Just Go For It!

 

 

Accomplish picassa with Sabrina's photo 2015

 

In honor of our daughter’s university graduation, I found this quote, which I thought was perfect for today’s festivities and celebrations. The gorgeous photo is from my good friend, Sabrina.

Our daughter has persevered not only academically but also personally and today she’ll walk across the finish line with a Bachelor’s Degree in hand. To say we’re proud doesn’t even cover all the emotions. 🙂

So go out and Live, Dream, Act and Believe!

Sending much love, Lauren ♥

Happy 94th Birthday, Dad! ♥

Happy 94th Birthday, Dad

I’m honoring my Dad’s 94th Birthday today! 

At this “youthful” stage in his life, he still drives, enjoys reading my blog,
has a facebook now, meets a good friend for lunch often, remains active
in his church and is still going strong!
Someday, I’ll ask him again what the secret to a long life is…

Dad, I’m sending you a Blitz Torte (your favorite), but this time,
I didn’t make it myself.
You know I’m a great baker,
but this cake is not my specialty, it was Mom’s.
I was afraid mine would look like the California Earthquake cake again! 🙂
Remember that? I think Mom really enjoyed my attempt and had a good laugh!

There are no new words to say,
only those that have been repeated over the years…

Thank you for all you’ve done for your three daughters
and for all of their families. Your kindness and Love
doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for being our Pillar
and for being Mom’s true love.

WE LOVE YOU AND WISH YOU A HAPPY 94TH!

xoxo

Our daughter is graduating today from community college
and transferring to a university in the fall to work on her BA.
We’re so excited for this new chapter in her life
and so very proud of her hard work.
She especially didn’t let some daunting speed bumps stop her
or even slow her down to reaching this goal.
Her dedication and perseverance inspires everyone
who knows her…

Moving forward…♥

In Loving Memory of Mom for Mother’s Day ♥

I’m reblogging this from last year in memory of Mom for Mother’s Day. “We’ll miss you, Mom, but you live in our hearts everyday.” ♥

Baydreamer

When I think of Mom, I think pink
Cherry blossoms in the spring
I think elegance and grace
and I envision her beautiful face
Her smile would warm others for miles
When I think of Mom
I’m saddened to know
I can’t call her and hear her “hello”
but I can see her
clearly as the garden from my window
and each day she graces my memories
while my love for her grows

To Our Son on his 18th Birthday! ♥

Those years when you relied on us
to hold, feed and guide you
return in sweet memories of
you smiling with your baby blues

To watch you grow as time passes swiftly
is surreal and miraculous
and to witness the young man you’ve become
is simply beyond marvelous!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, M.T.!

WE LOVE YOU!
