A day dedicated to only my children and my family.
It took some time to come up with "Meaningful Mondays", I had so much help with plays on wording from friends, so many great ideas... and as I was going to pick one to write this post... I visited my mom in the hospital.
I knew she was going in for a procedure today. She refused to let anyone go with her and drove herself to the hospital. She had an Angiogram, as my mom is a heart patient and has had shortness of breath and a very bad reading when she wore a heart monitor for a week.
Up until this evening I didn't know which one of my children or family events I wanted to write about, but when I left the hospital, I thought to myself..."My mom means a lot to me"... And there you have it. Meaningful Mondays.
Mom had to have 3 stints put in. Hopefully she will be out of the tomorrow. Mom is still having shortness of breath and her heart rhythm is off so I hope they find the cause of her issues, by her rhythm being off, I mean that she is having constant heart palpitations and says that her heart feels as if it is "rolling".
Please... Feel free to pray for my mom. Mom is 61, she's already had open heart surgery... 15 years ago. She could use your prayers.
Here is my mom combing Hannah's hair when we visited tonight.
When I took this photo my mom reached behind her to make sure her butt crack wasn't hanging out! It was funny :) I assured her that I didn't take a photo of her backside!
Why does it take someone being in the hospital or for bad things to happen before we stop and think "Hey I really love that person!!". Is that human nature? Or just selfish nature? Or perhaps, we just get so busy living life, that we forget the most important aspects of living!
I will be grateful for every day that I have with my mother.
I will be grateful for every day that I have with my children. I will focus on the good and not on the bad and above all else I will remember life is short and life is precious.
I will not sweat the small stuff.
