.....From today, Rich and I will be winging our way to a land far away, but very near in our hearts!! Ok, that was pretty corny, I admit, but I am just a little giddy with excitement! 1 week of work left, whoo hoo!! I so can't wait to meet Mia. I just hope I can temper all this excitement with a little humbleness and gratefulness for this incredible gift...

This month, the 31st, will mark the one year anniversary of my mother's passing. I won't be here, but sister from St Louis will be. Thank you so much, PJ for coming in, for both you and Lisa taking care of the house and dogs, for being there for dad during this difficult month....I miss her so much, but I can't help but be happy today....I know mom would understand!

I can feel your excitement. I can't even imagine how you must feel. I know your Mom would not want you to contain it and I am sure she wishes she was here to share the joy on earth.

Dear Jen,
I can relate to what you are feeling about the passing of your mom. Remember I lost my Dad this month.I know that your Mom would be so happy for you and want you to do what you needed to do to bring that little one home.I am sure that she is looking down on you and will make sure everything goes good for you and your husband. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and remember family is important. God Bless

Roma and I sat here and listened to your song for your mother tonight. We're also very excited for your travels.
