I haven't posted in nearly a month.
It's not that we haven't been doing anything blog worthy. There's lots of little projects I have been working on, school fieldtrips, Cardi's orchestra competition and trip to Dollywood, and painting galore. We certainly have lots of fun summer ideas to blog about and new recipes to share. Of course, I could always write a post about all the wonderful friends I have here who rally around me when I'm sick: taking my kids to the park, dropping off dinner and calling just to see how I'm feeling which is still exhausted after doing the simplest things but much, much better, thank you.
Right, now I'm surrounded by piles of laundry beckoning and John just mentioned that the kid's bathroom is out of hand soap even though I just filled it on Monday (probably because he keeps squirting it on his bedroom window). But, it's Sunday, a day of rest. And did I mention it's Mother's Day?
And I am so grateful for my own mother who taught me the importance of family and saying "I love you" everyday. She is strong and resilient. I am grateful for the example that she sets and the values she has instilled in me. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you.
