Today I got up and felt better than I had in a LONG time, I tried to stay low and not over do anything. Still I was so excited, I felt like I had more energy and was excited about things again. I actually went downstairs for the first time in a long time, and worked on something in my Sewing Studio ( ok room, but studio does sound better don't you think ?).
Then the day got even better, my doorbell rang and when I went to get it ...there was a lady delivering flowers to my door. I smiled as she was walking away and said "thanks I probably should leave them on my porch, they look better than my dying Christmas greenery". She just smiled and said that she wondered if something had been wrong. We talked for a minute and then she left and I brought the flowers in. I was so surprised when I read the note it said..."Mom would be proud of you as a Mother and a Grandmother, Love your brothers " I couldn't believe it, how sweet for them to send me flowers, I know they had been worried about me...but to send flowers and have them to arrive on Mom's Birthday, was even more thoughtful. It made my day!
When I was 40 years old, my Mom passed away. I remember thinking that I was way to young to lose my Mom...who do you call when you have questions about raising your kids, or for an old family recipe and most important who would check on me when I am having a bad day or sick (and she would know that without anyone telling her)? I think most of all, I miss that she never got to see my kids grow up, she would have loved what a difference in the world they are making. And I wouldn't even mind if she would have stayed around long enough to meet my grandchildren...she would have loved them for sure. She loved being a Grandmother more than anything. I really do miss her!
So today was a great day and it ended up a surprise for Jeff too! Because I even made dinner...it was a shocker to him, but I know he was just happy to see me feeling better and having a least a couple of things go back to normal...so am I!
Good night dear friends, oh and here are my beautiful flowers!
