Today 5  7 is my husband’s 57th birthday!

What did I get him?

NOTHING

Why?

Because for the past 25 years nothing that I’ve ever given him was good enough!

I am a CHEAP frugal shopper so he’s never used a single item that I’ve given him including gift certificates/cards.

Actually seven years ago I started giving him single dollar bills, and no not for what you’re thinking!  I would give him a dollar for each year starting with a pack of 50.  Most times he’d spend it on the boys, but this year he’s not even getting that because we just spent a bunch of money to replace the engine in Tayair’s old car to give to Malik.  Of course we had to assign the car to him and because he had an accident last month it’s costing us an additional $350 month, therefore, no one gets any birthday money this or next year!

Happy Birthday Hubby!

Happy Birthday Gloria

Forever In My Heart

I know that I’m not the only one who has lost someone far too young.
  No matter how much time goes by, she will always be Unsung.

I often wonder how it would be if I could see her just one more time.
To see her face, feel her warm embrace or hear her laugh out loud.

God knows my heart breaks and just how long it takes to heal.

I love her more than anyone else no matter how it feels.

I don’t watch the videos to see her laugh and smile,

It’s much too much to handle and all I do is cry.

Today she would have been 50, but 29 was all she got, I miss and love you sweet Gloria, forever in my heart

Rest In Heaven, Gloria Cross, Jr.

I love you lil sis

Mama Midget

Her hands

Her touch

Her soft white hair

 

Her smile

Her laugh

A smirk or a glare

 

Her song

Her hum

The way she rocked in her chair

 

Her voice

Her eyes

You knew that she cared

Mama

Nana

Momma Midget

 

We love you

We miss you
