When Life gives you lemons....
Some of us even ask neighbors to share.
We soak them and wash them and take in the aroma...
When life gives a Mother lemons...
When Life gives a Mother lemons she searches out sweetness.
The bitterness softened as the life force is opened.
We make a way to turn what is sweet into a fluid ample to feed our families.
When life gives us lemons we mothers learn how to turn sugar into syrup so the grit is removed.
We must like our knives keep our wits sharp about us.
turning a firm fruit tender by embracing it rolling it into submission.
We use what is at hand to turn our bitter fruit into sustenance.
We strain out the choking challenge until all is gain and goodness.
It is in this that we as Mothers grow.
For it is in the life of a Mother that when life gives us lemon we are the ones who turn it into lemon aide. We aid them with the wisdom gained through every bitter little ball.
This week I have had the joy of both children home. Unfortunately ill.
My "Mothers Day" has been a gift of their every moment presence.
Dash made soy ice cream churning.
That smiling little boy had good results with the anti-biotic and Tylenol.
Sissy was a little slower in recovery she has been ill for a week or so Three weeks total. We went in Saturday and got a new anti biotic for the one they gave her did not kill the germ that is attacking her sinus.
I awoke to the sweet family and not being able to breath. Saturday night I was drowning! I had to come out to the couch so Daddy who was sick by Saturday night could rest.
I was to nice and did not do a breathing treatment because I did not want to wake up every one.
Beloved snapped a shot of me I am glad to say that although I look like the dead I feel much better this afternoon.
I rested a lot today and then by afternoon rallied.
The kids were such a delight.
This Mothers day I got it.
Mothers day was turned into a time when everyone is supposedly to greet us and thank us.
But it is Mothers Day that is the gift
Every day being a Mother.
I was truly blessed
This Mothers day.
My family needs this Mother every day.
That is the treasure,
the rose in the vase.
