I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

As I sit and wait for our facilitator to give us a date when we can come, I think about my earrings. I have earrings that weren't meant to be special, but they have become so. You can see them in this picture:
They are simple little heart earrings that are either black or navy blue, I've never really checked to see which. But I've worn them on these special days:

My high school graduation
My college graduation
Meeting my daughter for the first time
Meeting Reese for the first time
Meeting Nikolai for the first time
Getting married (inside my gown - lol).

I was looking at them in my jewelry thing in the bathroom and imagining wearing them on the day that I first meet Simon. Sometimes I think that day might not ever come, but I know it will. They probably cost under $10 way back when I was in high school, but they still look great and are really important to me, having been with me on all of my most special days.

It's not important, and probably not anything worth blogging about, but I was missing Simon and thought I'd put those thoughts down. Makes me feel a tiny bit closer to him.

Can't you call or email your facilitator? ;)

Missy said...

I e-mailed her yesterday. Usually she's really good about getting back to me, but so far, nothing...

How was court? I couldn't sleep last night and I noticed that it was 10am your time and prayed for you. Did everything go beautifully??

Missy, Simon is so adorable the picture of him just captures the happiness you will feel when all of you are together. I think of you often and follow your blog when I get a few extra minutes on a computer here. I am praying for you and your beautiful family. I tried to write to your private e-mail address you sent but it goes to page unknown.Rhonda

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
