Three Things

By Lao Tzu

" I have just three things to teach
Simplicity, Patience, Compassion
these things are your greatest treasures"

It has been a while since I blogged about things going on with myself and family so I thought I would update our year so far.

As you know our son attended his first year of college at UC Santa Cruz and it was a good year for him he did really well so well in fact that by January he was taking second year courses and this fall he will have almost completed one major he is majoring in Anthropology and Legal Studies. he and his girlfriend broke up( which happens) and he is doing very well he is home with us for the summer got his job back and will be taking a vacation today with one of his aunts.. then of course back to Santa Cruz in September I enjoy visiting him and getting to know that nice little city. Our Daughter is still beautiful as ever she just finished her junior year so we are headed into our looking at colleges mode once again. She is also working and is still amazing.
My husband and I are doing the same ol thing, working and spending time with each other when we can, sure we see each other every night but our quality time is weekends. we took some hiking trips and little day trips here and there and hopefully will do a little more this summer. as usual we will see a few concerts. I am now on my mini vacation from work I begin again on the 31st so I am hoping to catch up with family members. This week a day trip to beach with my daughter and a movie, some appointments to take care of things apparently I have a little bit of a bleeder in my eye so waiting to see specialist, daughter is getting braces on Sat. finshing up some major cleaning around the house and next week another day trip with kids, lunch with some special people and then it will be back to work to begin another school year. I guess time really does fly by!!!

with you

With you I can be strong , I can be weak
I can be courageous , I can be afraid.
I can be everything I want to be and I can be most vulnerable with you. ..
I can be my self.
