Musing About Nothing

Sadly, it takes me a few minutes to remember how to make a new entry every time. Hopefully I'll get smarter soon. In the meantime, I have to figure out something to say.

I'm starting to think about what to do for everyone for Christmas...a more difficult task each year. Do any of us really NEED anything? No. So we give each other stuff (because we love each other, of course) and hopefully it is all things we can use or enjoy, and rejoice in our ability to give, and the fact that we have so many people to give to. I sometimes think about people who really don't have other people in their lives to love and who will love them back. That is probably the saddest thing of all. matter what we all give each other for Christmas...hooray for family! And friends. And neighbors. And co-workers. We are blessed.

Do I have anything else to say? Hmmmm...I'm thinking about the fact that in a few weeks Scott will be moving to Utah, and how much we will miss him. I'm tempted to be one of those whiny, clingy, creepy moms who try to make their sons feel guilty for leaving...but I am going to rise above my own personal feelings and be noble. Yes, I want him to move on and open the next chapter in his life...if he must. I want him to find a wonderful girl (if he hasn't already:)...but who could really replace ME???? We'll see. I want him to finish his joking about that. And to really find out who and what he is, and what he believes, and what is truly important. I hope the answers to these and other important questions, can be found in Happy Valley, Utah.
So we will support him in this adventure...and hope that someday he will decide that Albuquerque is the place to be!! :)

OK...that is enough rambling for today...

You're so funny. I think I'll be like that when my kids want to leave home, but I'll have to renember to rise above it too :) Good for you!

It's good Scott will move on, it's time! You think it will be so much quieter, but little Emery will be on the move in no time! I'm like you, mom--glad for all those we have around us to love (and hopefully they love us right back)!

I need to write something on my blog spot (so far there are just pictures)but so far I haven't been able to put my feelings into words. Can I just hire you? I love what you write and agree so much with your feelings. Maybe you should write a book?!
