Yes March 18th 1983 was my first best day ever!! That is the day I gave birth to my first born son Justin Kent Pafford. He made me a Mom, I was so happy, he was so perfect, red skin, brownish/black hair and blue eyes, he was perfect in my eyes and everyone else who saw him.
Yes these pictures are so old and not the best, but I think they are awesome. He was such a cute baby, and so glad he was my first best day ever son, because after him came 3 more best day ever sons. We all truly miss Justin, he was such an awesome son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend and least but not forgotten he was a Father to his son Brayden.He loved being a Dad to his son. Just reflecting back on his life, I am thankful that Heavenly Father gave me the opportunity to have him as a son. He meant a lot to me and also to many others. I wish he was still alive. I just loved him so much. I cant write any more about him, because I am now crying I miss you Justin, you will be 22 years old to me forever. I love you forever, in my heart forever, always your Mom forever. RIP
Well I really felt the need to create something today. I am surprised it came so quick for me, I usually spend hours trying to decide what to create, what papers,stamps,and colors, to use, well this time I had no problem coming up with this cute card. I found the sketch on Mojo Mondays and thought, wow this is a cute idea. Here is the sketch:
Well as some may know, I have always been a fan of Johnny Depp. He is a great looking man,who is also the greatest actor. I use to, many years ago love making tags and things with his picture using Paint Shop Pro, it has been a long time since I have done any creating using this program. Well I decided I was in the mood to make a picture with a quote from him. I really love this quote. I love this picture. This picture is from the Golden Globes Awards, I don't remember what year. I just wanted to share this.
There is no copy right infringement intended. found the picture on the www.
Ok well I am not the best reviewer, but I do love to read.
I am reading a series of books by Darlene Quinn. The first book I read is called: Webs Of Power; A Novel. I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review, I have received the whole series to read.
What first attracted me to read these books, was the storyline, it is about the 80's I lived in the 80's as a young adult, so I remember the 80's. I also love reading powerful books with strong, glamorous women, who live the high life, something that I don't live. This story is also about three women who happen to be linked to a large department store that is going through a take over. I really loved reading the story, I thought the author did an awesome job, kept me interested through the whole book. Here is what the book is about posted on Goodreads:
Webs of Power is a raw, unsentimental portrayal of greed, manipulation, and relationships set in the excessive, insatiable retail industry of the 1980s. When a hostile takeover of the retail giant Consolidated is announced, the lives of three determined women, each linked to the corporate upheaval, are unexpectedly thrown off course: Paige Toddman's marriage to Consolidated's West Coast Division CEO is threatened when she decides to step out of her fast-paced lifestyle to raise the unwanted child she is carrying, a choice driven by her secret past. The fabric of Ashleigh McDowell's life begins to fray when her fiance, the president of Consolidated's West Coast Division, moves away and her father figure faces a lawsuit that could wipe out his controlling shares of the company's stock. Vain and power hungry, Viviana De Mornay will stop at nothing to become the wife of the man leading the takeover. Webs of Power is a thrilling real-world drama with dynamic characters who find the courage to drastically reshape their lives in the face of crises and the twists of fate. I do recommend this book, if you like reading fast paced books, with a slight thriller edge and some romance and drama. I found this quote from Darlene Quinn:
Characters Should Be “Real” People
That is how her book seemed to me, real people, real lives.
