Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Overwhelming Love

Funny how something as simple as scrubbing the bathrooms, cooking and cleaning has given me this incredible peace. And, this overwhelming feeling of love for my husband. Finally, after seven months of wondering what was going to happen - I feel like this Thanksgiving may be the most blessed of them all. We've endured so much in our 10+ years. Last Thanksgiving, I was just grateful that my mom was alive after open-heart surgery. Now, she's back to her crazy old self. Less than a month ago, I didn't know how we were going to make it through this month financially. Now, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Things are still tight for another few months as we get back on our feet, but we have something to look forward to. I feel like things are as they should be - and that brings me a contented feeling that I honestly haven't had in months. My honey didn't land his dream job, but he has a job. That is more than we can say for so many people. He knows that and he is making the best of it. Are we both pretty much working two jobs? Yes, but I'm so blessed that my jobs can be done while the children are sleeping or at school. So, I'm still here for them. Not many mothers have that blessing. I have so much to be thankful for this year. I hope each of you finds that same peace and joy this holiday season.

And, the song? That is one my dear husband picked out for me. I sort of like it. I can rage like a river ...
