Now it begins. . .

My daughters have been telling me that I should have my own blog so tonight my oldest daughter, Kik, has helped me begin.

Finding the heading or address that would be the best has taken the most time and I finally settled on the "Beauty of Bamboo" - it seems that all the places we have lived we have always found some bamboo growing near us - but the saying really started the morning we were all flying to Puerto Rico for a family vacation - we were flying out of Kennedy and the weather had been beautiful leading up to the day of the flight and I kept saying I wanted it really cold when leaving so I could really enjoy Puerto Rico - we woke up that morning and it had snowed - really snowed - and as we drove past the bamboo growing nearby the snow was heavy and had bowed it all way down and I said (sounding like a wise Yoda), "Look girls, the beauty of bamboo - it bends but it doesn't break."

And so - these are some of my stories of sometimes having to "bend" but never breaking.
