lovey dovey

I love my family!

I am a wife, mother of three beautiful boys, and a middle school administrator. At times, I have mistakenly tried to achieve perfection in each role. These attempts always fail miserably because there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom or a perfect worker! I decided to relinquished my pursuit of perfection…I can say without guilt that my shortcomings are vast and my mistakes many. Embracing my imperfections and turning my life over to God has been freeing and led to a sweeter life. I found that when I quit trying so hard, that SOMETIMES things magically fall into place and for brief moments I am “Supermom.”

Missing Mom

When I pulled out my Easter decorations a couple of weeks back, I unwrapped this carefully packed rabbit and blown egg.  It is special to me and my eight year old, because we decorated the egg together about six years ago for his nanny, my mother.  Nanny died about four and half years ago, so this little treasure is ever so special to us.  My mom had it in a curio cabinet year round, not worried that it wasn't "in season" with the decor.  She displayed it because she knew little hands made it for her with love.  We miss you mom!  I wish you were here to see my little guys in their Easter outfits and to meet my two little ones that you never got to hold.  I bet Easter is great in Heaven!
