My heart's been SOOO heavy - and my body SOOOO weak.
I am really struggling to readjust after this trip.
Yesterday was my birthday - spent most of the day laying around - resting, grieving.
What made my day
and caused the biggest laugh I can remember in a long time
was my sweet Kylie's note for my birthday:
In case you can't read it:
I love you, Mom.
You are the bravest Mom I know.
You go to dangerous places
you have a kind heart
but sometimes you leave the hard jobs to Dad.
When I asked her later what she meant by me leaving the hard jobs to Dad
(she was in school when I read the note),
"Oh well ~ ~ ~ you know ~ ~ ~ taking care of us kids!"
I KNEW it (that's why I laughed so hard!) !
What does the proverb say:
"A cheerful heart is like medicine!"
Sure was for me yesterday!
Oh, how I love (my) KIDS!!!
