Mother's day....a great day of remembering. It's been nearly 20 years since I lost my mom. I've lived more years without her than with her. For only 10 years of my life did I have a healthy mother. But you know...it's okay. I'm not sad. I don't even let my mind go to the sad place... I shift my mind right to the happiness, where I want those memories to be. I'm thankful. I'm thankful to have been inspired by an amazing, loving, energetic, giving and social woman. She spent her days giving all she had to my brother and me and her influence runs deep. Every picture I have of her, her love radiates. I am one lucky girl to have had a mom like her.
My very first wedding (Uncle Randy and Aunt Di)
And so it goes, we're onto the next generation. I get to ring in the new year with this little lady who is not a fan of sleeping. She's talked about chickens and sheep. She's fixed my hair, rubbed my
back, given me a dozen kisses, explained how much she loves me and given
my shoulders a quick massage. Seems as though she's handing out the Mother's Day presents early... and apparently sleeping isn't one of them! She is mighty cute....so that makes up the no sleep. Sorta.
