It's no secret that things have been less than desireable this year, and last year...
We are off to a rocky start to put it mildly... so bad in fact that my family has created
the phrase 'The Kimmie Curse'
anything bad that could happen, will happen to Kimmie
Everyone always says, 'bad things happen for a reason', or 'dont worry, it wont last forever'
Stuff like that ticks me off mostly because, obviously THIS particular trial will soon pass, but that doesnt change the fact that I have to deal with it at that moment... and not only that, but 'THE KIMMIE CURSE' can assure that another trial is not too far behind, or in most cases about to overlap the current crisis...
Sorry, I didn't mean to go off on that tirade my point is... I'm ready for it to end.
Just when I thought 'this is really rock bottom' and I was about to get mad at someone telling me, 'there's no where to go but up,' something happened...
I was sitting at work, staring into the abyss and wallowing in self pity when I decided to check my email.
I almost passed out...
I honestly think that I shrieked a little...
There in my email in-box was, a TRAVEL ITINERARY!
What could this be? I cautiously clicked on the email AND wait for it...
MY MOM IS COMING!!! MY MOM IS COMING!!
I'm tearing up right now just thinking about that sentence...
Not just coming, she will be here NEXT WEEK!!!
For those of you that don't know, my mom and sisters are my VERY BESTEST FRIENDS!
We live in 4 different states and don't get to see each other very often.
Last year I got to see my sisters probably 4 or 5 times.
But my mom... oh my mom... I haven't seen her since LAST APRIL 2010... longest time ever
I'll let you in on a little secret... My mother has MAGICAL POWERS. True that she cannot wave a magic wand and make all the bad things go away. But really just having her around fixes everything. I'm not sure how, but like I said... MAGICAL POWERS.
She is AMAZING!
WE will craft, sew, scrapbook, shop, decorate, eat chocolate, cook, watch some chick flicks, beach it up... all the things that people should have in their lives and I wish I had on a daily basis.
I live with 2 boys, manly men, and I NEED a mommy fix in a BAD WAY.
Truly this is the BIGGEST BLESSING at the PERFECT TIME
Finally I can say... THINGS ARE LOOKING UP!
