This post is part of SoCS…So I am just going to start writing with this prompt. I’m going to Celebrate. This year is going to be a year of celebrations and I’m looking forward to them all. This year we will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and I will be celebrating my 60th birthday. Our youngest son is getting married this year Y A Y and I will be the mother of the groom.
I’m really trying to get ready for the wedding, and wrap my brain around this. Our first wedding !!!! He asked me last time I talked to him what song did I want to dance our Mother/Son dance too. OMG… tears started coming down. They were happy tears. She is just the sweetest girl and I told him if I picked someone for him, it would’ve been her. She’s beautiful inside and out. They are going to have such a wonderful life together. We spent Thanksgiving out East with them both and her family. We had so much fun. I was just so touched that he wanted us to be there with him when he popped the question. How thoughtful for a son to include us in that very special moment of his life. He even asked her dad for her hand in marriage, before popping the question Who said chivalry was dead. What an impressive young man. Such confidence and they are so much in love. They really remind me of me and his father when we were young and just starting out.
Her mom and me have so much in common. We laughed so much and I felt like I’ve known her forever we are so much alike. We played games at the house and stayed overnight at their home in Maryland. He’s really marrying into a wonderful family and it is so reassuring that they will be close to them for a support system. Her father is an amazing carpenter and hunter. I’m sure Connor will learn a lot from him. So that is going to be a wonderful celebration later this year !!! Oh yeah, she is also an amazing ballerina on Richmond Ballet. In fact that’s how they met. She was his Juliet and he was her Romeo. What a great beginning for a love story ❤
A really sweet couple. We love you two and can hardly wait to get back out there to be with all of you !!! What a great looking couple ❤ We both thought that this is how it was going to end up from the first time we saw them together. We just knew 😉
Then I will be celebrating my 60th birthday this August…I’m not sure how I feel about that b/c I just always thought 60 was so far away. I’m the last one out of our circle of close friends to turn 60.
We have been friends since almost when we were married. They got married right after us, and then we were neighbors. Scott was in dental school and all the rest of us were just working. The husband was working on his MBA and I was an administrative asst. at the railroad. Cheryl was a teacher at the local high school. Neither of us had any kids yet. Now almost 40 years later Scott is a dentist. They had 3 daughter’s, and we had 4 son’s and a daughter.
We had our babies together. In fact we were both pregnant together and had our babies within hours of each other. That was a fun story. She wanted to beat me and have her baby before me because she wanted to be all done with the pain (this was back in the day before epidurals and they thought breathing was a good way to control the pain, N O T !!!). I of course didn’t want that to happen but my due date was almost 2 weeks after hers. Thank goodness I was always early in delivering my babies and this was no different. I had my baby girl and right after I delivered I called her to tell her. She answered the phone and heard me and the first thing she said was, “I’m in labor.” I could hear her smiling, thinking she had beat me…Then the first thing I said to her after that was, “I had a girl…hahahahahaha.” It was such great moment. We are still the closet of friend’s, more like sisters. I love ya, Cheryl ❤ and I know your just loving it that I’m turning 60 😉 .
Finally also in August we will be celebrating 40 glorious years of marriage ❤ We will be taking a trip out Northwest to British Colombia and Tofina, Canada… I am dying to see those mountains and drive through them. We will also be staying by the Pacific Ocean. We usually go out East, but this time we are going west. I’m hoping we can even make it to Alaska.
Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
