It is my home, my neighborhood, and my history. It is what I am and where I came from. Embarrassing? Yes Boring? Never

Mother's Day Part One, Reality Check

I have a friend that used to joke with me because I seemed to be running a home for unwed mothers, between Zowie and Number One's baby mamma's. But I think I have passed on my title.

I went to my brother's ex wife and my brothers two daughters. Now he died in December and I do not want to loose touch with his girls and I always liked this wife (which is by the way 5 of his 6 wives) She married well her second time around, and then the poor new husband had a near death experience. and is semi paralyzed to the point that their bed room is a hospital room. My god, I could not be this woman! She has a pregnant daughter, custody of her other daughter's two year old and a paraplegic husband. And I thought she had a lot to put up with when she was married to my brother! Angel and I were just in shock most of the day, which, in case you have not realized yet, is not a state that is easily achieved. Then they told us they were ALL leaving the next day and driving to Disney!!! How completely insane!!

You know, I think I am going to have the best Mother's day ever because of this day. It makes me appreciate what I have and especially what I don't have! I spent the entire day with my daughter, shopping, laughing, just enjoying her. We shared cheese cake. It does not get much better than that. She showered me with gifts through out the day, which made Mother's Day Part One, about as sweet as it could ever be!!!
