I have always wanted a sports car. Always said I wanted a red corvette. Sometimes when things happen in life you don't realize the affect it has on you. Sometimes it is overtime, sometimes faster than you can blink an eye. Our lives have changed at lightening speed in the last five years. It has been good and we have been happy. The lost of two very special people in our lives in the last two years as made me realize life is yesterday, today and tomorrow. Without them all it is just a day. So without waiting for all of the tomorrows to come, I have moved to making dreams come true today. So in 8 weeks, this will be my new car. It is just a car, but it is so much more. It is dream, a lot of work, a reality I never thought I would know.
We did it, gave in and gave her a PLAY make up set for her birthday. She was thrilled. She was ready to put it on and head to dinner. That's when we broke the news - at home ONLY!!!! It is a good thing too. It took two days before we could get her to understand the blue was for eyes, not cheeks. very, very funny.
Just look at the eyes. They say it all. Sweet, tender, mischievous, happy, and loving. Don't forget the stubborn determined streak that runs right through it all. That is my Ruston. At four, his best friend is his sister. He is lost without her. As a mom, I couldn't ask for more. He looks to her to learn, to teach, to share. Together they are growing up.
This is my girl. It is all Ani. She LOVES her make up kit that we gave her for her 8th birthday. Yes, she is 8. Where has the time gone? She has grown so fast. I am so proud to be her mom. She has a HUGE heart, such compassion and caring for being 8. It always surprises me. She is so full of life, so full of happiness. So full of spirit. I hope that no matter what she encounters in this life, no one takes a single ounce of it away.
