Wise Words

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news,
my mother would say to me,

‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’

To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’
I remember my mother’s words,
and I am always comforted by realizing that

there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”

{Mister Rogers}

Poor Buddy

Owen is home sick today….this is noteworthy because this is the first day of school that he has missed this year. Our own little mini miracle.

He doesn’t really even have a cold, just a cruddy cough that is constant and makes him gag.  The cough syrup and asthma meds aren’t helping, which tells me it is not his asthma…which frankly is another mini miracle for me…

He thinks he’ll be better by the day before Christmas, I am hoping for this Monday…


And since he is known as Mr. Smiley…


Even the gags can’t stop that sweet smile.

Thanks…I needed that…

Owen: “Mommy, you’re really close to 50, aren’t you?
