365 Days of Happiness (349/365)

We’re home from Franklin and Marshall Parent’s weekend.  My mind is full of Erin’s smiles.  Oh man.  No one tells you when they place that little bundle of joy in your arms the day they are born — about they day they will leave home.  How their smiles become the most important things to you.  That they are miles and miles away…but happy.  It’s all that matters.


This peaceful Sunday night, I spend a bit of it thinking about my destiny as a mom.  So many nights rocking a feverish baby.  Then up in the middle of the night – chasing bad dreams away.  Then — in a flash — you are sitting at graduation wondering — “Where did it all go??”

My grown daughters are my babies.  And now, they are my friends.  And interesting people.  Kind hearted people.  I can’t wait until I can see them again.

Until then — I’ll continue to be their soft place to land.  And fill my days with….all that comes next.

Life is wonderful.  #ChooseHappiness365 (349/365)

Ciao for now…Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
