Well, my red pick-up, (that I paid $500) for went up. It failed emissions and inspection and I wasn't going to invest $1700 for the repairs. Guess who came to the rescue? My baby boy...Who works at a Honda dealership. He found me a decent Honda w/sunroof and all cool amenities for $2700! I will have it parked out front by Friday. He is putting a new radiator in for me and than it's mine.
Jay and his bff Reuben came up to say hi, and he gave me a set of keys to the car. The boys wound up spending the night at this girls home down the street who Jay gave a puppy too. Joe spent the night at my house and we all met up for breakfast at a local diner. Jay ( he hasn't gone by his given name of Jesse in eons) profusely thanked Joe and MY SON offered to pay for breakfast..I almost choked on my coffee. Joe declined his offer, but it was one of those moments where I saw two people that I love laughing and getting along. You know all of us moms' live for these moments.
When the world seems to be crumbling around me it is those type of moments that keep me sane. I have been talking with my older son about once a week, we just have a different type of relationship. I am learning to take things at face value and make the most of whatever is happening around me. My new "thing" is trying to give off positive energy and it seems to be working. When I think about the person I was in my 20's and who I am today I am thankful and grateful. There are so many of you that I read and have been catching up on. I feel like we are all on similar journeys, just at different places. The end goal seems to be finding contentment and peace. That is a very possible goal to attain. Peace!
