Happy Father's Day to my hubby The Bee!

I would like to say Happy Father's Day to my hubby who I have lovingly called The Bee for numerous years. A lot of people ask me what does his knickname mean. Well, Bee is short for honey bee :)

25 years ago I gave birth to our daughter and the very next day was Father's Day! So if you ask my hubby what his favorite Father's Day gift was, he will definately tell you...his daughter J. Now here we are 25 years later and my wonderful hubby is a grandfather to our precious 13 month old grand-daughter Lil G.

Anyway...Happy Father's Day to all of the wonderful dads out there!

Happy Birthday To My Daughter!!!

Wow...I can't believe one and only child, my daughter J...officially turned 25 years old today. So let me say...Happy Birthday J!!!

We spent the afternoon with our daughter and grand-daughter Lil G eating a late lunch and then a big fat ice cream cake! I enjoyed having them here for a visit and I am very impressed with my daughter's mothering skills...she is a fantastic mom to Lil G and you can tell that Little G is a total mommy's girl!

Tomorrow is Father's Day so we will all be getting together again and having another small party for my hubby! wootwoot!

Wordless Wednesday - My Faith

okay...not really wordless but wanted to share. I was recently in the hospital for quite some time and I must admit, our faith is what gets me and my family through difficult times.

I found great comfort when I would sit in front of this statue & scene in our hospital lobby at Holy Spirit Hospital. I love to sit there and pray. I find it peaceful.

Tucker and Liberty - Therapy Dogs!

I was in the hospital for 19 days back in May and while I was in there, I met 2 new special friends...Tucker and Liberty! These 2 special dogs are therapy dogs over at Holy Spirit Hospital and they come into the hospital once a week to bring smiles to the patients faces.

Tucker is the smaller dog...I just adored Tucker! He would come up into my hospital bed with me and allow me to snuggle all over him.

Liberty is the bigger dog aka the lab and she was just beautiful! She wears a tutu collar around her neck which I think is just too cute!

I must admit, I looked forward to seeing Tucker and Liberty every week while I was in there and they definately brought smiles to my face.
