girl you better slow that mustang down!
Today is Monday June 28 and the first day of the rest of my life. I am alive! I have felt dead since my son was accidentally shot and killed the 17th of this month. But I now know I am not dead and neither is he. He just lives somewhere else now. He lives in Heaven and I live on earth. I don't know when we'll get together but someday we will and what a beautiful day that will be. But until then all mothers want their children to be happy and his joy surpasses happiness. And all children want their mommas to be happy and this is what I will strive for, a little at a time each day. This is not to say I will not fall apart the next moment but I am grateful for each moment of peace and hope of healing I get.
There are not enough words to adequately thank all of you for your comments, well wishes, support and love. You have helped our family beyond understanding. We have gained strength from your prayers.
I'm trying to "meet" the new Sorority Sisters who joined up with Some Days Are Diamonds but geesh there are lots of us!!! And for all my bloggy sisters and friends from before my world came apart I have not even begun to personally contact you but please know I will.
Many of you know that Punkin Darlin and I had our dream vacation planned since January for Boston and were set to leave tomorrow. We have cancelled our trip but we are getting out of "Dodge" for a bit!
We are driving down to south Louisiana over to Port Arthur Texas and back east on the coast line of Louisiana and back up Lafayette and on up to home. We will get away to different surroundings and just be together away from home for a few days. We plan to return home on July 5.
And why the Mustang you ask.................. Well it belongs to baby girl Shari and she graciously is letting us drive it on our trip. I tell you sisters nothing quite like a death puts things into perspective.
This car is her pride and joy and no one I said NO ONE drives "miss tang" but her, but now she says "It's just a thing". and she had the car detailed, filled up with petrol and left a hundred dollars on the dash for "just in case" and said "I want you two cute little old folks to get in this mustang and have the time of your lives, you gotta turn on the AC, roll the windows down, let your pony tail fly, momma and rev up the engine.........and uh by the way............miss tang don't like to travel less than 75 miles an hour"! So my Punkin Darlin, somewhat the ole rocker dude he is will be jammin and mizmollye will be smilin and if anythign we'll probably get a few tickets by driving too slow!
So I have many many details to attend to before leaving very early Wednesday morning and girls I have to tell you, my phone does not take pictures, and we have no laptop, so I will do it the old fashion technical way. I will keep up with our adventures by handwriting in my journal, take pictures with my Canon point and shoot, and download them when I get back on my desktop and then I will share with you our gettaway!
Until then, happy trails... keep smiling...and remember God Loves You and so does Mizmollye!
