Sorry this is posting late this week. We've had a busy weekend and I didn't get a chance to sit down to write.
Last week was a sad week. Hearing that Robin Williams lost his battle with depression made it difficult to smile much. Suffering from depression myself, hearing of his death really hit close to home. I spent a lot of the week in denial and each morning a logged into my Facebook account, I was hit again with the news of his death. This went on for several days.
Maybe it seems silly to be hit so hard by a celebrity's death. Someone I've never met before. One of my cousin's said it best:
"Losing Robin Williams is like everyone in the world just lost their crazy uncle at the same time."
Thankfully, a busy weekend helped in keeping me from dwelling on it much longer and gave me a few things to smile about:
- Great friends. We are truly blessed with wonderful friends. Always here to lend a hand with the house, listen to our troubles, celebrate happy times, or just plain spoil Grace.
- Family. We had a family event over the weekend. Life gets busy and everyone's work schedules get in the way, it's nice when we're all able to get together for some good food and conversation.
- First Birthdays and cousins. My youngest niece turned one over the weekend (see family event listed above). She is so adorable...all babies are, I know! Grace, who normally keeps a big distance from babies, really enjoyed playing with her cousin and we all loved seeing them interact with each other.
- Twinkle Toes. Last week, we hit the dollar kiddie movie again. Six adults and one kid! That alone made me laugh, but just trying to get all of us together and out the door so early was something out of a comedy movie! During a slower part of the movie, Grace was a little bored and decided to tap her toes on the floor. It was funny to see her Twinkle Toes sneakers lighting up the dark theater!
Hoping you all had a happy week with lots of smiles! I'd love for you to share by leaving a comment!
