Reluctant Mother

I'm not pregnant. All you long-distant relatives and friends who frequent my blog - get that thought out of your head. But I think you all know that we are accepting whatever comes our way. We weren't expecting the twins and although they died I can't imagine our lives without them, for that short bit of time. I think things are meant to be, so we are just accepting whatever happens.

This is Why I Don't Garden

My mother has a green thumb. She has beautiful gardens and I love taking pictures of the kids for special occasions in her backyard. She has annuals and other plants that come out at different times of the year. She gets out in the yard in the cool spring to ready her plants for beautiful blooms in the summer.

Up until now I have convinced myself that I didn't inherit that gene, that I don't have the time or patience for that kind of commitment, and maybe I can do that when the kids get older. But Sunday I realized the real reason I can't garden.
