So I mowed the yard today, front and back. We have never had a lot of grass, but it has gotten better in the last few years. But now, well, the front is turning into dirt again. Why? Well, we put up a basketball goal. Yea, in the front yard. So, now, little feet and big feet, small basketballs and big ones, tromp thru the grass. So now, it's dirt. So today when the wind was blowing the dirt up and around me, and I couldn't get to the very edge of the drive way, since the goal is there and all, it occured to me. Grass won't grow there. Not anytime soon anyway, the feet and the balls, they keep it from coming up. But the next thought made me a little teary eyed...what happens when it will grow there?

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a teacher, but as I got older all I wanted to be was a mommy. When I met Mike, a few dates in, I told him that it was my goal to stay at home and be a mom. He smiled and said he thought that could be arranged. Here I am, living my dream. Doesn't seem like much to some, but it is everything to me. I am so blessed to be able to be here in the afternoons and here all summer. I get to be with them for school field trips and awards assemblies, all the big stuff and the little stuff too. I know that they will get bigger and I won't be cool anymore, but I am going to enjoy this while I can. Someday I will blink and the time will be gone....My boys, 2 of my lifes biggest blessings. I hope your mother's day was wonderful, mine sure was. Be Blessed....
