I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I had a great weekend with many of my favorite gals. As I sit here staring at my computer screen, the words are not coming to me today - hang with me (I've hit the delete button 100 times and restarted this 5...)
So here are some thoughts for the week - I want to take a moment to thank all of you who help me everyday. One of my ways to deal with life is to reflect and share all my memories of Joe. I sometimes fear I will forget. I don't want to ever forget. So, I promise to talk about him everyday and I appreciate everyone who listens and shares their memories. It is hard to live without your best friend. Nothing can make it easier ... but I choose to talk about him everyday so I will not forget.
A quick Joe story (I've shared with some already). Last Tuesday night was a tough night. I was pretty tough / mean to my mom. I didn't mean to be and truly didn't even realize it, but I was evil. SO - mom being great came over and we talked and I just realized life was getting the best of me at the moment. I went to bed that night just feeling crappy and needing to chat with Joe. I gave Zoe her 2 kisses and then her 1000 kisses to take with her is she goes before me...and then I looked up to say good night to Joe and tell him 143. As soon as I looked up my ceiling fan began to spin. I didn't hit the switch - I didn't do anything to cause this. So the next night - I needed to try all this again and see if it was the humidifier or what...NOTHING. Once again - I just need to believe. Joe is always there - he just saves his moments to show himself.
Bowling Update - All shifts are full. Thank you to everyone who signed up! I want to invite everyone to attend even if you are not on a bowling team. There will be plenty of laughter and fun for all. A side note - if you have not paid for your team, please take care of that with Brad in a timely manner.
Well, signing off for the night and hoping all of you have a wonderful week.
Love - Rach
