Happy Birthday Grandma!!

I had to title it Happy birthday Grandma, who turns 95 today! She is such an inspiration to me. I love her so much. She lives by herself, is independent and hardly takes medication she is so healthy. I hope to be like her when I get older!

Happy Valentines Day to you all! I hope you have a great day filled with love, happiness and friendship. To be honest, this isn't a big day for me. It is just a day to make sure you tell important people in your life that you love and appreciate them. I think we are too caught up in getting that perfect something that we forget to even say or show how much you care. I haven't gotten much, I just got Ella a Valentines book. I like to just commit to spending time with the people I care about instead of gifts! I like time. We are going to go to Great Wolf lodge tonight to take Ella swimming with her friend Aidan and my friend Adrianne and Kevin(Aidan's mom and dad). Ella loves to swim, so this should be a lot of fun! Then we have a lot going on over the weekend. We are celebrating a family friends heart on Saturday. It was one year ago he got a new heart, so we are celebrating his heart. Then Sunday we are celebrating my grandma's birthday. We have a lot of celebrating to do.

I wanted to tell Leisa, have a great trip, she may already be gone and not get this until she gets back but I hope you have a lot of fun!

I wanted to say hello to my mothers Tuesday meeting group. You know who you are! My mom says you all usually discuss my blog on Tuesdays after your meeting. Thank you for being there for my mom. She cherishes your group and has built some great frienships through this group. I am so glad she has you all to go to.

I better get going. I have a lot to do before this fun filled weekend. Again, Happy Valentines day everyone, Will you bee mine? hehe. I had to stick a cheesy line in there for V-day! all my love, shawndra

Happy Valentines Day Turner family!
Have a great weekend and cherish every moment of it. It is the time with loved ones that counts on days like today and all others, not he things we can materially give each other.

God bless, in my prayer as always!

I don't think it's just good Kansas living, but good Holyrood living! I hope your Grandma had a great day and make sure and tell her Happy BDay from all of us when you celebrate. I agree about the meaning of the day. But I think that special days in general have gotten to tied to the gift aspect. Being together is a much better gift than anything we could buy. Thanks for the Valentine wishes and same to you and the rest of the clan.

Happy Valentines Day Shawndra and Ella and Doug. I found you through Jennifer Irelands site. With two of my own young children at home it is hard to keep up sometimes but I have been reading and following.
You are right. We dont need gifts for Valentines Day. Me and my husband and kids are in love EVERY day. We dont need to buy expensive items to prove that. We prove it each day by being here... enjoying each other.. each laugh and each tear.
Hope you have a great time at the Lodge tomorrow night. Happy Birthday to your Gma as well!
Remember, look to your daughter for strength in those times of fear and doubt. Children are truly amazing and have such a healing quality in their innocence.
