Most of it is good, and I'm focusing on only the good today.
We had a fun weekend. On Saturday the kids had a soccer game, and then we took them to the Splash Pad at a nearby park. They had a blast. Then they washed our car, washed the dog, and weeded the garden! Go Child Labor!
For Mother's Day, very little money was spent but still I was spoiled and made to feel very special. I got breakfast in bed, a huge vase of hand-picked wildflowers, handmade cards as well as store-bought cards and small gifts. It was simple, sweet, and thoughtful, and I loved it all.
With all the stuff that we've been through lately, I've realized some things. I am blessed to have a very strong marriage. If it wasn't, we could not have weathered these trying times. It has just made us stronger, and if I have to go through these things, there's nobody that I'd rather go through it with than my husband & family. And I have faith that we're going to be the ones still standing when all of the dust settles. I'm clinging to that. My family isn't perfect, but we are strong and bonded by love. We may fight with each other, but we will also fight FOR each other. We are a force to be reckoned with!
There's so much more to say; Wednesday is my birthday and we have a FUN afternoon planned, and I have a FANTASTIC day planned on Friday, followed by a great weekend....but I'll post all about that later in the week!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day full of appreciation & love!
