It was with sadness that I said goodbye to my mom today. We had a great visit of almost two weeks. Arizona is really far away, but I am blessed that she makes the trip out to see us twice a year. My home sparkles while she is here... the kitchen is magically clean at all times... the kids' laundry is continually caught up... and things are just better organized by the time she leaves. We speak on the phone several times a week, but being together in person is always better! I enjoyed our time running errands, window shopping, cooking, and just hanging out. It was a good visit and I look forward to the next one!!!
People think I am organized... but I'm not. I always say, "I am start-up not maintenance" because while I like to organize, I have a hard time keeping things that way! Moving a lot throughout my life has probably contributed to that particular characteristic. I feel most alive when I am being creative... whether it is on the computer, scrapbooking, sewing, deccorating, cooking, or with my kids. I love my family, friends, and the Lord. I am thankful for my fabulous husband. My life is very blessed... definitely not perfect... but absolutely blessed!
