There have been some good travels on my road to
since my last post
and funny
but one very sad thing that I found out about
will actually HELP me get there more then I realized
(details not important)
but in a very strange way it has allowed me to realize
time to move on and BE
so putting all that aside
I am headed to Utah to see my kids and grandkids
what could be more zippidy-doo-dah-ish
then that
I will be with them for American Thanksgiving
and since I won't be able to be with them for Christmas
we call it
TURKMAS !!!!!!
(because we are creative and brilliant like that)
I'll get to do a lot of this
So, I won't be able to visit many blogs over the next two weeks
you understand...right?
I'll catch up with you all when my arms have rested
from all the hugging I intend to do
on that same note of HAPPY
Funniest show ever
I laugh till I nearly pee my pants
guess I AM turning into a bit of a REd NeCk
it's all good
like I said
I am learning to


Dixie Mom said...

Have a ton of fun on your trip!! And enjoy your Turkmas!!

mCat said...

I love you. That's all I can find to say right now...... LOVE.YOU!

Shelia said...

Have a great time, Wendy, with your family! Glad you're moving on to Happy! It's hard for me to imagine you any other way. We'll be here when you get back.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

dana said...

Have fun with your family. . .and I know that's a given with you!

Turkmas. . .too cute.

It's so rough (huge understatement) to move to Happy after just a loss. . .but I know your loved one would the first to tell you to do it. It took me years to get over the anniversary day of this or that when we lost an infant. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose an adult child. 24 years ago, my dad dies, then 8 months later. . .my 40 year old sister. I don't know how my mom made it, but she did. You just deal with what life dishes out the best you can. Some of the days are good and some aren't. . .but you certainly know all of that.

Anyway, so glad you are going to enjoy an American Thanksgiving!!

L, Dana

Have fun! I miss our Turkmas days at your house!!

" Hit It......." said...

I am so excited that you will get to be with your family. I agree with MCat...LOVE YOU. :)

Becky said...

Turkmas - how delightful! Hope you have a very wonderful time. I imagine you will be super busy ... if you are free on a Monday - would love you to stop by our mom's group.

C'est moi Claudette said...

Duck Dynasty?? WTW?? I have no idea what that is. Leave it to you to find something like that Wendy girl.
I know you will have the best time with your sweet family. I know you will be missing Matt again this year, but you will feel his wonderful presence around you all the time your there.
I'm watching "UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN", so sweet and so beautiful. I wish all the girls could go to a villa and sit around drinking wine and talk and cry and laugh together. That would be my wish. Maybe one day.
Ok, don't make me cry. I LOVE YOU BGF.

We all need to learn to just BE.

Enjoy your combination holiday..You ARE creative, like that....if you happen to get bored...haha, give me a call!

Andrea TheBloggingMama said...

We LOVE Duck Dynasty. The catching frogs at Willies golf club episode - oh my goodness.

I love DD night!

Mimi Sue said...

OK that is the funniest show ever! I am totally hooked on it. I'd like to invite Uncle Si over for dinner and just listen to him talk! Glad you're on your way to a happier place. When you drive by Kaysville wave. Enjoy those grandkids! Mimi

I'm glad that you are feeling happy & that you get a chance to visit your kids and your grandkids. I have a friend who loves Duck Dynasty because they remind her of her family- gotta watch it one of these days!
Have a great Thanksgiving!

heather said...

Duck Dynasty is a new favorite around our house too! We laugh so hard through the whole thing... I'm not ready to admit to being a redneck myself, but my husband is for sure!

Shelia said...

Hi Wendy! Thanks for popping in to see me and I'm going to check out the Duck Dynasty. I'm seeing so many friends on FB that are loving it. I don't want to miss out!
Hope you're doing well.

I have GOT to see that show Wendy! If you like it I know I will.

I am so glad to actually 'hear' the happy in this post. I know you have been on quite a journey, and I know that the journey has been painful and it has sucked the energy from every part of your being, but Wendy will be back stronger and more beautiful than ever. This I KNOW!
sending love to you...

I've been browsing online greater than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

You can always put a smile on my face dear friend with your words - can I come live next door.. I bet we both could keep each other in the Happy mood... with stories of our grand kids --- wink! Be safe and hug them - tons...

Wendy, It has been an age since I visited your blog. I'm sorry. I love what you are feeling and I know all the love and hugs with your family re-enforced your HAPPY.

I followed you on FB and your American Thanksgiving was a blessing.

I am hoping you received a small package that I sent you. If you and Barry ever were able to visit us I will cook and bake for you with so much pleasure. If only you could.

Love you bunches.
Jeanne xoxoxo

PS: I'm back to say how welcome Barry's mom would be as well. I mean it my darling sista friend.

Me again. xoxoxo

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like
you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
