Driving My Disabled Son Around Makes Him Happy, and I’ve Made Money!

Wish You Were Here

My youngest, Jonathan can’t travel long distances due to his medical condition, so he will stay home with grandma, grandpa, and auntie Mel. Leaving Johnny behind is a horrible feeling. As a mom, I want all my kids with me all the time. I miss him terribly already!! But if I don’t go, I will regret not going, and I will regret not giving Sara and Ben opportunities to grow socially and culturally. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Ben since he moved in with his dad 6 years ago, which has broken my heart.
So, I’m off to London today with Sara and Ben!! We have a layover in the north west (no, not Kim Kardashian’s baby! hahahaha), then straight away to Heathrow! Praying for safe travel and smooth flying! I will see you soon London! I will see you in 17 days my sweet Johnny xoxo

I’m Going To London!

Only 6 days until I leave for London! I can’t wait!! I bought this flat iron at Boots the first time I went to London, 6 years ago. I had my travel converter, but my flat iron from the States still managed to blow out the power in my ENTIRE hotel, eeeeek, that was really embarrassing :/

This trip means a lot to me. I’m taking my son who’s 17 and my daughter who is 20. I’ve never taken my son out of the country before, and Sara and I can’t wait to share our love of England with him! I hope Ben’s experience in England will change his life and perspective on his life as it did for my daughter and I. 🙂

Johnny laid on me in the recliner while we watched the Stanley Cup Play off’s, Montreal vs. NY Rangers. Johnny would close his eye’s at times. Sometimes he would just lift his head and rest his chin on my chest and look at me and smile. Look at his beautiful wavy hair, and his cute button nose! Can you tell I’m in love? I’ve never known such a love as this before 🙂 (not that I don’t love my other two kids, hahahaha!)

Signs Of Happy Times

These ugly cookie sheets mean more to me than a mess to clean up! It reminds me of all the years my mom spent with me, teaching me how to bake. My 3 children (ages 20, 17, 11) still love to help me in the kitchen, or at least be the first to take a hot cookie off the cooling rack!

I took a 1/2 dozen to my nail girl today. Want to know a way to an angry, hurt or lonely person? HOME MADE COOKIES!

Ps. I will be blogging a new, fantastic cookie recipe very soon! (peanut butter with Nutella, swirl!)
