Last night, two of my "babies"... my first born daughter Lisa and my second last born son, Liam were feted for arriving at new pinnacles in their grown lives. Lisa, the mother of my three grandchildren, Ryan, Mica and Braden was here at Islandsview for a typically Sherman gala celebration... with her sister Allison ( Dr. Jemima Puddle Duck) present to help us celebrate Lisa-Bo-Bissa's (Dolly-Dolly-Dumpkins-Queen-of-the-Pumpkins) November 30th special day! We are celebrating early because Lisa must return to her home in the beautiful Barbados before the actual date.
Lisa has travelled many miles... since she created "opened" her "Cradle Craft Boutique" with her friend Leanna Finucan... in my garden tool shed back in 1980. Her family life blended with her significant business skills and her HUGE creative spirit and drive prepare her for the next and most important chapter in her life. I am so proud of the recent initiatives she is undertaking to actualize her girlhood dream to actually run a bona fide artisan business. Stay tuned!....
Liam-Pee'em turned 18 on November 24th. How special is that date? Can you recall the feelings at your own 18th? Carpe diem... Get outta my way world! HA HA!! His evening was scheduled around taking four of his buddies out to his fav "all -you-can-eat-sushi" joint... copious cups of green tea and a trip to the movies... to take in the current James Bond box office hit and thriller. Liam is a "cool dude" who makes his own way... and never follows the crowd. He spends countless hours developing computer games that he plays on the ultra fast hard drive... which he built totally on his own... piece by piece from eBay!
As you can readily see from the nicknames... I value each of my children and their accomplishments totally upon how we relate with each other... and our common interests. Each is special to "Me" in their own unique way... and never compared or judged in relation to the others. Whatever their interests... all are free thinkers and are creative in their pursuit of knowledge. All have a unique passion for what they love. The common denominator is that they share my surname... and each already have brought honour and accomplishment to our family... no matter their age!
Deb and I am very proud of each of them and we share an unconditional love for each... which will always be there.
We are deeply blessed!...
Happy Birthday Lisa and Liam! Much Peace ... Health... Happiness and Success!
Lisa... in better light!
