Other

I'VE MISSED MY FRIENDS FROM SCHOOL OVER THE YEARS BUT I HAVE THOUGHT OF YOU OFTEN, YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE. BEING A SINGLE MOM FROM TIME TO TIME AND THE MANY MILES THAT SEPARATED ME FROM DUNDALK, HASN'T ALLOWED ME TO MAKE IT HOME FOR RE-UNIONS. BY THE TIME WE ALL GET TOGETHER WE'LL ALL BE COMPLETELY GRAY (I'M ALMOST THERE) I THANK GOD FOR MY HEALTH THOUGH. THE MOST REWARDING ROLE I HAVE PLAYED WAS THAT OF MOTHER. YOU KNOW THE OBNOXIOUS MOTHER WHO BRAGS ABOUT HER KIDS...THERE IS NOTHING MORE FULFILLING THAN YOUR CHILDREN. THE BEST PART OF GRANDCHILDREN...SPOIL THEM ROTTEN AND SEND THEM HOME. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY LIVE SO FAR, I ONLY SEE PICTURES.
