I have had the Taylor Swift song MEAN playing in my head all day today! This week has been a whirlwind
some good things are finally taking shape that have been long overdue and then some bad things kind of hit the fan so to speak.
A relative was arrested and was front page news and then on the local news as well and instead of just keeping this relative in prayer some family members took it upon themselves to post and place their own opinion on FB without considering how it may affect the immediate people involved. and putting it out there for other relatives who live out of the area to know.
It saddens my heart that a blood relative could take pleasure in hurting their own family member such drama lately that is what all face book seems to be is drama! some people thrive on the drama for the attention others are just plain mean!
Life is to short to be bitter and hell bent on hurting someone when they are down. whatever happens I have let it be known to this particular relative that we love and pray for them. my relative that is in this alleged trouble I do not judge and I pray that it will all be OK for their immediate family's sake by that I mean the daughters and the spouse. For that is the best we can do to give support.
As I mentioned earlier things that have been in chaos for quite sometime are finally taking shape and I hope that they continue to do so.
Praying daily that the Lord will guide those "mean" people and teach them tolerance, patience and love.

As summer is now upon us I have been reflecting of the things I am hoping to do while on my summer vacation. some will be striking things off my bucket list. and others will be cause it's something I have always wanted to do and mostly I am going to be spontaneous and see what will take place.
The first big thing is that my only son is relocating to Seattle and instead of two hours away from our home he will now be 14 hours! don't get me wrong, I am excited for him he has a good job which transferred there, he has good friends and he already has a place to live. and of course we will face time on our iphones once a week as usual but my baby (which he will always be) has grown up and is such a fine man. I can't believe how the years have flown by but I am very blessed that he is such a caring hardworking individual and I wish I had more time this summer to enjoy hanging out he only had one day with us before he set off to a new chapter is his life, I am thankful for the time we had with him he is now in his second week of living in his new surroundings and loving it he can not wait for us to come and visit him he his already making a list of places for us to go.
My daughter had some major changes this spring/summer she broke off a three year relationship with her boyfriend I am so proud of her as painful as it is she knew it was the right thing to do in order for them both to be happy and so a new job for her as well and in about 6 months time she will be done with college and working towards med school. I know today is bittersweet for her, as she and her friend ( yes her ex boyfriend ) say good bye he is relocating to live with his grandparents in Az. I think it is a blessing that they were both able to remain friends.
My husband finished one of his trade schools and will begin the other in August it is kind of nice having time to spend vacation with him. tonight we are going out to the movies and in a few weeks we will be taking a mini road trip before I have to go back to work and school.
here are some of the things on my summer this and that to do list:
beach hang out day with one of my sisters
coffee with a dear friend
hang out shopping day with my daughter ( probably have a few of those)
continue redecorating my kitchen
making homemade wine for my first time
concerts ( Gordon lightfoot is one, oldie but goodie)
I hope my dear blogger friends have a fun summer of this and that.
