Wouldn't you know......

When I wrote my Mother's Day blog the other night I was nodding out, and wrote quickly.  I went back and read it, and Lord have mercy......I had so many errors......that one I should have proof read! firm that laid me off back in March has hired me back!  Imagine that! It started as me coming back on a temp basis last week, and after my first day the were offering a permanent position again!  I am kind of excited.  I like the people I work with there.  And, the past two jobs before this one I was out of work for 7 months each.  I couldn't afford that again.  My life will be total craziness again.  Working in family law does that to you.  Especially on a full-moon!  But I'm up for the challenge.......

I am lovin' life!

Another Happy Mother's Day.......Enjoy!

I think I've mentioned it in past blogs, but when I blog it comes from my heart.  That is probably why it is so up and down and all around.  I don't proof read, but say a prayer, click publish, and there it is.  This blog was meant to be a tribute to my mother.  I feel so blessed to have her......while so many of my friends has lost their parents, I am so lucky to have both my parents still with me.  This year, however, they are on their farm in Georgia.  As much as I am missing spending Mother's Day with my mom, I'm okay with sharing her with my family there..... 

So today I will pay tribute to all mothers....everywhere!  If you are a mother, you know the sacrafices we go through to ensure our children are healthy and safe.  It also opens our eyes as to the sacrafices our mothers went through.  I remember as a teen, yelling at my mother that I would never be the kind of parent she was.  I saw varied emotions in her face.  It was almost a look of hurt, yet a look of uh huh.......that's what you think.  That phrase "mother knows best" always comes to mind.  Really mothers do know best.  It's like God gave us that special touch to know just what our children need, and to have the insight into the future. mom knew I would end up parenting similar.  There are things that she did that I would not do to this day....but I have a special needs child.  Life has been quite different than it would have been had my son been your average kid.....  I still find myself realizing I am more like my mother than I ever thought I would.  ;-)

I wish all of you moms a Happy Happy Mother's Day!  If you can.....give your mom a hug and kiss.  Spend time with your babies......  Life is so precious, embrace the day!  Enjoy it and pamper yourself too.  We all deserve that!

Off my rocker.......

I really want to kick and scream.....  My life is good.  I am blessed.  I have my health, my friends and family, and for now a roof over my head, food to eat, and a car to drive.  But I need to have a moment......  I don't have a job.  No one is knocking on my door wanting to hire me to write or give me a book deal.  I am beginning to think I am a serial interviewee (if that is a real word).  I interview on a regular basis, but don't get hired.  I think I need a crash course in interview 101.  Either that or I need to go the route of finding a rich man who will support me.  Wait.......before you think I've gone off my rocker.  I am just venting.  I am doing it because I can.  Kind of like that old song, "It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want to!"  I am fast approaching 49.  Not that I'm getting old, but dang......  These law firms want fresh young college grads that they don't have to pay and are easy on the eyes.  It's true.  I have finally fallen into that rutt of being old in the work world, and it sucks!  Heck, maybe I have lost it.......  We shall see!  ;-)
