Wow! I can't believe you'll be 19 at 11:30 pm tonight! NINETEEN!!!!
I can't believe it's been that long. That long ago that I was in labor - very fast labor - with you. Bed at 10:30 that night and you were born an hour later. Fast, fast, fast, and you've been headstrong ever since.
Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday, Dear Kyle. Happy Birthday to you.
I found this little birthday music box a couple of days ago, but it wasn't for sale....yet. I went back again, and it was finally for sale. A REALLY good price too.
I woke up Kyle this morning by putting this on his pillow while he was sleeping. When he realized what was happening, even with the sleep still in his eyes, he gave me his big alligator grin. He is still as cute as ever! True, he is a man now, but he's still my little birthday boy on the 16th of July! That'll never change. AND considering he has spent his last two birthdays on his "personal-independent" summer vacation in California, I'm glad I finally got to see him on his birthday - even if he is at work at his new job until at least 11:30 tonight. Hope he's having fun.
Oh what fun it is to be a mom. A mommy. A mama. Yep, that's me. And I'm happy!!!!
I'm just a country girl, having the time of her life, treasure hunting daily, seeing the good in all things that others might consider worthless. I love creating mixed media artwork and home décor items using found objects...and I've just recently started dabbling in wearable art jewelry. Many of my fixed-up finds have been published in a number of magazines and have won accolades. But my life spent in Southern Oregon, with my family and friends, is the MOST important to me. Without their support and encouragement, I might just be another hoarder! LOL I'm enjoying meeting like-minded persons and sharing ideas, dreams, and experiences...and hope to have the studio open to the public someday soon.
