Blessing and Court

We had a weekend filled with events which helped keep my mind off of timelines.  We had a fund raiser on Friday and Sunday.  We also took more pics to send to B.   

Today would have been my mom's birthday.  I have written before about her.  There are a handful of days that have not gotten easier - this being one.  It just got brighter, though.  I have been thinking a lot about her.  She would have loved getting to know B.  She would have been so very excited.  It seems so right that we would have gotten our court date on her birthday.  She would have wanted to be involved. 

COURT DATE: May 25.

That is so neat that you got it that day. We got our "you've passed court" on my grandpa's birthday. He has been fighting cancer so it was special to us!
