I’ve been duly warned—but choose to proceed- in spite of the rolling eyes, scoffs, skepticism, and concern for my sanity!!
It was a wonderful weekend at Upper Clements Theme Park—along with five grandchildren , two children and their respective spouses--- At the end of the long fun-filled day, we were gathered at the “ball room”, readying to depart and say our good-byes--- Michael noticed an unusual looking rodent had poked its head out from under the wooden steps --- looking straight on—an animal the likes of which we had never seen, except in pictures, in broad daylight in the midst of a theme park nonetheless--- there it was--- and I knew--- call me crazy, whatever, a mother knows these things---- it was a GROUNDHOG!!! Chris’s birthday is Feb.2—Groundhog Day--- and I know, as anyone who knows Chris knows—his genius and flair for practical jokes,,, he had found a way to say “Hello, I’m here too”---

Well, it was your sign, and you grabbed it. That's all that matters.

As someone critical said, always always listen to your heart. It knows.
