~ 145 ~ Thank you, PINTEREST, for inspiring me to stuff black leotards with tiny pumpkins! (pics to follow when I find the appropriate equipment)...
~ 146 ~ the large window in my kitchen, allowing LOTS of warm sunlight to fill it each and every morning. Its the warmest room in the house!

~ 149 ~ the weathered bench, that's currently perched on the deck, under said large window in the kitchen, just BEGGING for something to adorn it
~ 150 ~ a new month
She's been on my mind the last couple days. Truthfully, my thoughts don't often include her, and until recently, I haven't given her much thought. I did try once, sometime in the past, to try and re-locate her, but it didn't work. I didn't try very hard, either.
She's been on my mind since the kids' playmate and her mommy entered our lives. When she shared her story with me, and I was moved to tears over it, I was inspired again to find her.
At least, to let her know that she has grandbabies- two of them, and they are both girls.
I am not interested in pursuing anything further than that; I have just been thinking it might be nice for her to know that her only child, now a mother herself, has made her a grandmother. Even though I didn't give her, back in my teenage years, exactly what she was looking for, maybe I can make up for lost time- in a way- by letting her know where I am at in my life. Maybe she would consider it cruel, telling her she's a grandmommy and not learn a single thing further than that, with the news I want to share with her.
And, having said that, I realize its probably just best left alone.
The news in itself, knowing I am alive and well, and have dear babies of my own, would be comforting. Wouldn't it?
