Yesterday in church, one of my besties gave the best Mother's Day talk I've heard in my adult life. If you are a mother, please click here and read it.
I took many gems from her talk, but I also felt like it was okay to keep writing on my blog. For the most part, this blog may be written through rose colored glasses, but that's okay. I don't blog about the bad stuff, because I want to forget it. I don't blog about my frustrations with situations, because I strive everyday not to be a gossip. I feel pretty good about myself in that category. I don't write about my extended family because some of us are estranged. Too Much Information? It may make you feel uncomfortable for a second, but in my heart of hearts, I don't know how to repair it.
So. Welcome back to my blog, written with my pretty glasses on. Some of the things I share, I don't feel are funny at the moment, but as a dear friend of our family said to us once, Do it with a smile on your face and a grudge in your heart. Sometimes I write with a grudge in my heart, a tear down my face, and prayer for a smile in the future.
I'd rather read a rose colored blog than a downer blog. So there.
That being said, here is a photo dump, that may or may not sum up the last 38 days.
