For the past 6 years I have worked a forty plus hour work week, volunteered with special Olympics and big brother/big sister, and done other activities to keep me busy. For the past two weeks I have only worked 15-20 hours and it's killing me. I decided to hold off in volunteering somewhere as school starts in two weeks. I know that I should enjoy my time relaxing, but it's driving me crazy not having anything to do. I guess I could make a quilt or do scrap booking to pass the time. All this free time is making me go crazy.....I know I'll eat my words in a couple weeks.....as for now....I'm so bored.

So, I went home this weekend for Mother’s Day, and I have to say that I love moms. Especially mine. I have been thinking a lot lately about the Mom’s in my life and I just want to take a few moments to honor them. My mom always makes me laugh, and is the most amazing woman ever. If I could ever be like anyone in the world it would be her. My mom has always been there for me, and always knows what to say to make me feel better. She has taught me so much about life, and I am so grateful for having such an inspiring person as my mom. The next mom I want to honor is my grandma. I miss my grandma so much, and I have thought about her a lot lately. My grandma raised 10 beautiful daughters who all turned into wonderful moms, and 4 handsome sons. My grandma lost her husband when my mom was 16 and raised 8 by herself. If there was anyone I have gained strength from it is her. She had a way of opening hearts and stepping in….she was funny….loving….compassionate……….and was one of the most Christ-like people that I knew. I miss her every day, and only hope that one day I might gain her strength and compassion. The next mom I want to honor is my sister. My sister is such a great mom to her children, and has been the best sister a girl could ask for. She always has time to listen to my petty problems, and is stronger then she will ever know. She is beautiful and intelligent, and I hope she one day realizes the potential that she has. I love her and hope one day I can be half the woman she is. The last Mom I want to honor is my sister-in-law Tiff. She has such a big heart, and has helped my brother so much. Tiff is so smart and is such a wonderful mother and step mother. Tiff has one of the biggest hearts I have ever seen, and she uses her love to influence people to be better. I know she will go far in life, and I hope one day to have half the heart that she does. Today I am so grateful for those women in my life who have made me better. I love you!!
