Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

Quick Check In

hey gang-
Just wanted to stop by real quick and say hi.
Things here are good...crazy busy and I have a migraine that just won't quit..
Today is my mom's birthday...
She is an amazing woman.
She laughs with me
Cries with me
has supported me through a million things..
and still comes back for more..
she is my rock..
I talk to her every single day on the phone...
sometimes for a quick check in..
sometimes for the entire ride home...
She will listen, help me process, and let me make my own decisions..
sometimes good..
sometimes bad..
but she never says I told you so..
She just offers a hand to pull me up when I fall...
I have lots of friends...some I consider my best...
But my mom is truly my very best friend....
I know that she's had a good day and I will talk to her one more time before I go to bed...
and hopefully her flowers will get there tomorrow...

I hope you are all well...I miss you all...I have stuff for some of you..like a fruitcake recipe...a jam recipe and a few other emails to send....
I hope your corners of the world are full of happiness and love this evening...
