My daughters Kris and Charlotte were marching in the Women's March in downtown Chicago.
I am so proud that they represented all the women in our family. Kristen carried tokens of her grandmother, best friends and a penny for Penny and me. Chicago's march had 250,000 marchers.
At one point during the march, Kris looked over to see a man with a name tag she recognized. It was our old and dear friend named Floyd. Floyd was marching with the Sierra Club. She introduced herself as Penny's daughter... I am sure that Floyd was amazed to see Kristen, now a beautiful grown woman. It has been such a long time since we had last seen Floyd. Kristen never forgets a face, and a happy reunion ensued. What are the odds? They left me a message on my answering machine at home. It was so sweet.
That daughter of mine is amazing. It was a significant day for all women, made more so by Kristen's fierce determination to make the world a more tolerant, inclusive and peaceful place to raise her daughter. Charlotte walked on a painful foot determined to have her feelings known. I am so proud of my girls.
Later on Saturday evening Penny got to visit with her cousins, well, cousin cats. Mike and Amanda invited us over for dessert and some cat cuddling. Penny is a cat whisperer and loves Henry( the cutest cat ever )and Oden and Luna. We had such a nice visit and Penny was in cat heaven. Mike and Amanda have settled into life back home. They have a cozy and welcoming home, and we are so glad to have them close.
It is so cool. One other gift will arrive next month. Thanks to my generous hubby and kids I got to shop PB, just for fun. Of course I got sale prices and free shipping.
I have Valentine's to craft, crocheting to do, laundry awaits. Another gloomy day, but memories of our happy weekend will warm my heart and get me through.
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.
