"A Mother's Confession"

This was in our church bulletin last night for Mother's Day and I loved every word from this quotation. It made think about my mother and the importance of honoring her.

God Bless all you beautiful mothers! :)


"Not until I became a mother did I understand how much my mother had sacrificed for me.
Not until I became a mother did I feel how hurt my mother was when I disobeyed.
Not until I became a mother did I know how proud my mother was when I achieved.
Not until I became a mother did I realize how much my mother loves me."

-Victoria Farnsworth

One of my friends from work makes these amazing dolls out of leaves that are used for tamales. It's a Mexican Art Craft. I would like to say that it's remarkable and BEAUTIFUL! There is soooo much detail that goes into it and the painting is flawless! I LOVE IT! The doll in the picture is the first one she made. She is wearing regional folkloric clothing from the state of Yucatan in Mexico. That's where my father's family is from! My grandmother wore embroidered dresses everyday! :) This doll is a sweet reminder of her. So, it's in my office and when I look at it, it makes me smile.

I've Been In My Shell, well...sorta.

I've been in my own little bubble the past couple of weeks. I'm here, but not really. It's like a turtle with its head in its shell. Or, it could be that I've been pretty busy and wiped out. lol! I'm doing my best to take it slow and not live life 50mph which tends to be my downfall from time to time. It's not healthy because it does lead to burnout.

Overall, things are going well! Thankfully!
I hope you guys are doing wonderful! I miss ya'll! Really, I do.
Blessings and lots of love,
