Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you just have to just let go and Believe.
Mother’s Day has been bittersweet since my mom’s passing. Growing up, she and I didn’t always get along. I was independent from the time I could dress myself.
Being a child in the 70’s meant that plaid pants & a tie dye body suit was an outfit, at least in my mind. She let me go with it though & throughout my childhood, was there for me and my siblings. Cupcakes in ice cream cones for the school bake sale, funnel cakes in an electric skillet at the school fair, potluck dinners at Camp Osborn Boy Scout camp. Too many activities really to mention but she was always ready to go and be there, even if it was outside her comfort zone.
I had a phone call a few weeks ago from a person I hadn’t talked to in quite some time. She told me that she had a very vivid dream I had a given birth to a baby (gasp!) and asked if I had something to tell her. I assured her that Clark and I were still proud parents of the greyhounds, but no, there was no human baby to report. We had a good laugh and caught up on life but wow! Having a baby at my age is not something I’d want.
It hit me after we hung up, though. I actually have had a baby. Clark and I are the proud parents of Unicoi Preserves. Looking at the time we have been working to make a business out of a hobby hasn’t been pain-free but its also a very joyous time.
Stayed tuned and watch our little baby grow. The sun is just starting to rise over the mountains in Sautee
