January 1st...2004

            A lifetime ago, literally...here's Kimmy's take on that New Year's Day:

            January 1, 2004

             Happy New Year!  Wow!  Where did 2003 go ?!  Ringing it in with our family of 5.  We went to the Hoffman's and watched Bruce Almighty and enjoyed steak Diane (one of Shawn's amazing dishes).  We all felt very old trying to stay awake until midnight!!  May we all be blessed this year.

           January 15, 2004

            Antonio is wobbly - but now sits up!  He can pull himself up from lying down position - wow!  he's so proud of his accomplishments - as are we.
           We just had his 6 month check up - doing great and weighing in at 16 1/2 lbs. of pure honey : ) .

           It's so nice to look back on what Kimmy wrote - I love her hand writing.  And her enthusiasm.  And optimism...something she taught us all, well.    I wish she had started it earlier and kept going with it - but, we found ourselves too busy...and time went so fast.  So I feel blessed to have what I have...

          Spent the night with my southwest family, Mark, Andrea, Janene, Kim, Rashon and all of the kids at the ballpark tonight, watching Janene's son, Brendon play in the Rincon Little League championships...Brendon's team won game 1, but needed to take two to win and lost the second game.  It was a full night of baseball on a beautiful night...and the kids had so much fun running around together...very relaxing...

Quest' la vita e qui il gioire, un' ora di abbrezzo e poi moire -- This is life and this is joy: an hour of embracing and then to die.

  1. The great thing is that through Kim's blog, you are continuing "her Journal" when she no longer can. As a mother myself, it would give me great comfort knowing that you were continuing to record the memories that happen day to day. I'll bet she smiles with each new entry you write! :)And I agree...it was Kim's optimism that was one of her best traits. :)
