Morning Meanderings…. Mother’s Day


It one of those days that I want to take out my Harry Potter wand and say,


Of course 1. I do not own a Harry Potter wand.  and 2.  well, it would not change a thing.

I planted flowers yesterday in the back yard and this morning while out sitting at Justin’s bench I took a couple of pictures of my handy work. I have been on an emotional roller coaster with Justin’s benefit last weekend, his birthday this past Monday and now Mothers Day.  I feel around this time of year that I can not catch a break.


A break is coming though.  On Tuesday morning I will get into my car, put on an audio book and start driving to Chicago for the book expo.  That is pretty crazy for me who has really come to like my home A LOT this past year – yet I know this will be good for me to get out into the world doing what I love and seeing other reviewers such as many of you.  That…. makes me smile.

Today my son Brad and my husband Al are grilling and making a brunch for me.  That is sweet as Justin was the planner in the family for things such as this and to watch these two try to come up with a plan is sweet.  They know I do not want to go out anywhere so we will stay here, in my own little sanctuary where I can smile, and laugh, and cry all at once and not have people look at me that do not understand.


And with that – Happy Mother’s Day to all of you.  No matter where you are at today or what those word’s mean to you.  For all of you hurting on a day like this, please think about something positive to make you smile and know and know and know that you are not alone.

  1. Sending you a hug and a smile, Sheila. Wish I could make it to BEA but look forward to your posts about it. Have a great time!

  2. You are in my thoughts- I can only imagine how difficult this time of year must be for you! Hugs!

  3. I totally understand about not going out in public during the holidays. When we lived in Minnesota, I told my husband the restaurant’s would be crowded and it would be better if he cooked me a steak at home. Family time is precious and making memories and life an experience is something to teach our kids. Love you and miss you.

  4. Nice your husband and son arranged a Mothers Day at home for you, where you could relax and cry and laugh as you felt called to do.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
