Birthday Celebrations

I’m sitting here writing after a lovely day. I drove south and got together with Mandy and her Grandmother to celebrate Grammy’s birthday! She turned 85 years old!

I was so happy that I had the chance to spend the time with her. You see, although she is my former mother in-law, I love her just as much as I did when I was legally her daughter in-law.

I guess some things don’t change with the signing of divorce papers. Isn’t that wonderful?

We had a three hour lunch just talking about the old days, and Mandy’s birth, and how I’ve known her since I was just 15 years old.

We shared so many of the happiest days of my life, the saddest too. But today we talked about the happy ones, like Mandy’s birth and the wonder of her grandchildren.

Love never dies, does it? I know with my first marriage, sadly, we went to different places after the accident, but the love for some of my ex-husband’s family, has stayed with me all of this time.

I am a lucky woman!

  3. Hi Mom,

    I had a really great time too. I will let you know–Gram left her balloon with me. I stopped at Dunkin Donuts to get an iced coffee after I dropped her off, and had a little memory of “balloon heaven.” So I released the balloon, thought of Katie, and watched it float away…. Watching the balloon just bob and dance across the sky just made me feel so good….like this one is for you Katie! šŸ™‚

    Love you,


    PS: Text me our pics! šŸ™‚ If you have a chance!
