mother’s day miracles!

mother's day mosiac

Today we are celebrating…

Balloons– I woke up before I was supposed to, so I helped Jorge blow up 100 balloons in my living room for my celebration. Gotta leave it to the event manager husband to come up with the best idea to show you are loved and worth celebrating. Lucy was delirious…”Let’s get this party started!” she kept saying while twirling. And the ole’ sucking helium and singing like the chipmunks is the best silly fun! ever.

Responsible Giving– Let’s just say it was HUGE progress for my family to give me a gift within the budget. HUGE, huge progress people! and now I have a lovely starter nest egg for my super wow camera I’m going to buy after I’ve SAVED for it!

Dreams– a random conversation this morning , “I hope your dreams come true Jackie-boy.”  I said.

 “Me too, except the bad ones. But I’ve only had like 3 of those.” he replied.

I think our dreams are coming true. I’m waiting for one more phone call but I think we are gonna make our GOAL!!! We are at 3754 pencils but we have 2 BIG donation counts coming very soon. It looks like we will do it!!!!

A Mother’s Day Miracle– I’ve been feeling pretty low about a lot of things lately and I just knew the only thing that would help me is to pick strawberries….I’ve called every day this week hoping they would be ready. It was looking bleak, I tried one more time this morning and THEY ARE OPEN!!!! I can’t tell you what this means to me. I told the farmer it was a mother’s day miracle, he laughed and told me to “come on already!”

I hope you are feeling deeply loved if you are a mother, or should be a mother, or are a mother to the earth, the world, to those around you. May you been seen, really seen, for all that you are. May the joy of all your giving be returned to you today…

    Have fun picking strawberries! We’re still more than a month away, I’m afraid. I can’t wait until we have our own fresh berries, too. There are few things in life that are better.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    Where, where, where did you find strawberries ready to pick??? There is a mom I befriended last year when she lost her daughter – we went picking last year and she loved it! I visited her yesterday and she was talking about those strawberries again… I promised her to look into it, and what do I find not 24 hours later?? Your strawberry mother’s day message! So tell me where to go, wouldja? I mean, for strawberries. : )

    Oh, that sounds weird to say I befriended her… like a dog or something. Not what I meant. She was just someone in obvious need of some care and attention and it worked out last year for me to give those things. I have not been as able to do so this year, but it was great to see her yesterday and I do want to take her to pick berries.

    I absolutely adore strawberries and I am obsessed with making as much things with strawberries that I can. I do this every year. And today? We’re going strawberry picking, too! Here in SoCal, it’s probably not as nice or pretty as where you are. We’re doing it at a big strawberry field located next to a freeway. lol. I L-O-V-E picking strawberries, the bite of the first one picked and the red fingertips. I hope you have a fantastac day, Patience. Happy Mother’s Day to you!

    Hope the strawberry picking was perfect! I hate to admit it, but I’ve never picked a berry, apple or fruit of any kind. Where was i in my childhood?
