Surprise Calls From Justin

June, 2009
I love this kid! Last week I had a voice mail from him that came in after 9:30 p.m. so I was already asleep. I texted him the next morning and he called me right away while I was riding the bus to work.  Amanda had received word that she has been accepted to the Ph.D. program at a school in Michigan.

Michigan? It's so far away .....
But on the up side, I've never been there so it affords a new place to travel to.

I love this photo of Justin. I love Justin. So much it makes my heart physically hurt sometimes. That sweet little look on his face is the tickle from rain drops falling on his freshly shaved head.  I could just hug the photographer who took this photo. She cannot possibly know she captured a moment in time that shows the very essence of my son. 

I have to go now ... 


love, susan

  2. You will have to check on the map where Amanda will be. That is a very beautiful there. It has been many many years since I was there and also in the fall. The colors all around...She is on the Eastern side of the lake and you will have many many places to visit.
