Endings and Beginnings

It has been a time of cousin Chris died suddenly.  A year younger then me.  It makes you think........
Chris and Jeri

And niece Lydia just graduated and is preparing to enter college @ Eckerd University.  She is a very talented artist.  She will be near her Aunts, Kim and Karen, my sisters, and her cousins.  I am sure this will include the start of new traditions in the events of family.  I look forward to that!!

she had this to say about her years in school......

"I don't think I'll miss being a part of a system that is more concerned with how much information I can regurgitate on paper and how many hours I sit, idly or not, in a building under the guise of learning. I don't think I'll miss the Americanized, industrialized form of public education that has enveloped the last 13 years of my life and has nearly burnt out my motivation, my curiosity, my creativity, and my general desire to learn and explore. I'll miss caring educators like Paul Gantt and all of the other mentors, family members, and friends that have encouraged me to grow, though I don't think I'm alone in saying that graduation has been long overdue for some time."

I found her comments a bit sad and hope her new beginnings @ college inspire her quite a lot more.
We are beginning the start of the Summer season.  My season!!!  I love summer, it includes my birthday.  I will be entering the end of my 50's.  I have ended a long term relationship.  I am getting to know my self, by my self again.  It feels like I have spent a lot of my life alone, searching for "that perfect something."  The events of these last several weeks have enlightened is happening now!!!  Don't Wait!!  Go for it, start now, appreciate every moment.  It is the time of Day Lily's and Rhododendrons strong and resilient.  Bright.  I love that too!!

At MoonMaid we are going through changes as well.  We are discontinuing a couple of things and are making new items.   Our face serum is almost complete.  You love our soap, it is flying off the shelves, so we have created BathBliss Soaking Salts in the very same unique scent - our special combination of essential oils and flower essences.  If you have enjoyed Dianne's Homemade....get it now @ 50% off.  Write "50%" in the "COMMENT" box @ checkout.
