This exciting opportunity was offered to me by The Money School of Delaware in April at The Green Tie Event and I have been over the top excited ever since.  I haven’t taught since 1983, and am really looking forward to returning to my first love.  

My grandmother would also be super duper excited and I know she will be watching over me.

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway”

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say “Goodbye”.
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you –
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you’ll always stay.

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

We love you

We miss you

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope you all had a good weekend, mine was nice and it started with a Transformation Bonfire at church Friday night, where we all witnessed a Meteorite.  I had just put away my iPad after taking pictures of the bonfire so didn’t get a chance to capture it, did you see it?  We were outside in the cold so the songs, prayers and Sermonette was short, and it ended with an unburdening. We were encouraged to write down anything that we wanted to be released from and then cast it into the fire.  Only hours before I was informed that my Aunt has passed, she had been suffering with emphysema for years and God finally released her from her pain and suffering – RIP Aunt Myrtle.

We woke up this morning to a Wonderful Winter Wonderland…Spring will just have to wait a little longer.  Although it is very pretty to look at it wasn’t so pretty to drive in, it took 2 hours to get to work and it’s still snowing so it will be a long commute home.

Today’s outfit had to be changed from a skirt and blouse to pants and top for a casual and comfortable Monday.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

To all my friends in the New England territory I hope you are ready for the Nor’easter and that you’ll stay safe indoors this weekend.  I’m sure there will be several changes and cancellations of events for New York’s Fashion Week activities.  The parade in New Rochelle that was scheduled Saturday to celebrate Ray Rice and The Ravens’ Super Bowl win was postponed until March 2nd.

We are getting rain with a chance of flurries beginning around midnight with little to no accumulation   I don’t mind snowstorms that occur on the weekends late a night because we are safe indoors and not on the road with the crazies.

My son wasn’t too happy taking the pics this morning which is puzzling because I was the one standing out in the rain!

 

I was playing around with the photo editing with PhotoScape which I like better than PicMonkey and Pixl.

Today this morning it was brisk, bright and cloudless, eerily similar to the morning of 9.11.01

RIP to all those who were tragically lost on that day – our Angels forever

Day 2 of skirt week is completely thrift-free which for me is a feat!  In June, I purchased this Valerie Bertinelli skirt  (worn here) at Marshalls, I didn’t want to pay full price but I also didn’t want to wait for it to be marked down.  The top was either purchased at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Ross, as they all have similar clothing items.

Wishing you a wonderful evening.

This was the 1st year that we didn’t pile into the car to go see the annual 4th of July Fireworks in Middletown.  We usually leave home at dusk to drive to Friendly’s where we parked, ate ice cream and oooh and aaahed at the sky being lit up by fireworks a few miles away.  There were 2 reasons for not going this year, the most important one being that Friendly’s caught fire the week before and burned to the ground and secondly, we just didn’t feel like going, we’ve seen enough fireworks at Disney to last a lifetime.

However,  in keeping with some traditions Tayair and I wore  RED, WHITE  &  BLUE, and Malik wore a T-Shirt in memory of Andre Smith the HS Football Player killed in a car accident over Spring Break.  I did watch some of the Macy’s fireworks on TV and oooh and aaah at their sky being lit up without having to fight traffic to get home.

RIP Andre Smith
