*It's been cloudy, gloomy, and wet the past few days and looks as though it will continue that way for the rest of the week. It's a good time to get things done inside but a bad time for hyper, restless children.
*Speaking of children, poor Amy is coming down with a cold and must feel miserable, judging by her whining and clingy attitude. This is sooooo unlike her so I hope that she gets to feeling better soon.
*May looks to be a very busy month! My sister's graduation party, our 13th wedding anniversary, Joe's 6th birthday, Mother's Day, a bridal shower that I'm helping to put together for my soon to be sister-in-law (yes, a wedding in the near future! My older brother is getting married in June!). It should be a full but fun month! May has always been my favorite month with lots happening and everything in bloom.
*I've had a lot more hard days recently. Maybe it was finalizing Jacob's headstone. Maybe it's remembering this time last year when we still had him, but knew we were going to lose him. Maybe it's just the way grief ebbs and flows. Regardless, I try to make an effort to choose happiness. Happiness is a choice. It's not always easy but it's better than the alternative. Jacob is with God, God is with me...I am comforted by that.
