Mothers Day

*NOTE: We're under construction, please excuse any messes!*

Today is the first mothers day in my life that Mom hasn't been here for. While I miss her and the day has had it's mixed emotions it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be. Every time I want to allow myself to get down I'm reminded, in one way or the other, that mom is so much better off. I told my friend Sam this morning on the way out of church that's she's probably still saying "Watch this!" to my dad and taking off at a dead sprint across heaven, with Guilo right on her heels :D I had planned to take flowers to her grave today, but the weather turned rainy and I can just see her saying "I'm not going out in that mess!" and so I'll take some by later this week. Even after my father passed I never visited his grave much. Graves hold little symbolism for me as I know neither of them are actually at the graveyard and that I can talk to either of them whenever I want without going to their graves.

I have been blessed to have my mother-in-law Flo with us since the day after Moms funeral and it was a blessing to be able to celebrate with her. She got a dozen roses and corsage and we did lunch at Sonic. Now you have to understand that until recently the nearest Sonic was 3 hours away in Pennsylvania, well last month one opened in Winchester which is a mere 30 mins from here. So Muffin and Flo were more than eager to do lunch at Sonic. And above you will see a pic of our first meal there :D

And to all you mothers that frequent this blog. I hope your Momma Day has been everything you wanted and more. Happy Momma Day to Flo, Kate, Kirsten, Joanne, Becky H., Mara, Tina, Becky P., Angie and anyone else I've forgotten, charge the forgetfulness to my head and not my heart because I have much love for you all. Last but not least a special Happy Momma Day to Julie for spending her mothers day coming up with this great new template for my blog. Julie's a great friend who moved Texas a while back and I miss her a lot. If you don't already, be sure to check out her blog "The Clearing."

Congrats to Alex for getting last weeks lyric correct. I would have also accepted Larry Norman for the artist. Larry Norman wrote the song and is considered by many to be the "father" of Christian Rock. He went home to be with Jesus in February but left an incredible legacy that won't soon be forgotten. And here's this weeks lyric

Lovin you is like food to my soul
Youre always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
Youll always be
You will always be the girl in my life

Ha ha - I am cracking up -
I was still signed in to your account tweaking with stuff and was posting a comment that said "thanks Dwayne" but it was a bit schizophrenic cuz it looked like you posted it to yourself. I laughed so hard I nearly peed my pants.

Yes, I am easily amused!!!

Thanks, Dwayne!

Love the new look!

No idea on the song lyrics, though I pretty much stink at this kind of thing unless I've got the music to go along with it...
