If you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
I believe this. I believe we can make amazing things happen if we are kind, and work hard. Amazing things will happen to US. We can become the people we always have envisioned being.
I had a great day yesterday on Mother's Day. My darling Daughter got off work early afternoon, and we worked on the kitchen, cleaning and laughing, and then we made some AWESOME taco salads for dinner. It is so fun to just sit with her, and see what kind of adult she has become. I am so proud of her, proud of the person she is, proud of her intelligence, humor and empathy. Could not be a better way to celebrate Mother's Day!!
I also called my Mom fairly early in the morning, and read her the poem I had written for her. It was hard to read to her, with all my emotions swirling in my head, knowing that next year, Mom may not be mentally able to comprehend Mother's Day. Obviously, I didn't say anything, but it hit me really hard. I know these kinds of things are so hard on my Dad, who loves her so much.
They are driving out from California in a couple weeks to visit us. I am really looking forward to seeing them. I am glad my Dad has the love for Mom that he does, so he can tolerate the constant questions that get repeated MANY times a day with people experiencing brain issues. The lucky part of all of this, is that this did not manifest in my Mother until her 80's. Late, but she has had a wonderful life, and I know she would say that it has been full, and full of love.
I hope you all have a magnificent week, and make this Monday one to remember.
