Tiny Blessings

The past week or so has been challenging for myself as well as my little family. My husband has started working odd hours and its taking its toll. I don't think I've ever really appreciated what single moms have to go through until I was in their shoes to an extent. Today was an especially trying day. CJ is still cutting 3 teeth and I didn't get much sleep last night. So we were both pretty cranky today. CJ finally settled down for a nap today and I took a breather. I crocheted, I swept the kitchen and I folded a load of clothes. And then I sat down at the computer to chat with a friend still feeling stressed. And then came a knock at my door. I open it to find my brother standing there with a bouquet of beautiful flowers from my mom, him and my sister. I don't know how, motherly intuiton I guess, but my mom always knows when I need a pick me up. Now if I could only learn to take advantage of her willingness to babysit. lol

Have a wonderful night,
Mrs B

I'm glad you like the flowers.

And really need to take advantage of that babysitting (it's free, you know!!!) service. *big grin*

Love you lots, Mama
