My mom has always been there for me no matter what even when I didn't think I needed her..
Always there to give me guidance and of course sympathy when I was hurt courage to try something new ..
There is so many stories to tell some of them quite comical now that I'm older but back in the day boy was I upset. I know I drove my mom crazy when I was little around 2 or 3 I never seemed to like to where clothes so my mom even laughed even though she was embarrassed when the whole neighborhood was chuckling as they saw this little girl on her 10ft slide stark naked in her backyard in front of the post office just catching a few sun rays.
Or the time when I was in the family garage telling our neighbors little boy "Robbie you will too marry me and you will like it too"... She also must have almost died of embarrassment when I was just first potty training and she wanted me to look so pretty for church so she wanted to wait to put on my frilly panties right before we left and she was shocked to see she had forgotten to put them on when I leaned over the church pew and continued to lift my dress all the way to the bathroom..
Moms do deserve a medal for all those lovely embarrassing moments they indore. All the bumps and cuts and broken hearts they heal with there sweet kisses and bandages when we are small and as we grow up towards adulthood all the gentle wise words to guide us along our way..
I just want tell my mom I'm so proud to be your daughter and want you to know that I appreciate all the wonderful things you've done for me through my life and I'm a better person for having such a great mom so I hope you enjoy your day.. It is quite deserved it should be MOTHER'S DAY every day!!!!
I also want to dedicated this post to my Nannie my moms mother.. My Nannie was such a great lady.. I do miss her very much!!! What fond and lovely memories I have of spending summer vacations with her. She was always a barrel of laughs I do wish she was still here with us...
I also want to wish all you moms out there a HAPPY MOTHER'S Day hope you all have a wonderful day....
My rose bushes are outta control my dad cut them back in the winter but the last few weeks they have been growing "like a weed" and have doubled in size.. CAN'T WAIT till they bloom saw a few little buds on one this morning..So well I guess gotta get those hands dirty and start pullin all those weeds out of the flower beds replace the old mulch. Get some pretty annuals to put in my empty pots. Scrub down the patio furniture power wash the deck.. Oh my the list just keeps getting bigger..
My hubby surprised me with the old cans he brought them home after helping a friend clean out an old garage.. I was gonna paint them but decided to leave them they are nice just the way they are. Do you agree??? This rose bush is a bit outta control too.. Tese flower beds have seen better days I have to get new mulch to fill theses babies. Also why is it where you want to grow grass it seems it never grows but always where you don't want it to it always does..
Enjoyed every moment even being attacked by the bugs.. It really makes you think what "we" take for granted.. The kids both live and some are just there for out patient therapy. However even though the kids have handicaps these children are so happy. The staff is wonderful and they simply love these children. I got the opportunity to spend time with little "JOEY" he was such a cutie. Even though he was unable sit up by himself after putting him in his special seat I pulled him in a wagon around the hospital property and he was so HAPPY.. Smiling and laughing well not out loud not like normal kids do but being with him only a few hours you would be surprised how you learn there way of communication. I was a bit sad when I left leaving, however my heart was full.. Just looking forward to my next visit...
So I suggest if you can give a helping hand.. Whether it be a hospital,school,a library,a nursing home or someone that is in need of a little help it really does the "heart" good. It brings you down to reality to realize all those problems you think you have really are not so bad after all.. It is quite a lesson to learn that others in this world just are happy with the life they have and make the best of it. Thank goodness for the people out there that care....
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter..
We had a great one even though I felt a bit under the weather.. It was so great to have everyone together in one place. The kids running all over sneaking their "sugar" filled goodies out of their baskets making their parents "CRAZY". All the ladies sitting around telling stories of past times.. I love holidays being all together is such a delight.. It seems it doesn't happen often enough though. It is quite sad when everyone is gone home and its just me and my hubby left behind.
I simply fell in Love with this picture of this little girl...
Isn't she so cute....
I'm planning a tea party for my nieces 10th birthday this Sat..
( I will post pictures soon)... With working 40 hours a week and the usual daily life stuff it really doesn't leave to much time for party planning but I'm doing my best and hope she loves it... So I 'm gonna go for now to work on the small details..
I can't Believe its Feburary...
Only a few days till Valentines Day..Hubby and I really don't go crazy over valentines day.. We usually go out to dinner & maybe the movies a couple days after..
On Valentines Day itself I will make my hubby fav meal and get one of his favorite flicks and some POPCORN and we will just sit back and relax and "lay like broccoli"..
Do you know what movie that lines from one of my all time favs PRETTY WOMAN.. Boy what a cinderalla movie for grownup girls that is.. Well maybe I can convince hubby to watch this one too. That gets me thinking there are more of my favs I would love to watch too.. Maybe I will make this weekend a "romance- a- thon" bring out all those girly movies that would be alot of fun...
