her visit

we miss gamma already...

Kenzie went downstairs today and looked for grandma. I guess she didn't understand the whole airport thing today- she was so upset that her shoe fell off in the car that she didn't grasp the concept that grandma was going back home.

My mom is alive to teach me many things. She pretends she doesn't have cancer but her body reminds her otherwise. She helped me so much these past 2 weeks. She got me motivated to organize and dejunk a little. She didn't think she was doing much because she didn't manhandle everything but I kept telling her that watching the kids for me while I worked was the biggest help of all- don't you mothers out there agree? She did my laundry and dishes- and even cleaned my bathroom.

My mom loves my children. She sings to them, plays with them, baths them- and even disciplines them-

It is amazing how we have choice. My mom gets discouraged- this I know- but she is still a fighter- filled with love, hope, and charity. She just doesn't give up. Whenever I spend time with her I am reminded of her incredible faith and how I have so much to be grateful for. I am thankful for her visit.

Thank you. I cried all the way home. It is always tough to leave your girls and my baby girl who has grown into such a beautiful soul. I a, now counting the days 'till Christmas.

Your mom is such a neat lady! She inspires me because she has many struggles yet she is always so happy. Glad you had a good visit with your mom.
