A Mother's Heart

With Mother's Day just around the corner it always makes me thing.... We always buy a gift for our mother or recieve a gift, but what does Mother's Day mean for our "Mother's."

I start thinking about Mother's Day weeks before! It's a time that I feel like a better woman! lol Funny, I know. But it's like my heart grows twice it's size, just like in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

It also reminds me of when I started blogging and I started reading all about bloggers who give! I remember join in meme's where I share who I gave that week. Being apart of a group of bloggers who made a difference also makes my heart grew bigger.

When I was about 8 years old I remember my mother.... she helped take care of my great-grandmother and today she's taking care of my grandmother. No other women in the world can surpass the amount of love and kindness she has to give. And ever since my father lost his battle with cancer she has changed. She walks a bit sadder, she misses him so much. But we still go the the Feast of Sharing every Thanksgiving, and we still help out at our local church almost every Sunday.

She has helped me become a better woman, mother, wife and more! Happy early Mother's Day!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
