I really want to describe it for you…it was so awesome a day. I’ll do my best, knowing that I can’t do it justice. It was just a beautiful day…warm (in the seventies, I’d say), sun shining brightly, big white fluffy clouds slowly passing by…birds were everywhere, singing, nest-building, food-gathering…I had received a promotion at my job, the boss couldn’t say enough good things about my performance…the stock market was up and my portfolio was bulging…the IRS called me and said I had overpaid and they were sending me a refund…everywhere I went drivers were courteous, they waved and smiled and never cut me off once…all my friends, new and old had called me just to check in and tell me they missed me…I was also feeling very well physically, results of medical tests had confirmed I was fit as a fiddle, one inch taller and had even lost ten pounds…I felt like I could run a marathon…there was not even a single phone call from a telemarketer all day…my wife and I went out to our favorite restaurant, the food and service was fantastic…then we went to a movie with a great and inspiring story line that left us with the warm fuzzies…we returned to our palace, parked our limo in the garage and entered our beautifully decorated, freshly cleaned home…I climbed into our big warm bed, said my prayers which were full of thanksgiving and drifted off quickly to a deep sleep with a smile on my face and visions of sugarplums dancing in my head.
Can you believe I had such a day? Well…it was either what I just described above or it was this…LAST THURSDAY NIGHT OUR DAUGHTER JENNY AND SON-IN-LAW, DANIEL TOLD US THAT OUR GRANDDAUGHTER, SKY-BABY, WAS GOING TO BE A BIG SISTER!!!! JENNIFER IS DUE IN SEPTEMBER. SO NOW I AM EXPECTING TWO NEW GRANDBABIES THIS YEAR, THE GOOD LORD WILLING. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! MATT AND CHRISTI ARE DUE IN AUGUST. AND NOW SKLAR’S LITTLE SISTER OR BROTHER IS DUE IN SEPTEMBER.
I wouldn’t mind at all if you spoke a word on behalf of these two families as they await their new arrivals.
Thank you for reading this and sharing our joy. I had a feeling it would please you. I love you all, but my Father lifts and lowers the sun for you.
By the way, Rex, come September, my grandchild count will equal yours…nonni, nonni, boo, boo!
