It's ok to burn the bread

When I was growing up holidays were particularly stressful events. Every time we attempted to gather together as a family there would be some unbelievable drama of some sort. Not your garden variety holiday angst but very difficult and painful situations for everyone.

When I had my own family I was able to finally have those beautiful and peaceful gatherings that filled my heart with joy. I am so very grateful that I have such a wonderful family that it's ok even if I burn the bread!

I love you with all of my heart and thank you for being my family!

Perfect Moments

I have been very blessed in my life to have had so many wonderful moments but there are few that compare to what I experienced tonight.

As my sweet grandson and I curled up on the sofa to watch "Winnie the Pooh" he wrapped his arms around me and fell fast asleep. I sat there just watching him and tears came to my eyes knowing that this is one of the most perfect moments of my life.
