THE BEST DAYS

“Some of the best days of your life haven’t happened yet …”

I received this out of the blue from my dear friend Mechele Mills. Happy is knowing your friends care even when you don’t know they do. You are a doll! You have no idea how much this message means to me. Thank you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Today is my baby boy's sixth birthday, and he tells me I can't carry him like a baby anymore, and I said, “Prove it. Show me your muscles.”

And he busted out with doing 10 pushups. I was impressed. Happy birthday, Michael Don. I love you little man!

SURPRISE

Sweet surprise to run into this beautiful face today! Miss her! Extra bonus of some snuggles with James — with Arlene Moretich Murphand and Laura Murph-Elam.

PRACTICE

This evening when we were driving back from retrieving the girls from the grandparents (they had spent a week with them), Rachel, 8, handed Peyton and Blair (her siblings) each $1 of her money. I asked her what she was doing.

Her reply, “Practicing being a grandmother."

I asked her what giving money had to do with bring a grandmother, and her reply was, “It is not the money-giving but being kind.”

Shout out to the most amazing woman on the planet, Christy Kennedy. While I work on the road out of town, she takes care of our home, our children, works and still finds time to throw me a surprise party when I do come back.

Awesome wife. Awesome mother. Awesome friend.
