Thunder, Death and Life on James Island, South Carolina-July 4th Weekend

Today July fifth eight years ago at three in the afternoon my mom died after fighting breast cancer for four years. It thundered that day. Today July fifth at three in the afternoon my two daughters went to a funeral for a friend, a young man, that died two days ago over something that seemed to matter at the time. It thundered today. I did not go with them hoping that they would bring home a life lesson about death and life. I knew the child that died and can only imagine what his parents must feel. I have prayed everyday for twenty-one years that I would never have to experience my children dying before me. When I was eight or so we went to my dad's fathers funeral. My granddad was sixty-nine and his mother was ninety-five. That day she told me she had buried three husbands and today she had to bury her baby and no mother should live to bury a child. Just like any other parent I would gladly give my life for my children. Today I tried to explain to my children that life does not work that way. There are no do-overs in this life. You can make changes in your life after you make a mistake, if you are lucky enough to live through them, but when your life ends there are no do-overs. It is very hard to understand how anyone can take someone elses life for any reason. YOU CAN NOT TAKE IT BACK. These days our children seem to grow up so fast. I pray today that each mom and dad out there hug their children, tell them you love them and just talk about life. It is short. I also pray for Craig, his parents, his brothers and all of their family and friends. May you feel Gods love and may He give you peace.

A late Happy Independence Day to us all!

When we look around the globe at the conditions in so many countries, we realize what a
special holiday this is. There are as many ways to celebrate the day as there are small towns across our state. Here’s a preview.

Birthday

This weekend was my birthday. Wow what a week in Charleston. Wednesday, my sister and brother (by marriage)which is better than my own took our girls group out for a boat cruise. We ate and then left James Island Creek into the Charleston Harbor and down the Ashley River. We cut the motors after we went under the double Ashley River bridges and floated with the incoming tide for three or four miles. We went for a swim and floated with the boat. The water was so warm and comforting. Then on Friday afternoon most of our friends took a half day off work and showed up at my pool and when I got home they were planning the night. My husband and I had to go to a going away party for some guys at work at Red's Ice House on Mt. Pleasant. What a meat market! Well it was Friday afternoon. We said our goodbye and arrived home to our friends cooking burgers and dogs on the grill. What a treat! We ate, swam and talked late into the night. On Saturday I held an open house at one of my listings and then showed property. I got home and was working on the computer and my sister and mother-in-law showed up and told me I needed to leave. They had come bearing gifts. They planted all of my pots with blooming Sweet Potatoe vines, Gerber Daisies, Hybiscus and Verbena among other plants. My entire backyard looked totally different with a few pots of flowers. I was brought to tears. There was a heat index of 101 on Saturday. We cooked dinner for four and ended up with sixteen. We had food left over. Somehow thats how it ends up in the South, we just don't know how to cook for four. Love this life. How many people get a weeks worth of birthday? It is Sunday and I am so ready for Monday, so I can rest. I hope your birthday measures up!!!

Life, Marriage and Kids Living in Charleston, SC

What I know about life, marriage and kids after 22 years of marriage and two girls turning 21 and 18 this winter seems to be absolutely nothing. I do know that I pray more than I ever have in my entire life. I pray that I will know what to say and when to say it and that they take it the right way. Life is a whole job in itself. How do we have time to work?! Thank God the weather and lifestyle in Charleston, South Carolina otherwise known as the Lowcounrty is a very relaxing, friendly place to raise a family. I don't ever (hardly ever) worry about my kids safety, as far as crime goes, as I do about the decisions they will make. When you live in a place like Charleston the kids are all known buy parents, teachers,and coaches of other kids from the schools and the recreational centers and they seem to feel other eyes watching them. Enough of that. Both of my kids are out tonight and the 17 year had here last day of school today and thinks she has been set free. She will be a senior next fall after all. She attends James Charter Island High School which is one of the best and has an International Baccaluriet program which she is not in!! So to end, my prayers are headed upwards. God Speed.
