Peach State says: A Day of Farewells
Posted by justbetweencousins
Today was supposed to be a day to drive 2 hours and retrieve my 20 year old. But, like sands in the hour glass, plans change. I will be dropping off my youngest and a friend at the Back To School Bash for a day of sun and fun at the lake. I will then head over to the local watering hole and wait for about 20 minutes before heading back over toward the church to pick up a bulletin board ( secret project ) and then turn my car around and head to my very dear friend’s house.. This is a tough weekend for the mom in this family…She is saying goodbye to her college bound son!
A Day Of Farewells!
I will help her get the house ready and prepare some finger foods for a cast-off of sorts for this incredible young man. Things will be very different around their house without this young man. I have so much to do before heading out early this morning so I must go…
Coffee to drink…not to mention a shower, loading of the dishwasher and waking of the troops. What a way to start the weekend!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
About justbetweencousinsWe are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
