What's Happening?!?!

It's a great day!  I normally have a difficult time in October or at least for the past 4 years I have.  You see it's been 4 years since my mom passed away (Oct. 12th) so about this time every year I reminisce and feel an emptiness.  I'm doing good so far maybe it's because I cried for a while last Sunday at bible study.  Did I get my crying out?  I don't know.  Tuesday was a difficult day also.  By the time I got home I was almost in tears again, but I didn't cry.  I was just right there--ON THE VERGE.  My sweet hubby gets the worst of me.  I'm good all day at school, but by the time I get home I'm beat.  I feel stressed.  I feel tired, but I feel love.  I feel joy and I love my 2nd graders.  So hubby, thanks for being there and loving me and telling me I can do this and everything will be ok.  You know when times are tough, you give me more reasons to love you. 

Read some of my memories of my sweet mom here.  I was definitely a momma's girl and I know that sounds weird being the age I am, but you know it doesn't bother me in the least.  I am who I am because of her and the way she raised me. 

Life lesson:  Tell your family and friends you love 'em or reminisce with them a special moment you had with them.  It can make a difference in their day/life.  We aren't promised tomorrow so make the most of every day.  There have been many people since school started that have said little things to me that have made a difference in my day and literally kept me going.  So thank you friends.  You know who you are.  I love and appreciate you.  Little things mean more than you know.  So go ahead, step out of your comfort zone, take a chance and make a difference.
