Lazy Sunday - More To Be Thankful For

Sunday Evening – It’s Mother’s day in these parts and although I have the greatest and kindest kids on this planet – today is bitter sweet for me.   It was a tough road to get here, almost 10 years, and there were days that looked hopeless; yet I persevered and I faced the truth, and followed my heart to these two little ones. 

Five years ago today, was their first day of school

Now this is what they look like,I have teenagers

What saddens me, a little is I had no idea how little they were, I blinked, looked what happened.

If I had known that the years would pass so quickly, I would have done more to stop the time.

I hope as they continue to grow and learn, they always know that they are loved, protected, nothing will stop me from helping them to succeed and make good choices, even if I have to embarrass myself, nothing will get in my way for these two.

My ten thankfuls today are:

Pretty Gerber Daisies

Messages of love

A beautiful bracelet from Amelia, who was able to get it from her class by earning tickets

A Quiet warm Sunday

An air-conditioned bedroom - (thanks Nicky for that)

Dinner, I did not have to cook

Lunchtime walks, I am averaging over 4,000 steps per day! Yay!

A delicious salad for lunch, one day last week – I made it at the office: Cucumber, Avocado, and Carrot with a squeeze of lime, lightly seasoned with salt and black pepper.

He makes me happy!

My Mom – she makes me happy- thank you for being my mom!


  1. FRIST?! I'm on a roll tonight!
    My son will be 20 next month, but I swear he was 3 just a few weeks ago. It really does go by quickly. I wish I had written down more things about them, funny things they said and did. When they happened, I was sure I would remember them, and, sadly, I don't.
    Love the grumpy face on Amelia in the top picture, and I love the one of you and your mom as well - very sweet!
    I hope you've had a happy Mother's Day, Marisa! I've finally written my Mustache post and will publish it tomorrow!
