Holidays 2009

It is once again the ending of another year...a year of changes, of realizations and the idea of living...

This has been a rough year...more for emotions and feelings, for watching Nicholas change and grow..and Cory move on with his life as an adult.

Cory is now in Taiwan with a mission of teaching English to the young ones. He loves it and is working many hours and exploring a new country and culture. Do not think for a minute he does not miss us or isn't homesick for a good burger, Belagios Pizza or just being at home with Nick and I...but he is growing up and learning and finding out what he wants in life and learning to be a man..his Dad would be so proud

Nicholas has taken on the task of dog tender, Christmas tree installer, locking the doors at night and making sure Mom knows how much he loves her...I so appreciate him and so have learned the many gifts and kindness that make up this wonderful 17 yr old. He has always been the one to give up his favorite game system to help a family that has had a fire, to share his coats with other kids, to pull weeds and help the elderly and recently to send some coveted and loved wooden trains to 2 little boys who mother has suffered an accident that has brought her hurt and pain yet she continues to live and strive for her family. He gives up his paycheck with love and buys milk with want...he is my rock and assures me we will be OK..always.

I shouldn't be amazed at the wonders of my boys, they had a fantastic, loving, teaching and proud Dad who gave to them tools and abilities to help and be a productive and proud part of community...he continues to shine thru Nick and Cory and their achievements and their abilities as they grow into men....
