be more focused on our plan to move to Arizona and well, it is very difficult to get all the pieces of the puzzle in place to make this happen and for some reason I was just really emotional about it all. It doesn’t really matter all the particulars, certainly not worth rehashing but by the time it got to Sunday I knew there was no way I could write a coffee share.

It started out to be the most gloomy of Sunday’s, very overcast and foggy out and the temperature outside never rose above 60 degrees. It was chilly out and as the day wore on it became incredibly sad. I don’t usually write about the news and stay completely away from politics, but the accident involving Kobe Bryant was so incredibly sad and I am not even a sports person. It just got to me because I think I was feeling sorry for myself and right before my eyes, as I listen to the news, were not only his family but other families who loss their lives in a blink of an eye. What a sad day.

I am writing this to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, for being here and for smiling along with me. 😀 You all help me, and I hope in some way I help you look at life and SMILE! Certainly, we are very lucky to be here to enjoy another day. I am also very thankful and grateful to be able to celebrate with my daughter and my family! ❤

My family in Arizona is always on my mind. I can’t take a new photo so I’m re-sharing a photo I took when we were there a few weeks ago!

LIFE! is full of choices, it is full of fun, grief, happiness and sadness. We all have to make what we can of it and I refuse to just sit back and take a back seat. I want to feel life, the good and the bad. I will do my best to make it the best darn life I can make it and so this is a crazy smile this week but its a culmination of a very strange weekend. Thank you for visiting and for smiling. We are all so very fortunate to be here to enjoy our SMILES together! 😀

Grateful, family loving Grandma!

  1. A move even a small one across town is a huge stress. I have moved continents twice (Canada to England and then 14 years later back to Canada)and both times it was a HUGE deal for me. So give yourself a break and know that you are normal. Moving is up there with death and divorce in terms of trauma. It will come together and you will get through it.

    1. Oh thank you Anne! Wow, those were huge moves you’ve made. I’m thankful we’ve experienced moving across town before and yes, that was very stressful. The emotion was rather a surprise, and have to remember comes with the territory. Thank you so much for your support and kind words! Means so much to me! ❤️

    I saw about that crash on the news it is so sad so many families affected, I think when we feel as sad as we do about news like that it shows our genuine caring heart. You are a wonderful kindred woman with a beautiful family. Have a awesome rest of the week. (:

    1. Oh dear friend! Thank you so much for your kind words. Always look forward to hearing from you and your right, one day at a time. I like to share posts like this just to keep it real, as no one’s life is perfect, or easy and this last weekend sure caught me by surprise. My emotions running so high, and ya it’s our woman right, haha! Love that sentiment!! Of course, my main focus is being positive and I won’t ever stop sharing positivity when I can. Had to share about my daughter too! ❤️
