IMPORTANT– For all those who have reported to me they are no longer receiving my email updates, I have just as of today signed onto a new service Mail Chimp which is much more reliable….you will once again start RELIABLY getting my emails again….so sorry!! Hi there, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Its been a crazy 2 days…..I had started working out a few months ago and in the last few weeks I was having intermittent pain in the back of my knee. Went to my sons game on Friday and upon climbing the bleachers something very painful happened to my knee. I basically couldn’t walk, talk about scary! So……was going to go to hospital for an MRI however its not located on the ground floor (I have not taken an elevator in 22 years and have no plans of doing so ever again). Instead I am waiting it out until Monday when the other place that does MRI”S (on the ground floor) will open and my Dr. will meet me there. The only good news is that this morning I was able to walk somewhat (with a limp) to my computer which I have greatly missed! So in pouring over article after article….I am thinking and very much hoping that this not a full tear but instead either a severe pull/slight tear.? Will find out tomorrow! So its not quite the Mothers Day I had planned but this is life, and you just have to roll with it…….in the meantime I want to wish every single mother out there a wonderful, enjoyable, happy, love filled day. May you get to do just as you please, whether its go on a shopping spree, stay in bed and be served all day long or do something in the great outdoors! It’s a day to honor those that to me, do the hardest job on earth…one that is a 24/7 gig! A special “shout out” to my own Mother who has been an incredible mom. Thank you for loving and taking care of us unconditionally with all the love, kindness and generosity there is to give. I will always be grateful and always look up to you as “the ideal” to follow and learn from. You are amazing! A few things to share on the subject of Mother’s Day…. This video is so familiar (happens every time right around the time Christmas card picture season hits) so I could totally relate…..anyone else? And being a Mom is a beautiful thing whatever the species…….. This one is for my mom, I know her well and know she will loooove this picture:) Finally on a parting note, this is something I think all of us Moms should have printed and posted to a wall that everyone in our family sees all the time, as? a “friendly reminder” of all we have done! The stats are impressive:) Now you tell me a job that delivers this kind of productivity…I don’t think you could find one:) Hope this made you smile….Happy Mothers Day to all!
