The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Holes In The Floor Of Heaven

"One day shy of eight years old
Grandma passed away
I was a broken hearted little boy,
Blowing out that birthday cake

How I cried when the sky let go
With a cold and lonesome rain
Mama said don't be sad child
Grandma's watchin' you today

'Cause there's holes in the floor of Heaven
And her tears are pourin' down
That's how you know she's watchin'
Wishin' she could be here now
And sometimes if you're lonely
Just remember she can see
There's holes in the floor of Heaven
And she's watchin' over you and me"

If you haven't noticed by now or don't know me well enough... I greatly relate to music. A song can say exactly what I am feeling or thinking and although I can't put it into words, the song can. At different times in my life, or even during the day, I can be feeling a certain way and when I turn on the radio the station just reads my mind. It happens various times when the song that's playing fits exactly what I am feeling at that moment. I listen to country music, it's practially 97% of what's on my computer, my phone, my ipod, and of course my car. And I listen to it because... well it usually tells a story. It's usually something I can relate to or have lived through.

So one night my friend Dawn asked me to listen to a song.

She sent me a link to a youtube video.

I immediately cried thinking... this is about Diego.

Diego was SUPER close to his Grandma. Diego lost her 3 months before his 7th birthday... and on that day he was sad. He came to me in the morning and said, "I am sad. Sad because this is my first birthday without Jamma." But I quickly reminded him that she can still see everything that happens and will still be watching on his special day. Grandma wouldn't miss it for the world.

He's always comforted knowing she can still see us.

But it's not always him who needs a reminder. Sometimes when I am feeling sad I have to remember that she is watching. It's not just something I say to make him feel better... it's something I know.

I hope he always continues to remember there's Holes in the floor of Heaven... and she's watching over all of us.
