Fisrt off I would like to thank everyone for the uplifting comments on Just Once… It really meant a great deal to me.
I was feeling pretty down this past week. Husband was ill and I put him in quarantine in our bedroom so the rest of us wouldn’t get sick. Ian and Imani kept asking for him. They were not used to him being holed up where they couldn’t interact with him. I just couldn’t risk everyone getting sick at the same time.
Friday I picked up Kierra for the weekend. That’s right Kierra was over until Sunday evening. I couldn’t believe it but it happened!
Saturday I worked most of the day. My grandmother kept the kids for us and Kierra went to a birthday party.
Sunday morning I cried and cried. Not because I was upset about my situation. I was crying because for once everything was okay. Husband had a long conversation about everyday being Mother’s Day. He told me over and over how much I was loved. How he was so happy that I was his wife and mother to all of his children. He told me that I had a special heart. That I love and take care of children that I do not have any obligation to take care of. He expressed how he falls in love with me over and over again because of who I am. He told me to enjoy my day and not to worry about him. He would take care of himself. So you see why I cried so much?
The kids and I got dressed and took off for the mall. We ate lunch at Houlihan’s. Then we stopped at my brother’s for awhile. When we came home I checked on Husbandand made sure he was alright.
Since Husband was sick he didn’t get to take the kids to get me anything for Mother’s Day. Little did I know, he gave Kierra money to buy cards from the three of them and if I found anything that I liked to buy that, too. Shortly after we arrived home they all presented me with cards that they picked out themselves, without any help from Husband. They were so beautiful. Especially the one from Kierra. I started crying all over again!
Aside from Husband being sick my Mother’s Day was great! No worries, no drama, no sadness…For Once!
