Just some ramblings today to document and share life on Newark-Granville Road.....right now I listen to Peter playing the trumpet to psych himself up for the Michigan game...yes in the midst of all this Ohio State world I have a Michigan fan. He just walked by with a blue and yellow helmet, blue and yellow sweats and a red jacket playing...da-da-da-da-d...lets go blue....as his Mom I'm just pleased I can tell the tune and it makes me smile not cover my ears!
Great morning at work- such talent, such incredible volunteers, such good energy of learning all @ The Works!!! Connections galore too- figure eights working well!
Neighbors helping neighbors means a great deal to me today too. I reached out for assistance and had immediate response- smiles with tears- lots of pain out there but progress, laughter and smiles mixed in to help healing and provide hope.
On facebook last night I posted the picture I put out on the blog just now- Matthew Watson Stoner- my brother- 16 months younger than me. Clare and Peter are 18 months apart...love how I replicated my family pattern- my sister Sarah and our daughter Sarah are the "babies"! Someone said recently I don't talk as much about Matthew as I do Sarah. No reasons for this- I love them each deeply and am grateful and can't wait for them to arrive...Tgiving in Gville! So another smile- a photo from a beach tradition the ferry to Ocracoke- Matthew and Dawn- love them!
Oh and last night's movie night- we ended up with "Firehouse Dog" Clare dvr-ed it and it was darling..I cried, laughed smiled with my babies. Life on Newark-Granville Road is just like that but usually ends up with smiles one way or another.
