Congrats Son!

Congratulations to my son who completed his four phases of law enforcement training and passed all four phases and his final! He also took the TCLEOSE (state exam) and passed that too. TCLEOSE serves as the regulatory agency for all peace officers in Texas. Now begins the job search. I'm one proud mama!

Time to catch up...

So what's been happening over the past two weeks? Let me think back a bit. Well on March 17th we celebrated Mom's 77th birthday. She is still recovering from her ruptured appendix and staying with my sister in Florida. It's been a slow road and she's not ready to return to her home in Ohio but at least she's in good hands with my sister.

During the weekend of March 23rd we spent some time in Carmel, CA in honor of what would have been Yvonne's 38th birthday. She so loved the beach so it seemed appropriate to gather there to say a prayer and sing her happy birthday. The weather was just gorgeous considering in the Bay Area it was chilly and rainy.
I've been steadily working on my patriotic Yo Yo quilt and making progress. Had no idea how many yo yos it would take to make a quilt large enough for our queen size bed but I'm enjoying it and so hoping to have it done by this year's July 4th holiday. I'm also working a new model for Little House Needleworks which all you fans of Diane are just going to love. But that is all I can say about that. LOL! I have a new stash of charts from both LHN and CCN which are just wonderful. Oh, I so need more time to enjoy my stitching and the pile of charts and books slowly growing.

Quote of the week

"Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential."
- Barack Obama

"Real tears are not those that fall from the eyes and cover the face, but those that fall from the heart and cover the soul.
