Planes, Trains and Automobiles....

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!

I love watching our young adult kids move into the next phase of their life and see them grow and figure stuff out. Like how to get along! lol What a blessing and a new car!

I have two Honda's 1 a 94-302,000 miles and the other A 96-180,00. You will love that car.

The end of the road, contentment seems to make you more able to fight the evil surrounding you. I am like that at any rate. when you are content what have you left to fear?

Positive energy does work! I'm feeling yours all the way here..and I'm lovin' the good looking guys.

A priceless picture, a priceless moment in time. I have learned to enjoy these moments also...they add up to months and years after awhile.

bugerlugs63- We are all on the same journey to be better people, just at different stages. Those who are on the negative path need to steer clear.

Annette- Oh I so understand your words. Watching my two sons at the beginning of their life journey as adult men is simply amazing. When good things happen in my life I always try to take time to thank God for my blessings.

WM- I just got the car delivered last night. I'm in love. It's a Honda Accord, sunroof and all that jazz. The fact that my boy put his own sweat and labor to make it safe for me is the main reason I will always love this car. I am content and am feeling rather brave these days. Scary stuff, lol.

luluberoo- I agree about positive energy. I do believe it is contagious. I have never been a "negative Nancy" type of gal. The stretches of happiness seem to be getting longer and longer. My heart actually feels lighter. xoxo
