It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Really?? I don’t care one bit about the game. I am however, a HUGE fan of hanging out with family and friends, enjoying the company and eating food I normally don’t indulge in. I also enjoy hearing my husband laugh his head off over the commercials. That’s what Super Bowl Sunday means to me. How about you?
Have you ever met someone and you just knew by casual observation, that they are going to be somebody? Well I met this young woman last summer and she is exactly that. Some people come into the world to change things for the better and I believe she will. Some people are born knowing there purpose for being here right from the very start; this young woman certainly does. She is a delight to anybody who will take the time to really get to know her. I’m so glad I met you!
I was looking through some pics for today’s post and I chose this one because it made me realize how many pets we have adopted through the years. Our first family pet was a Jack Russel Terrier who just happened to come into our lives at the worst time. All of my kids were under 10 years old with my youngest just having turned 2 that year. I felt like Bosco was another child I had to look after and I was already spread out past thin. It broke my heart to have to give him away to a neighbor but it was what was best for him as well. After that, we didn’t have any pets because I thought it best to wait until the kids were older and handle taking care of a pet. Then entered our rabbit phase. After the 6th rabbit died we decided to take another break from owning a pet.
This Desert Tortoise was a gift from our neighbors to my son. That boy adores turtles. I think that Snap, as he named him, was THE gift of his 12th birthday. But unfortunately Snap didn’t last long because someone stole him not too long after. So here is to you Snap, wherever you are, Jojo still misses you. 🙂
