A few of the things I have learned from my Mom.
1. There is always hope. You can always have it, choose it, cloak yourself in it, and act with it in mind.
2. Laugh and cry easily. And laugh hard even when there is no real good reason. The belly laughs shared by my Grandma and her sisters, my Mom and her Mom, and my Mom and me, are a legacy that deserves to be always passed down.
3. Give. Whenever you can and to whoever is in need.
4. Sing with children. Loudly, and often, because they don’t care how you sound only how you silly you are.
5. When in doubt; Prayer, Mr. Rogers, Nordstroms, or a good long phone chat with your Mom.
my mothers day was perfect.
My requests: a bath and a brunch with my Mom in attendance. Check. And two little tanned and giggly girls joined in on my bath, bonus!
Gifted to me by my everloving husband: two gorgeous big garden boxes built by him adorning my front yard.
Party Bonus: a decadent meal made for me while I slept in (beet/carrot/ginger juice, coffee, mint water, and fancy fruit filled oatmeal!) and a Happy Hour excursion with some other hardworking Mamas.
I came home from drinks with friends to this sight. What did I ever do to get it so good? Oh, my heart.
