Happy Day, Sad Day
|Yeah, he's pretty hot!|
Today is big Hopson's birthday. Happy Birthday to Honey Daddy! I love that man & sometimes he drives me crazy. I guess that's how it is when you've been married for almost two decades. :) He hates for us to draw attention to him on his birthday; he would be happy to just let it pass with no fanfare, cake or gifts. Whatever! I need cake, it makes me happy. He just wants to be in the woods, so I let him go.
Today is also another special day. It's my mother's angelversary. She has been in heaven 15 years today. 3:31 pm is the exact time, just in case you're wondering. I have been the matriarch of my family for 15 years. I never wanted that role. I still don't want it. I would rather have my mom back, faults and all. (except when my kiddos trash the house) Hopson and I ended up buying my parents' house, and I can hear her complaining about how it looks. She would stay up until the wee hours of the night cleaning; um yeah, not me. I need my sleep.
But every December 30th I think of Hopson all day & my momma in passing. It's more fun to focus on the present & life than looking in the rear view mirror of the past. You know, you're only supposed to glance in the rear view mirror anyway, so I will look ahead, and every so often glance behind and remember.
It's a great day to celebrate a birthday!
