mazel tov (Hebrew meaning good luck)

MY MY MY Is it actually true that I am up at 7:00 AM reading the dictionary in search of new intriguing and exciting M-words? Not an online dictionary MIND you but a blue bound for real hold in your hand Webster's New World dictionary. Oh how I love this 1975 published piece of work! There is MUCH to MOTIVATE ME this MORNING as I MINDLESSLY turn page after page of black and white (dingy white).

MY heart continues to be on the MEND with MOTHER'S Day 2011 slipping quietly behind me. I MUST add that I MANAGED TO MANEUVERED the dreaded day with MINIMUM MELT-DOWNS, and MANY MOMENTS of MOTHERLY delights. MAYBE that was due in part to planning well and MAKING time for ME. MOTHER'S Day was MORE than just a Sunday this year it was entire week-end.

With my girls, MALLORY, and MADDIE (and MY MARVELOUS husband) we celebrated the life of their fabulous MOTHER with a quite little MEMORIAL at Rhonda's grave. I MARVELED as the girls happily scattered roses petal that had been MINDFULLY placed into a Premier jewelry box just for this MOMENT. I even MANAGED TO MAINTAIN a smile as I reflected on the 35 years of joy this MUTI-TALENTED , creature had brought to MY life.

A MEGA dose of ME time included a MORNING of MUCH coffee and MOVIE time (Steel MAGNOLIAS thanks to a recent post from a "new" friend's blog and good MEDICINE for the MOMENT) . Rested and relaxed the MOTHER in ME kicked it into overtime as I spent some really fun time BMX shopping with MY youngest child. Now the two of us are working up some MONEY MATTERS to complete the task of purchasing the green and yellow beauty (a little summer time MATH:) MAYBE.

I suppose if there was a MARKED MOMENT of sadness it would be the time I spent with MY own MOTHER on Saturday evening, the 2011 MEMPHIS floods has greatly effected her! Currently she is homeless living in a MOTEL in MILLINGTON while her MOBILE home is drowning beneath the waters of the flood. MY heart breaks as she grieves this loss.

MOTHER'S DAY-was a totally MAGNIFICENT day with MY MOST beloved surrounding ME! Two wonderful MEALS two MARVELOUS sons (MAKE that three with MIKE) a daughter in love MY dad and other MOTHER, MY MONKEYS and MY girls. A MANTLE of God's MERCY surrounding ME and a true MANIFESTION of HIS love toward ME!

It is time for the MOTHER in ME to take second seat to the teacher in me and get this MORNING started.
To you I say have a wonderful day MAZEL tov and God bless

MERCY ME the sun is shining and that MAKES ME MARVELOUSLY happy! Another MORNING Without sunshine would have done ME in!

To prove MY point... I was in a hurry earlier.... to get to MOTHER'S Day out to pick up MADDIE I jumped into the shower... realizing something wasn't right I adjusted the temperature and then adjusted the shower head huh something still doesn't feel right so I grabbed the bottle to MAKE sure I was using body wash and not hair conditioner to bath in.... oh NO something is seriously wrong here and then it occurred to ME... MY glasses were covered with soap MAKING it impossible to read the writing! well duh that MUST be what is wrong I was showering wearing MY glasses and it just didn't feel right. Truth prevails no MATTER how much silver is showing on top I am still very much a blond in the Head!

I am so looking forward to the MILLIONS of beautiful flowers that are sure to show themselves after all the April showers . Thinking about how MANY flowers will be sold over the next few days in honor of MOTHER'S Day. MEMORIES flood MY MIND. MADE ME think of MY gal, Rhonda who loved flowers with dirt and thought cut flowers to be rather wasteful. In honor of the MOTHER she became every Sunday for the rest of the MONTH of MAY I will MAKE an attempt to MANAGE MY MOMENTS of grief by planting another pot of flowers in the ground.This will be MY time of reflection...how blessed I am to have heard the sound of MAMA coming from the MOUTH of MY first born child. As I work in the dirt I will MARVEL at how blessed I continue to be as I hear the same word "MAMA" coming from the MOUTH'S of MY precious sons.

Here's to hoping they remember MY favorite candy is still M&M's (although I prefer peanut butter over peanuts these days) and MY favorite flower is still a MAGNOLIA and MY favorite MEAL is still MEXICAN (Although a good MARINATED steak will work too) other gift ideas.... oops did I really say that? I need a MANICURE really bad and I am still dreaming of MY own MOTORCYCLE.

With all the history making events of the past week including weddings, tornadoes, floods, and government affairs. I would be MAKING a MAJOR MISTAKE if I didn't declare that I am thankful that I know the MASTER of it all and grateful for the MANIFOLD blessings that he alone has set in MOTION in MY life!!!!
