of visiting

it's been a bit crazy here
it seems so much is going on
"hi mom there is someone very special to me that i want you to meet"
that special someone would travel 20 hours to visit our son
meet the family
{i kept reminding myself he's growing up}
the house was cleaned
poppies were ordered
french soap was placed in the bath
this chicken piccata was made 
{and loved}
good times were had
i must admit 
i kind of fell in love in with our visitor
{she is the bees knees}
many tears were shed when these sweet days of visiting came to an end
then it was on to the ice for our daughter
a new broom was ordered
drives were made
bonspiels were attended
rocks were thrown
the seniors felt it 
 the last speil as high school students
{time flew}
i welcome the stillness that has found me
a bit of hibernating is in order
since the snow is falling once again
this book was ordered
along with 
this one
life is good

Savor these moments, as I know you are. When our children make this transition into adulthood, it is a precious life changing time for each one of you.
