My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Happy Birthday my baby girl~

My Snortie Bugar!
A.K.A~ Courtney Rae

I thought I was carrying a boy and had mostly boy's names picked out. Soooooo, I was so surprised when you came out a GIRL!
When I looked at you, I thought.................she looks like charlie brown! Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllll, I did! Cuz you did;););););););););)
After they cleaned you up (back in the olden days that's how they did it;), I held you (opps I just teared up, I'm getting so emotional in my old age) and nursed you right away, this, this almost indescribable feeling of your spirit filled me and I instantly fell deeply in love with you and I have that same EXACT feeling to this day when I think of you or see you. It's magical!
You were, are and will always be my baby!
You have grown into a strong young woman and lovely, doting mother! I am proud of you and always know that I am here for you no matter what life throws your way!
Happy Birthday my darling baby girl!

Our eldest son celebrates his birthday today, so what a happy coincidence that I read this lovely tribute on this day.

She is who she is because she was obviously raised in a caring, loving home. Kudos to you for guiding her...you did good!
