– Today was one of those days, really happy and really busy. First the happy. It is my daughter Kaitlyn’s birthday. I cannot believe 23 years have flown by and today I have a gorgeous, smart, kind-hearted daughter that I love with all of my heart. I still remember bringing a seven pound baby home and being petrified to give her a bath because she was slippery. Somehow she survived my bath fears and being my oldest. Katie grew up with me, since I began my family so young. I wouldn’t change it for the world. She gave me purpose and meaning. I hope I gave her strength, love and taught her a thing or two. I always strove to be so much more so I could give her a good life. I know I was not a perfect parent and she knows she was not always a perfect daughter, but I think we both know that is what makes a mother-daughter relationship so grand; one happy roller coaster ride. Seeing her this week is going to make it simply marvelous.
– Now for the busy…last full week of school. All of you educators know exactly what I am talking about. Feeling drained and desperately needing a break. I also desperately need some time to get back to the gym 🙂
– If you are an educator and getting a bit tired (especially us frazzled parents). I found a great article today by another blogger and it really made me smile.
Here is hoping for a great week for all.
