Somethin old somethin new,borrowed and blue(day 6)

Notice the bangle bracelet on my wrist and my daughter's (miss priss) blue flowered shirt. . . Today I put on this bracelet that use to be my moms ( who passed away 3 yrs ago) and I put this cute blue shirt on miss priss that use to be mine as a child and I didn't have a thought of sadness. Although I miss my sweet mom more than anything, I had feelings of joy. Joy that I had these special possessions and as I walked hand in hand with miss priss I envisioned my mom and I doing the same about 20 years ago, her with the bracelet and me with the blue shirt. Today I felt blessed to have this small piece of her to hold onto as opposed to dwelling on the void of her being gone. I am grateful to her for preserving these things for me to cherish and still love and miss her with all my heart. I want to say thank you to everyone who is supportive of my new optimistic blog and say that it really has helped me to start being optimistic:)
p.s. my give away starts tomorrow afternoon:)

I love the new idea for your blog Karla! And what a sweet picture of you both, I love the meaning behind it. I have such a hard time staying positive from day to day, being a mom is sooooooooo hard. I have really enjoyed seeing and hearing about all the sweet moments in your life that make you happy :)

Like your new outlook. Potty training was harder with my oldest. I read "diaper free before three" It was helpful but just to warn you the author is a bit of a purest!! Good luck with your next attempt.
