First, let me say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the compliments and encouragement about the ottoman slipcover I shared recently. Ya’ll are so sweet!
Now for a few of my favorite things……some very special people in my life.
My favorite (and only) son never ceases to amaze me. We certainly had some trying times in his growing up years but I recently told him I didn’t know how I got so lucky to be his mom. He has worked hard to get to where he is with his career and it is really paying off. To me, he is perfect! Today he was able to obtain one of his long-time dreams….buying a boat! He dreams big and usually reaches his goals. For his birthday a few years ago, he bought himself an H2 (Hummer)! I was a little stumped how I could compete with that so we just gave him a check for a tank of gas!
My son and daughter at The Summit in Birmingham
This afternoon my precious little granddaughter Taylor called me. She is an advanced reader in her 1st grade class. That girl reads all the time! From what I could understand, her AR score was so high she was asked if she wanted to invite a “mystery guest” to read to her class this Friday. She wants me to come read to her class!!!! I am so humbled and honored to do this. I don’t know if I’m supposed to pick a book or if her teacher will provide one so I’ll have to find out. I would love to read “Love You Forever” but I can never read that book without crying. If you’ve never read that book, please get your hands on one and read it…..you’ll cry, I promise.
Daughter Shannon & Taylor
After I finish at Taylor’s school, I’m going to my best friend’s house for the weekend. We haven’t spent any time together since last October. My best friend’s name is Judy (just like mine) and we’ve been best friends for about 30 years. We are so much alike it’s scary.
Here we are at the beach a couple of years ago….Judy is in white and I’m in black & white.
I think you can see why these are some of my “Favorite Things”…..what are yours?
