It is finally Friday and it's a FANTASTIC one at that!

It's been a busy week at my house. Three out of five I've had my little Mr. Wonderful here. Mid week I did get in the basement and managed at least 6 garbage bags full of things to go out to the trash. Am I done? By no means.

Today I'm getting ready for a weekend celebration with some of my family. Every year we gather at the end of January to do the Stroll for Epilepsy and to celebrate January birthdays. As usual not all of them will be present, but I'm thankful for the ones that can be there.

My grand daughter who I've nicknamed my Sweetheart suffers from Epilepsy and it has quite disabled her. She is amazing though. She really never lets it get her down. And her family has embraced her disabilities and they don't let it get them down either. She is a very unique and special girl.

The Stroll we are doing is to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation. They do wonderful things for those with this disease and I am going to be walking along with my family in support of our Sweetheart.

I will hopefully have a picture or two for you of this years Stroll on Sunday.

I hope your Friday is a FANTASTIC Day!
