Need to get outta this funk...

We have something good on the horizon for us. My husband may have a new position which would make things much nicer for us when he retires for good, and that would also come sooner than anticipated when this goes though.

On the other hand we have friends all around us with bad things happening. Marriages in trouble, health problems, financial problems with the economy the way it is, and just general sadness. My heart breaks for those with problems and I really wish there was a way to make their problems disappear. But, there is no magic wand to wave and have everything fine and dandy.

That makes it a little difficult to enjoy what is happening for us right now. It's hard to be happy about our prospects when there is so much sadness around us. It has led to many sleepless nights for me. (which doesn't help my fibromyalgia)

I truly hope things start looking up for those around us so we may all rejoice!

Mother's Day...

One bad thing about getting older is you send fewer and fewer Mother's Day cards. When I first married I sent cards to all the grandmothers, the mothers and even a few "second moms" that I had growing up. Now I'm down to just 2 cards, my mother and my mother-in-law.

That aside, I've had a fairly nice one today. We have gorgeous weather for a change. I was beginning to think we might have to build an ark here with all the rain we got. Today is beautiful blue skies and perfect temps too. I have the house opened up and am enjoying it all.

We found lots of deer tracks in the backyard this morning. Of course we put out deer feed so that helps. I love being able to watch the "wildlife" here. We have deer, groundhogs, foxes, red tailed hawks, eagles, and on and on.

Today has definitely been one of those "Life is Good" days. I have quite a few of those and I never get tired of them either.

I have lots of cleaning to do Mon and Tues since we have company coming in on Wed. So, I'm enjoying the day today and taking it easy. I hope all the other moms out there had a great day too.
