Happy 20th Birthday, Arielle!!!

Today is my precious daughter Arielle's 20th birthday. I know, I'm too young to have a daughter that age, but it's true. Twenty years ago today, I was in the hospital, waiting for my beautiful girl to make her appearance. She was late, but it set the tone for her entire life. She does things he own way and marches to her own drum!

She's ready to graduate from massage therapy school next month, a full month before she was scheduled and was already offered a job last month. She chose this career and life path because of my health problems. She was born for this and seems to have the magic touch. (Meaning, she can zero in where it hurts the worst and poke it until it stops hurting).

We're going to meet her for dinner at Red Lobster this afternoon. She's gone there and had her own lobster since she was a little girl. Can't wait to see her and give her a birthday hug, then take her shopping for the required new BIRTHDAY SHOES!!!

Love You!

A new start

So I haven't been on here in a while and when I do, they have deleted access to my blog - Gretchen's Travels through life. Maybe it's a sign? Nah, it's the digital age and I haven't been able to be on line like I use to be. I literally only use the laptop when I have an assignment. Thanks to my cellphone and Kindle Fire, I can be on line with those devices and it doesn't set off the migraines like the laptop screen does.

I'll try and be better about posting. It's June, but is that too late for a new year's resolution?
