Warm days

Ahh, so it appears spring has arrived. Today we stayed home all day. Stay at home days are my favorite.


If you ever want to be inspired, Special Olympics is where to go. Many of these kids and adults have had to work 10x-100x harder than I ever have had to work, and they do so with perseverance. The day is full of smiles, high fives, ribbons, celebrations and just an all out good time.  The first Special Olympics I went to was a Winter Games one during my undergrad days. Been just about every year since.  Thankful to bring this trio along to cheer for our friends.


Somehow this kid got enough drive to finish a project! I make him stitch a seam a week (which he often grumbles about). Just one seam. I told him if I am teaching other kids how to sew, I am teaching him too! Nice to see him want to finish it and so proud of what he made.

Thank you.

Thank you for all the kind words and sweet memories about my mom.
We celebrated her memory with chocolate cake, as promised.  Although the littlest doesn't yike any of the dinner options lately, she seems to love chocolate frosting just as much as her late grandmother.


When you don't yike the dinner (the same dinner you yiked yesterday...and every other time we've had it...) Sigh.

 I think she might pull through. I hope the rest of us do...

Birthday Memories

My mom would have been 68 today.

I had her 15 years, 10 of them where healthy ones.

The memories of those years are so abundant and joyous.  Those years with her shaped me to be who I am today. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for all I had. 

We plan on celebrating the gift of her life by sharing memories, eating chocolate cake and drinking iced water.

I feel so blessed to have been raised by her.
