about May 12th

Today I had to take the kids to school. Grouchiness prevailed at my house until one joke was made. Poof! Everything changed. We laughed all the way to school. :)

Then I went to the grocery store and bought a balloon bouquet for my mom's birthday. Couldn't leave it there! After all, we didn't think she'd make it to this birthday! So I bought a banner to hang in her room. And I had to get some "lucky bamboo" for her; I loved the oriental pot it was in. Perfect. And I found just the right card too. Isn't it great when things fall into place so well!

I am just so thankful for one more year with her! Let's make it two, okay Lord?

Then over to her nursing home to decorate her room, trim down some cut flowers she got for Mother's Day from her dialysis worker, and just hang out until she had to leave for dialysis.

Feeling a bit down a few minutes ago and then listening to "Smile" by Uncle Kracker (found at the bottom of my blog on my playlist) song. Blues are gone. How could they stay? Isn't it incredible the impact music has on us? I assume it affects everybody anyway. It can change my mood quicker than anything else.

And now to watch HOUSE with Steve. The only thing that could be better is if it was Grey's Anatomy. :)

Still trying to gain balance.. and finding it in the little things.


  1. So true...balance is to be found in the little things.

  2. Happy Birthday to your mom.
    Glad you spent time with her and listening to music and watching a good show with you man.

    You are so right. We have to appreciate the little things.
    ♥ Joy

  3. Yes, Happy Birthday to your mother!
