ROCK that Minivan

If you’ve had that discussion…about getting a new car…maybe for your growing family…and you trying to decide  SUV   or Minivan…

I get it…sometimes the minivan just doesn’t seem so cool…cruising down the road, but let me tell me why I rock that minivan. 

It's all about STORAGE CAPACITY!  Really excited for Mother’s Day Weekend…the kids and I are headed out for a cabin on a lake…and I have stuffed my minivan with two bikes, a bike trailer, 2 scooters, massive beach bag, backpacks for hiking, snacks galore, oh I also have room for 3 car seats.

But, I haven’t put in the suitcases yet. 

Uh-oh…

What are your Mother’s Day weekend plans?

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter

It happens everyday, you get one of those emails or you see a Facebook post of a nice little inspirational quote or a picture that you share on your page.  You write something like…"this is the best thing ever" really better then yesterday when I said that inspirational thing was the best thing ever."  But, really this, was the best thing I've seen in a whileI wanted to share it with you.  I posted it on my mom's Facebook page...  

Letter from a Mother to her child:

"My Dear, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way... remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day... the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionaly lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad... just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you.

Happy Mother's Day!
