Smile Sunday - Many Thanks

"Each day is a gift. Make sure to enjoy this "present" we have been given and give thanks." ~Mama Hen

Thank you to all of my dear friends who have given me support during a very stressful and difficult time. The two people in the picture to the left are my whole world! Little Chick and I love and need my mom in our lives. The other day was truly frightening for me and I am thankful that it was not life threatening. However, for the period of time that I thought it was, it was the scariest thing since my Dad's passing. I felt so many emotions and it absolutely took the stuffing out of me. Watching my mom in all the pain she is in has been physically and emotionally painful for me. I know I need to be strong so I can help her in every way possible. Little Chick and I have been trying our best to cheer her up. We got some giggles out of my mom today and that is something worth smiling about. Have a great Smile Sunday!

  4. I have thought of your mom several times today, so I'm especially glad to see this post. I know it was truly scary for all involved. I hope her pain has been alleviated. Is that a current pic? Is your mom able to be up and around, or is she having to keep still? I hope this can be resolved without surgery and soon. Blessings on you all.

  25. Sometimes laughter can be the best medicine. I understand how Little Chick and your mom are your world. I live right nextdoor to my mom--we have a duplex house, and my favorite days are when she, Little Lewie, and I go to the park or play together. I hope both your mom and Little Chick will be feeling better soon...Thoughts and prayers are being sent your way!
