I just had a wonderful mother's day weekend! I used to hate Mother's Day. Mother's Day used to remind me of all the things I wasn't doing or being but now I just enjoy it. This year each one of my children sent such thoughtful remembrances and it was nice to have Sara and Jay's family visit. Sara and Jay are just in the "thick" of parenthood with three small children. We took an enjoyable walk Saturday on Rexburg's new Greenbelt and found out it is mostly incomplete and looks mostly like an old train yard but we had a good family time anyway. One pleasant surprise in my life is how much I enjoy being a grandma!
Well so much for my first post on a blog. Thanks to Sara for setting me up. I guess someday I'm going to have to enter the 21st century instead of just being proud I can do word processing and e-mail. I've discovered that one advantage to blogging is that you don't have to do it with the stigma of a wheelchair and you can be the real person you are inside. Beides no one sees the "ugly cry" when you are writing about something touching. All in all, it has been a great weekend of firsts for me including my first pedicure.
