Happy Birthday Dear Brett!!

Happy Birthday Dear Brett!!

Today is my husband's birthday. He is out of town working hard. He is and has been a small business owner for 18 years. Unfortunately the "recession" has taken a real toll on his business. In an attempt to keep his business going and keep his employees employed he is exploring a new venture this week.

He was my strongest support this weekend in moving my Mom into assisted living. Without his loving support I'm not sure I could have done it. He has been under an incredible amount of stress in his job lately. However with a cheerful disposition he orchestrated the entire weekend and then had to dash out of here to work on this new venture. He must be exhausted but he never complains.

Sunday, after a very busy weekend of moving my Mom he had very little time to pack and get to the airport to leave for his new venture. He did it all with a smile on his face. I wish we could be together to celebrate his birthday. However, when he comes home I am planning to bake him a carrot cake and shower him with attention. He is one of those people that is constantly doing for others and expects nothing in return.


I hope to be back to regular blogging soon. Thank you for your sweet comments in my absence. All things considered the move went well. I am currently on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. As soon as things stabilize I want to be back to regular blogging. You have no idea how much I crave normalcy.

    Glad to hear things went well with your mother.

    Have a great day, Kim!
