Truthful Tuesdays...

My good friend Alicia over at http://aliciaclosner.wordpress.com/ admitted that she hadn't blogged in a while and shared some honest thoughts. That got me thinking about how lazy I've been about blogging, so here are my honest thoughts. I'll call this one Truthful Tuesdays...

I'm frustrated with the doctor. I was told that my recovery would take 3 weeks and on the 11th of June, it will be 2 months.

Got the proofs today from Ava's (my newborn niece) photo shoot and although they are absolutely beautiful, I realized that I've gained a lot of weight.

Have been out of my routine of running, tanning, and working out for the last 2 months.

I'm frustrated with myself for letting my routine go...

One day is not a routine, but today's 2 miles and tanning session is the start of my routine again.

Constantly thinks about a friend, that for some reason, we don't talk anymore.

I desperately need to wash underwear because I'm running low!

I find myself thinking about Africa and Tumaini every day, several times a day.

I'm mad and frustrated with Heart for Africa for no longer sponsoring Tumaini Children's Home.

Celebrated 5 years at work today!

Get to designate $250 to a 501(c)3 of my choice for being at Capital Group for 5 years, I'm praying about where to give the money- Heart for Africa or Miracle League of San Antonio.

Just realized that if I'd put away the basket of laundry that's been sitting on my bedroom floor for 3 weeks now, I'd have underwear to wear...

Good night, sleep sweet friends....

Happy Mother's Day

Here's to the mom's that I spend the most time with-

I hope you have an awesome Mother's Day!

To the beautiful woman who brought me into the world (and swears she can take me out too), who lets me lay on her lap in anticipation of a new baby in our lives, who's not very good at taking pictures, and who, in her 40+ years of living, doesn't care much about what her hair looks like anymore....

The same woman who holds the hand of her youngest daughter to comfort her in the frustrations and pains of labor...

The same woman who watches over her newborn granddaughter with a watchful eye, carefully counting all ten fingers and all ten toes.

Here's to the sister who is now spending her first mother's day as a true mother to the most beautiful little girl, Ava Rae.

The same woman who's taught me more about being a mommy in her first four days of mommyhood than I could ever know.

I love you both and am proud to have you in my life!

Until I can be a mommy one day too...
