I love, love, LOVE being a "Ma-Ma". I love being a wife to my high school sweetheart. I love being in love, I love LIFE! I love my church, friends, the feeling of awe, mesmerism. I love my job, learning, and smiles; I love to dream. I love being "home" and simple things. I love to argue (or, should I say, debate); I love surprises, hot summers and lots of sunshine, Mt. Dew, cemeteries, being a big kid, photos & photography, purple, asking questions, watching beauty pageants (and judging!), creativity, dancing, music, traveling, scrapbooking, potatos (cooked any way!), inspiration, games, observing people, geneology, learning anything new, friends, family, experiencing life...
Simply stated, I love.
Little farmer Jax had more veggies than he could pick! The gardening got a little old as the end of summer approached, but he had a great time overall. This year, we had tomatoes, squash (oh, did we ever!), butterbeans, and a little bit of corn. Plenty for us, and much left over to share. Next year, we may try something different... Jax is already looking forward to planting time next spring.
Whew! It's been a while since I have gotten to blog. I have been wanting to blog so badly, but I have been so busy just trying to keep ahead with my classes. When we left off, I mentioned that Jax's car went to a pit stop on Day #2 of the new system. Well, knock on wood, that has been the only visit to a pit stop that he has experienced! Great news! Just as he promised, he has been an angel ever since that initial learning experience. At the end of Week #2, he got to select a prize but he did not receive a treat due to the pit stop error that occurred earlier in the week. And, yall!, do you know what my sweet boy picked for his prize? A RING for his Momma!! isn't that just so sweet? His very first prize, and he chose something for me. I thought it was the sweetest thing ever, but I also felt bad that he didn't get something that HE wanted. But he assured me that he really wanted me to have the ring. It's orange, his favorite color! And more evidence of his dripping-sweetness followed: that night, I was rocking Joy to sleep in one recliner, and he was laying accross the other recliner. Finally, Joy zonked out, and I quietly got up to go put her in her bed. As I walked by Jax, all stretched out in the other recliner, he reached up and lightly touched Joy's dangling leg and whispered, "Night Night I love you Joy" as I walked by with her. Doesn't that just melt your heart?!! He's a sweet, sweet boy. I love him.
