She asks for no rewards
She does all she can for her family
She even goes without sometimes
She stands alone
She does it all
day and night
night and day
She does it all for her family
She sacrifices all for her family
She delights all for her family
To my Mom, Marjorie, who is always been there for me …through rain or shine. I just want you to know I appreciate you and the life you give me. I appreciate the example you set for me and most of all I appreciate the unconditional love you give and continue to give me.
It is an honor to be your daughter.

The day didn’t start off with singing birds and warm sunny skies…Oh no…it had to be cold, gray and gloomy with a wicked brisk wind.
As I was happily crashing my toy trucks and trains into the blocks and into the wall (and sometimes into my brothers’ heads) the phone rang. I didn’t hear all that was said but did hear “…Oh that’s today?? It’s so yucky out.” And I thought we better not be going out!
And as I stood gazing out the window and saw the pine trees dancing up and down and back and forth, the one they call Mommy, the pretty one with the big brown eyes and the soft lilty voice entered the room with some clothes in her arms…and I thought “Oh no, we are going out…oh no.” My brother Noah immediately clapped his hands and cheered some unintelligible jibber and yelled “out! Out! Out!” and I smiled though I didn’t mean to.
We all three got corralled and clothed and shoed and then the one they call Daddy, the handsome dude with blue eyes and sandy blonde graying hair (don’t tell him I said graying…he still looks like he’s twenty years old) strapped us in the car. All this corralling, clothing, shoeing and strapping takes about half an hour. Then we were in the car and driving, which was pleasant but then as I was enjoying the ride, it was over and we were at what they call a park. I don’t know why they call it a park because we don’t park there…we jump, and run and play all around…we don’t park…well I can’t figure this stuff out.
Anyway, Joshua and I were then strapped in a double stroller by the one they call Daddy and the Mommy carried Noah. Well what a disaster…the wind was swirling all around us blowing the dust in our eyes. The Mommy yelled at the Daddy pull the canopy over their faces and the Daddy yelled “What?!” So we were wheeled off into the dust in the freezing wind to a section in the park where all these other Daddies and Mommies were standing around with their kids all bundled up…yeah ...freezing.
We saw our little friend Kaila and her brother Shawn and their Mommy and Daddy. And so we stood around for a bit and I just wanted to go home. I fell to the ground and started to wail and cry. The Mommy had to hold me most of the time so I would stop crying. And then all the Mommies and Daddies started counting 5-4-3-2-1 and then everyone started running. Why are they running? What’s going on?
The Mommy was yanking my hand saying “pick it up, pick up the egg.” And I just looked at her thinking egg? What eggs? We don’t have breakfast here, silly Mommy.” The grass was covered with colored odd shaped circles they called eggs. I fell to the ground and started to cry. I’m thinking “why are we here? Let’s go home...it’s too cold.” Then a shiny paper caught my eye and something they call candy beamed up at me. I picked it up along with the broken egg it was originally enclosed and started walking around. In the distance I saw Joshua and Noah with their buckets and they were spilling the eggs out on the ground and then I think the Daddy or a daddy yelled “he’s picking up poop.” Guess who? ... yeah Joshua. I think Josh thought it was a stick. Ha Ha Ha!
Anyway in less than 2 minutes the egg hunt was all over. And I was still cold but I smiled because I got my prize…my shiny gleaming candy. And Oh by the way, the Mommy and the Daddy in the rush forgot to bring the camera, so there are no pictures of Our First Easter Egg hunt….oh wait I think Kaila’s daddy took pictures of us. Maybe you’ll see those pictures next time.
On the ride back home, Joshua grabbed my shiny candy…I think I’m going to have a melt down...it’s coming, it’s coming…I’m now wailing…Hey, gimme back my candy!!!! Waaaaaawwwww!!!!
And yes, you guessed it…now we all three are wailing….Waaaaawwww!!! x3.

From the one they call Mommy: I don’t usually do posts like this but I thought my readers would like a little glimpse into my personal world. Hope you enjoyed it.
Wishing you all … Happy Passover! Happy Easter!
