Lately I have had a little bit of time to create things and I have really enjoyed my Cricut and Gypsy. I have been playing with them and I have created some great pages. I will upload some photos shortly. I just had to give a shout out to my Cricut and Gypsy! Thank you Provo Crafts!!!
It seems like yesterday that I was bringing my first son home from the hospital. He will be 21 on Monday, January 9th!!! on the day he was born I became a mother, my mom became a Nanna, my dad became a Poppa and my grandmother's both became great grandma's. Mathew was the first of his generation on both sides of my parents families and on his dad's side of the family. since then, I have had 2 more boys, my parents now have 16 grandkids. my Grandmother has too many great grandkids to count! 21 years ago was the start of many things in our family.
It has been an emotional week for me. Thinking that my oldest will be 21 on the 9th and my youngest will be 18 on the 31st. It really does go by fast. Too fast if you ask me. I wish I could turn the clock back and enjoy them more. There was always too much to do. Raising 3 boys on your own makes it hard. I often wonder why God had me raise them on my own, but it is not for me to understand. God is in control. I have 3 handsome, wonderful young men and I love them very much and they love me too.
I cannot wait to celebrate Mathew's 21st birthday. We are having the family over tomorrow for Mathew's favorite meal, Tuna Casserole and a Peanut Butter and Jelly cake. It will be a great time of celebration.
