Wow it has been awhile since I last posted. I still look at that picture from a year ago and see my Dad and the past few weeks seem like a bad dream. The only problem is that I am a wake and know deep in my heart it is not. I still have moments of tears and sadness and probably will for a long time. Once again I would to thank all of you who are putting up with these moments.

Reconnection weekend! I am sure that you all are wondering what is up with that. Well through Face Book I reconnected with my Best Friend from High School Kecia. It has been many years(those of you wondering just how many about 25, yes now you stop wondering how young we are both 43) since we have talked and just hung out. I hopped in the car and went on a little road trip to Hendersonville. What a great town. Okay I know back to the subject. Well, yes it has been 25 years and we picked back up like no time had past. She is a wonderful mother two great girls Erica and Monica and a wonderful wife to Clark for 19 years. Man did we have a lot to talk about. Weddings, births of babies, babies, young childhood of children, teenager years for children, our brothers and sisters(she is the baby of 8), parents, good times, hard times, our GREAT times, churches and life in general. We sure did a lot of talking and looking at pictures. While we talked she show me around the great area she is now living in. Hey, I saw where Johnny Cash's house use to be before they burned it down while restoring it. We went and saw her parents where they were camping on Friday night and it turned into an adventure like we use to have back in HS, as they told us camp site 127 and it was only 27, so after we passed them a couple of times they called us and asked what we were doing. DUH looking for you...needless to say we were laughing about this. Then Sunday came and I will be the first to admit that saying GOODBYE was hard. We both have decided that we may have missed out on 25 years in the past, but we have 25 or more in the future that we can share and I am sure that we will. Of course I had my camera in the car and never thought to take it out to take pictures. I was really busy catching up. After I left her oldest daughter told her I know why you were friends in HS "You are just a like"! We do share the name of Michelle as that is her middle name.

Sunday I get a text(calling is like way to much for kids, I guess I can see how punching 2 buttons to call is way harder than typing it out:) from Stephenie to tell me that she is running a fever. So on the way home I am worried about her. Couldn't get into the Dr on Monday to many sick kids, so we went yesterday and she has Type A flu..yes that is the type the Swine Flu is. She will be out of school until Tuesday and please pray that she doesn't worsen.
