Today at 4:28 pm my baby will turn 19. Even as I type this post I can hardly beieve it is true. I truly don't know where the time has gone. I can remember so clearly the day that he was born and how much joy he brought to our family.
We could not have been prouder of him as he grew into a joyous, thoughtful, sensitive, fun loving, energetic teenager.
We watched again with all the pride in the world as he developed into a strong, dedicated athlete.
And in a few weeks we will watch as he completes his high school career and graduates on to college.
Sweet Child of Mine--Sweet Love of Mine---I wish you the happiest of Birthdays. I have been truly blessed having you as my son.
About Dandelion Wishes--Why a Dandelion you ask???
As I was contemplating starting my blog and opening my etsy shop, many thoughts swam in my head. What would I write about, what would I sell and what in the world would I call my blog and shop? Oh I had a list of names--which one should I choose? I finally decided on Dandelion Wishes. Why that name you ask? Why a dandelion--they are such a nuisance poking their little yellow heads right out into the beautiful green grass. Then there are those little white seed parachutes floating over my lawn just looking for a place to land and grow more little yellow heads in my beautiful grass. If I would have stopped at that thought I never would have choosen the dandelion to represent my blog. Who want's to be known as a nuisance?? Not me. As I stopped and really looked at the little yellow flower, I discovered that it is really quite beautiful. With it's many petals and it's happy yellow color I found it to be really very cheery. And then the thought struck me. There are many things that come into our lives that at first we consider a nuisance. But if we really stop to think about them, often they can become a thing of beauty--teaching lessons and helping us to grow and mature in our lives. I couldn't think of a better name for my blog and shop. It helps to remind me to stop and see the beauty in all situations, to ask myself what lesson I am to be learning, and how does this situation help me to grow into a better person. I wish that for all of you my friends as well. Thank you for visiting Dandelion Wishes. I hope you enjoy your stay.
