In Search of Spring

I never thought I would be a single parent, but here I am. It's not easy juggling work and children. In fact, at times, it's nothing short of overwhelming. Every week, I have to deal with the laundry, the grocery shopping, cleaning, food preparation, playtime activities in addition to my full-time job. Since "Dad" lives thousands of miles away, and only visits his children every few months or so, I rarely if ever get a break. Do I regret having adopted my children? No way! They are the sunshine in my day, and the best things that ever happened to me. This has been a particularly difficult winter as the three of us have had a myriad of illnesses ranging from sinus infections to bronchitis. If only spring would get here. Then at least, going outside would be more bearable, and the cold season will be beyond us.

Hope you're getting outside today. It's beautiful! And, you're doing a great job with my nieces!
