  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

I must be doing something right….

I have had three recent incidents that confirm in my heart, that I just might….MIGHT….be a good mom.

The first…My daughter who is 15 has been nominated to the Upward Bound program at our local University. If she is accepted (we will know in 3 weeks), she will spend 6 weeks at the University, taking classes and learning what it takes to become a future college student. Yeah Sam!!

Second….A few weeks ago my middle one, 12 yrs old, found a gift card in the driveway. It was worth $100 to JC Penney’s. I could tell by the writing inside that it probably belonged to the neighbor upstairs. I was right, and his face beamed when she thanked him for not keeping it for himself. Yeah Joey!!

Third…this just happened a few minutes ago. My youngest, 10 years old, just came running in from the yard, asking for a trash bag. When I asked him what for, he responded “There is a rabbit in our yard near the trail the kids take to get to school, and there is a ton of trash. I want to clean it up for the rabbit.” Yeah Tommy!!

I have such cool wingnuts! But then again I just might be predjudice…..nahhhhhh that couldn’t be it.

Be blessed.

Ps-got the new couch today! Yeah me!!
