Saturday. My kids are here. They’ll stay here until next Friday because the man went to Italy to see his parents. That means I’ll have to wake up early every morning next week to take them to school. And it’ll rain and snow. At least, that’s what the weather forecast says. I hope they are wrong.
As from today, we are officially in spring. It doesn’t look like it at all. It’s cold and cloudy and it rained at least half the night. I know it because I was awake. I can’t believe sleeping can be so hard. I know there are several things in my mind that worry me, like the driver’s license. I really have to study the rules soon. That’s what my instructor said. I wish I felt like doing that.

It’s past noon and I haven’t done much yet. I have a headache again and I need my glasses to read and write. That indicates I’m tired! But I’m still smiling, specially after reading that my sweet friend Mandy from healingbeyondsurvival.wordpress.com will be publishing her book soon!! Check this out!
CONGRATULATIONS Mandy!! And as I always say: “A promise is a debt”, so here I am paying my debt to you.

Back in October, Mandy called me cheerleader.

And that’s what Mandy wrote when I told her my mom was bringing pompons.

That’s me this morning after I saw Mandy’s post. Don’t be fooled by the tank top, it’s really cold here but I wanted a shirt matching the pompons. And I couldn’t resist the pony tails.


Dear Mandy:
You are one of the bravest persons I met here at WordPress. I admire you enormously and wish you all the happiness there is and not one single day without a smile.
I want to thank you for all the love and light you sent me during these past dark months. We are in spring now, WE DID IT!!
And you are my hero too!! ❤

    You look so young, this could be a high school photo. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen you smile so big. The pom poms did the trick.
    Have a great day.
