First things first. In 1994, I married the love of my life who would eventually plant the seed, making it possible for me to be a Mom.
I basked in family love and support as these brothers celebrated milestones.
And, just about every year since Daniel was two, I steal away to Palm Springs or some other mental-recharging station with my pals. Cheers!
Thank God my folks live nearby and have been a part of the fun!
I have never needed my Mom more!
These little boys grew and needed a Dad to show them the way. My Techie husband joined Indian Guides and again, I found respite when the boys went camping. Thanks God for giving me a fantastic Father for our children... I still look forward to those breaks and so do they!
We started family traditions like our Halloween Dress up dinner, builiding Gingerbread Houses, going to Bass lake with the Hood Family and playing Sorry, our favorite game.That first year as a mom totally rocked my life....and the aftershocks are still occuring. Now, my challenge is to keep balance at home, at work, in my heart, thoughts and deeds, and of course on Blanche, my uniclcye! Hey, everyone needs a hobby, right?
Happy Mother's Day!
