Seems like just yesterday

It seems like just yesterday that I brought an adorable, serious little guy home from the hospital.  In reality, he is now 12 years old, as of this afternoon.  So hard to believe.  So far from the serious little guy that we brought home from the hospital that he is almost as tall as I am.  Sigh.  Now, I’m the proud mother of a child just short of his teens…how did THAT happen?

I’m so proud of him.  He is sweet, caring, thoughtful, and smart.  He held the door for me at dinner tonight, asked me if I needed help with something I was carrying, and he’s funny to boot.  We have our times when we but heads but overall, he’s a wonderful son.

December Azaleas

12.03.2016 Encore Azaleas at Botanical Garden.jpg

I took this picture today at the local botanical garden.  My father would have loved them; he adored azaleas.  I thought of him as soon as I saw that these were in bloom.  They are known as encore azaleas and they bloom twice.  It is so nice, as the world around me greys and browns for winter, to see the bright pink and the pale pink and the white azaleas blooming again.  Reminds me of Daddy and makes me smile – he’d love that.
