The Day My Heart Was Filled With More Love Than I Thought Possible…

11 years ago today I was still at Edinboro University, finishing up my 2nd to last month of undergraduate work….

I went back to living in the dorm that semester after having lived in a house with 3 of my best friends…

Me and my roomies plus Brian our shoulda been 5th roommate...

My class load was heavy… I was deep in the throes of my 2nd student teaching placement…

I worked 40 hours a week at Wood Catering Company…

Any and all free time that wasn’t already dedicated to school work was spent at the Boro Bar with my pals, at the Hockey House or  Hockey games…..

At one of MANY hockey games supporting our fellas!

or painting the town red with my Kennywood pals…

Break time!

 

Grove Party at the park after hours....

 

night out after work....

 

Yes, at the time I thought wearing PLEATHER pants was a good idea!

11 years ago today my nephew Brenden Shane was born…

11 years ago today my heart was filled with more love than I thought possible…

The 1 month old peanut at my graduation from Edinboro

Bringing smiles to our faces always…

Making us laugh every minute of every day…

Warming our hearts with tender moments…

 

 

The sheer pleasure we receive in watching you grow…

 

the always sweet, handsome, intelligent, sincere and caring young fella …

leaving me to be so proud of the AMAZINGLY AWESOME big brother you are…

and fantastically phenomenal nephew you are…

So very blessed to have you in my life B-Shane… And so very proud to call you my nephew…

 

EVEN more proud though I get to be called “Aunt Mae” by you… and with every time I hear you say it, I can still hear your wee little tiny voice calling me Mae Mae….

Happy 11th Birthday Brenden Shane!  I am so very proud of you and love you bunches!!!!

Random act of kindness

Ever been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of an act of kindness?

It is a pretty cool thing, let me tell ya.

Yesterday I received a card in the mail… no return address, no signature.

Enclosed in the envelope was a gift card for a local grocery store and only two words inside…

love you.

Whomever was so kind as to send me this anonymous love holds a special place in my heart…  whether you are family, friend or both… a friend of a friend, a church member or a complete random… your act of kindness brought tears to my eyes and happiness in my heart.

Happiness not for the gift card contained inside, but for the notion that there are truly good people in the world… even more so that I am blessed by having truly good people in my life.

For nothing other than that, I am thankful.

So to whomever sent this anonymous love my way…

Love you too!

And

THANK YOU

from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you

My family is over run with boys… and all things blue for that matter. 🙂

I’ve got 4 nephews with #5 on the way in July.

One lone niece.

Love ’em each all the same, BUT…
