Heads or Tails this week is "LIST THREE"

In order to make it more personal and make it easy on myself for a blog post, I'm gonna talk a wee bit about the THREE most important people I know. My immediate family. [excluding the two furbabies].

First....Bud. He's my strength. He's my match made in heaven. He's my best friend. He's my comedy relief. He's my support. He's my advisor. He's my confidante. He's my best listener. He's my better half. He's my everything.

Second....Irene. She's my first born. She's my girl! She's the mother of my grandsons. She's my inspiration. She's my cohort in many ways. She's become a great friend. She's one that shares craft interests. She's my everything!

Third....Erik. He's still my baby [tho now 37]. He's my young companion with common interests in the arts. He's my pride 'cause he accomplishes what he aims for in life. He's my Marine. He's my brain in economics. He's my coach in many ways. He's my everything.

I like to think this is the rose from Phantom of the Opera! hehehehe It's actually a velvet single rose in a ruby vase, sitting on the vanity's counter in the master bath, reflecting on the mirror.

  13. Good Morning Sweet Annie...
    You forgot Groundhog's Day? Now I expected to pop over here and see something pretty much like mine. We do so think alike you know.

    I have to tell you though, I love your thoughts about Bud, Irene ane Erik. Bud is so handsome Ms Annie, and Iren is just beautiful. Erik looks like you and Bud, and he is handsome too. A Marine hu? (I married a Marine) They are a group of strong men. A beautiful family Annie. Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing them with me this morning.

    I love the rose in front of the mirror. The reflection makes it appear as there are two there. So beautiful and creative.

    Have a beautiful Tuesday. We have a 60% chance of rain today and 70% tomorrow, so I would say, you all should be seeing this around Thursday. LOL.

    See ya soon sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry
