Bereaved Mother...

I found this poem and I really loved it...
Do not judge the bereaved mother.

She comes in many forms.

She is breathing, but she is dying.

She may look young, but inside she has become ancient.

She smiles, but her heart sobs.

She walks, she talks, she cooks,

she cleans, she works, she IS

but she IS NOT all at once.

She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.

A child that loses a parent is an orphan.

A husband that loses his wife is a widower.

A wife who loses her husband is a widow.

However, there is no word for a parent that loses a child.

For there is no word to describe such pain.

Nothing really

There hasn't been much going on around our neck of the woods. We are loving the spring weather and taking advantage of it with keeping our windows open in the evenings! I love to feel the fresh in coming in the house. :) We traveled to Woodward last weekend to visit the family. Bree wore me out, but I love her anyway! go lots of snuggle time with Saywer and Jarebear also.
Bree had a rare sleeping moment and me and Shane wanted to run to Atwoods so Jarrett got to go with us! We got him these round house overalls he looked so cute in them! he even had old man butt :)

Later that even we all wanted to enjoy a snack of apples, and I got to have all three of the munchkins in my lap :) I'm so blessed to have them in my life and I'm so thankful they love me so much!

Sorry this pic is so blurry its from Shane's phone... This is my husbands latest creation the smoker/grill! He's so proud of it and I'm pretty proud of him to! I love that my honey can take two pipes and make a smoker/grill of of them :) He and his friend Darrin spent A LOT of time working on this thing! I can't wait to try it out. We'll have to wait til next week though because he's headed of to the lake for an all boys weekend... I'm spending sometime with my Momma and Aunt Karen. I hope all of you have a great weekend!
