~ Humpty Dumpty ~

Humpty Dumpty, that's sort of what it feels like! Some of you may recall that on October 27, 2010 we had an EF1 tornado come through and damage our house. The repairs have been nothing short of a NIGHTMARE! I won't bore you with more of the gory details but FINALLY it seems we are back to normal!
This is what it looked like before. I had a tree expert come out the next day to see if there was any way our pear tree could be saved and was told that the root damage was too extensive so we sadly had to chop up our poor tree which made me so sad.
A couple weeks later we planted this little oak tree and he shed his leaves in the winter and got all new ones in the spring just like he's supposed to!
We had a new roof put on, siding and trim replaced, removed the damaged plants in the garden, and planted new.
So just like Humpty Dumpty, we are put back together again!
My heart goes out to all those who have gone through the recent tornadoes. I know there are so many who lost EVERYTHING with not even a house to come home to! That makes the issues I've been dealing with minimal in comparison!

Well that's going to be it for this time. Remember to do something each day that makes you happy!

Your Mother Is Always With You...

Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach
in your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your brow
when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside your laughter.
She's crystallized in every tear drop.
She's the place you came from,
your first home...
She's the map you follow
with every step that you take.
She's your first love
and your first heart break...
and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space...
Not even death...
will ever separate you
from your mother...
You carry her inside of you...

Happy Mother's Day to all.
