THE BEST MOTHERS' DAY EVER!

This has been probably the most wonderful Mother's Day in my life.  My 4 children at home, with help from their father, prepared breakfast for me, and after eating we sat around the table talking about old times.  Memories were just flowing, wonderful memories about wonderful times.  Looking around the table I know how fortunate I am to be the mother of these characters.

I am a grandmother!  I spoke to Gabe at around midnight and he told me that his ex-girl friend gave birth to little Zachary on the 4th of December.  Needless to say Gabe will not be coming home in June as planned but will be going to see his son instead.  I am soooooo happy that my worst fears proved wrong.  I don't know what happens next, where they will go from here as far as their relationship goes.  I just hope that Kayle will allow us to remain in Zachary's life now that we know about him. 

To Kayle, I wish you an extra special Mother's Day.  Thank you for filling the hole in my heart and healing the pain.  Gabriel, Zachary, Arthur, Rebecca and Rachel, you are my  joy and the very purpose of my life, thank you.  I love you all more than words could ever say.  I am so proud to be your mother. 

Agh!  This is sooo mushy I can barely stand it, but I'm on the top of the world right now.  I feel like Julie Andrews from the Sound of Music, standing in the meadow on top of the mountain, spinning around with my hands in the air and singing with pure exuberance.  I am a grandmother, and I have a grandbaby named Zachary!

Okay, do you know what it's like to get all teary eyed with a cold gel eye mask on?! Well, now I do at least.......

Happy Mumsy's day Dorn!!! :)

(I look like a sad excuse for a super hero with this thing on, but it said it could lessen the circles and puffiness under my eyes.)

What a terrific Mother's Day, Dorn. Congratulations on the new little grandson. The first step has been taken in letting little Zachary into your family's lives so here's hoping that you'll get to see and hold him real soon. It would be nice to see a pic posted in the future. Mary
