Night Night

I'm off to bed, but just wanted to say how excited I am about the support I've gotten on my jewelry adventure!  It's been so wonderful to see others enjoying what I've put together!  I'm trying some new things and loving it.  Other than that I'm busy with my little ones.  Keeping them amused on these rainy days is getting difficult.  All the more reason I need my energy!  To bed!  I'm working on trying to get to bed earlier.  I guess it didn't go too well tonight.  Thankfully, there's always tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day!
That is to all of you who are mothers and all of you who long to be.  Today can be a wonderful day or a very hard one (for many reasons - hopes unrealized, miscarriages, abortions, rough relationships with your own mom or having lost her).  I wanted to recognize that today is not like any other day.  May it be a wonderful and healing day for YOU.
