Dearest fair maidens, dashing divas and glamorous gals,
This won't be a long post, it's more of an update than anything. My bornday (which I share with my mother) was September 6th. It was kind of difficult for me because my mother passed away December of 2009. This was the first bornday without her and I have to say, the weeks leading up to our bornday found me crying more often than not. I miss her physical presence terribly. September 7th was my daughter's sweet 16th bornday...yes, I have a 16 year old daughter (and a 15 year old Sun). Despite my emotional state, she had a great day :-)
My best friend in the whole wide world (who just happens to be my ex-boyfriend) helped me, my Sun and my daughter celebrate our borndays. He took us to dinner, had a custom made cake for us, and bought us all very special gifts perfectly suited to our tastes. He has made this the best bornday ever for me, truly he has. I am very blessed and fortunate to have him in my universe because he is just the most wonderful, kindest, most generous and special man I have ever known.
On a sad note, yesterday was my brother Bryan's 26th bornday and he had a stroke in the early morning hours. This is perhaps his 4th or 5th stroke in the past 3 years I believe. He's paralyzed on the right side of his body and cannot speak. I ask that if you are a praying person that you please keep him in yours.
Due to all that's going on right now, I'm afraid I must suspend the give away I had planned for this month. I'm sure you'll all understand. I'm not sure when I'll post again so please bear with me.
Thanks for understanding and thanks in advanced for keeping my brother Bryan in your prayers.
