Sunday Self #13

With so much bombarding us now days, sometimes its good to just stop and reflect.

After a couple days away, it's nice to come home, hug your husband, love on your child and just be.

Spent the last two days at Escalate Live 2010 - a great experience.

Team Up Thursday | Mum's the Word?

"Mom" is a perfect word this week as it rides in on the coattails of Mother's Day. Oh, I love that my partner Down Under played with the {Australian} slang version of it with her picture of {in her words} ChrysantheMUM's!

And what possibly goes better with Chrysanthemums then... Woodenmums! Or Wooden Moms.

On a side note, between work and news, I didn't get to visit blogs or even post last week. It's strange how bad news comes in waves (like celebrity deaths in threes) after getting news of  friends diagnosed with mesothelioma and leukemia (and still praying from them continually), I got news that an old friend had been killed in a head on car accident by a DUI suspect fleeing from the police. Yes, one of those high speed chases we've all seen on TV. Ironically, he was staunchly against drinking.

A sobering reminder that our lives are short and we never know when we may be taken home to our Maker. This friend was passionate about life and loved extreme sports. He was incredibly intelligent and had a successful career in technology. He was also passionate about God and a fierce competitor when playing games. I will always remember our games nights when we were all young and single. It got to the point that he and I always had to be on the same team otherwise there could have been bloodshed - true story! Apparently, I get pretty competitive as well.  We also butted heads over other topics of conversation; but like I said, he was passionate and it always worked itself out.

I will always smile at those crazy, heated times - they will always stir up good memories of him. As one friend said, "it's sad that so many will have to settle with that much less of him in their lives".

So true.

Rest in Peace, Scott

Just Another Day as a Mom

Truly, I don't make a fuss out of Mothers Day. I don't demand dinner out or expensive gifts. But the Guy I Dig goes out of his way to make my day easy. He makes me my favorite breakfast and our favorite dinner, he showers me with love all day what more can I ask for? 

I have nothing deep or meaningful to say today that I haven't said before. Only one thing...

Once again ~
I am Blessed

Sunday Self #12 | A Different Take

Spent the day with Harrison, he's growing by leaps and bounds - literally. He reminds me daily to be a better mom and a better person.

How blessed I am.
