To all of the mothers out there I would like to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day! When I woke up this morning I had every intention of writing a tribute to my mother, things don’t always work out the way you intend.
It would take an emotional toll for me to write it, my mom has been gone 11yrs and it is still really hard. A part of me died with her, actually when she died I wanted to die too. How could I possibly live the rest of my life without her? I honestly think the only reason I survived was because of my kids. I didn’t break, but that was the closest I ever came to a real breakdown.
I was blessed enough to be brought to tears for another reason. In 8 months or so there will be another member of the next generation. It was beautiful how the soon to be first grandparents were told. We were all crying and hugging and it was a good emotionally draining moment.
My cousin in law is about to find out what spoiled really means. I will be delivering a big box of saltines and ginger ale tomorrow. I am soooooo excited!! I really had to stop myself from shopping for the baby, just like I have to stop myself from buying for the first next generation beautiful baby girl.
The wind was horrific today, it was like adding insult to injury since there is a freeze warning tonight and there were snow flurries today. It’s a fluke and will be better in a few days, but grrr. I had to turn the heat back on, it’s crazy.
I did notice that whenever I walk by the window and see the green it makes me smile. I think that after all of the leaves are back on the trees, it then becomes my favorite time of the year. I can’t explain it, everything is green again, the sun shines more, and it warms up, it just feels “right”.
I signed up to take an apron class before I left. I am serious about this learning to sew stuff! I even bought this…This was a Black Friday add, I paid $34.99 and mine is black and off white, but it has wheels.
It looked a lot easier on Pinterest, although they used wine bottles. I put bath salts in crown bottles for Christmas one year and people still bring me bottles. If anybody out there as any ideas for projects using crown bottles please let me know. (I have a few friends who are bar tenders…not lushes, well maybe the one)
