Happy Birthday…well in a less than an hour it will be your birthday. You are always on my mind more than usual this time of year. It doesn’t make sense but I wanted to write a post/letter to you even though I know you can’t “see” it. Just clicking on the “Publish” button is like sending mail…I just like to imagine that you can read it. Then I decided that I shouldn’t write anything because I have no clue what to say, or exactly how to say what’s in my mind.
So, I decided to look through the WordPress blog of daily post ideas and clicked on one from last week that I never got a chance to read. The post was about the “blogging mantras” of the writer – which were 1) Nothing is permanent, 2) Don’t panic, and 3) This is supposed to be fun. Right as I was reading the section for “Don’t Panic” (which ironically is something I really need to remember at this time in my life), I noticed a picture that the blogger inserted into the post. This was the picture:
Okay, Jeny, I hear you loud and clear! I just had to stop for a second and thought this couldn’t be a real sign but after doing some research it seems like there are actually road signs like this in Pennsylvania. And when I saw that the sign was pointing to Dubois, PA, which is where you are, it just gave me chills. Out of all the posts I decided to click on and the one I decide to read has an arrow pointing to “you”…I was just shocked. But I love these kinds of “signs”, literally! Keep them coming! I knew then that I should just go ahead and write this post.
I’ll be visiting you in a few weeks…and please keep watching over my precious nephew, as I know you already have been.
