I received a great package from my Secret Pal...

I just wanted to let my Secret Pal know that I received my first package and what a package it was. I promise pictures soon. I thank you my Secret Pal for all the great, great goodies that you so blessed me with. I have been so busy with working, I have been blessed with a job that I am able to work out of my home and now I have taken on another part time job and I am still able to work out of my home and take care of my three young boys. God is good. So pls forgive me for not posting. Just pray for me that I will be able to get my act together and be able to handle both jobs and still have time for my children and my husband.

It has been one of those months!!!!

It has not been a great month for me, I lost my mother last year on the 25th of May and her birthday is the 30th of this month. My poor husband just does not know what to do with me. I tell him that I am ok and then I just start crying and feel so sad. I know that that my Mom is in a better place and that she is not hurting anymore but still damn it I miss her and wish that she was still here. This will be the first Mother's Day without her and I am not sure that I am going to be able to put on a happy face but on the other hand I have been blessed with three wonderful boys and I know in my heart that my mom would not want me to sad on this day. So just pray for me that I will be ok and be able to keep a smile on my face. I know that the next year and year after that and year after that it will be better.

I did get to go to a Mother's Day party at my three years old preschool today and he made me this heart ornament (cinnamon and apple sauce) it sure smells good. I do not have any pictures yet but let me tell you that my house smell goods. My cristian was so happy to give me his present today. I tell you even though this is a sad time for me, those type of presents are the best. I just love the ones that my children make me and also the cards that my husband make me. I have been with my husband for 20 years and I have all the homemade cards that my husband has made me over the years.

My sister in love went to Japan and I asked her to send me a kimno and she informs that it will take me about 21/2 hours to put it on and that it will cost me $500.00 in US money, of course I told her that I would rather spend that amount of money in her etsy store. So instead she send me a silk robe and all kinds of other goodies. Here is a picture for you to see:

As you can see in the picture that I got yarn, needles, more yarn, candy for my kids but of course they have eaten them already (I too had to help them) and some chop sticks that are why to cool.

Thanks Susie you are the best sister in love and my friend. Also she is the one that taught me how to knit just about a year ago. If you are interested go and say hello to her I will also have a link to her Etsy store on the right side under links soon.

I can't end this post without some pictures of my boys.

Here is my Tyler (he is just too cute)

Here is Cristian ( he is just too much)

Here is my Trevor (now this one is just way to cute)

Look at how blessed I am. Good night blog world. Until we meet again.
