Teen Jessica & Perspective

Hello!! Been a long while, hasn't it?? So sorry! Just been going through a mid mid-life crisis! LOL things are a tad difficult but getting through it slowly.....

My baby Jessica turned 13 today!! Feeling old you ask? YUP! Life goes by too quickly to not learn to appreciate the little things in every day life.... For example, we were suppose to spend the day together on Wednesday - apparently, it ain't gonna happen! She is on the phone as I type making plans! Wow! Feeling like I will end up alone soon... or with about 20 cats purring at my feet! LOL

Here is one of the dozen pages I have been creating... some of which will never make this blog! LOL This one should give you an idea of things going through my mind lately... hopefully this will in some way help to make you understand my neglect towards all of you!! Again........ I AM SO SORRY!

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

More to come later this week...... :)
