To my darling children,
I know it is hard to comprehend why mom is excited to go away on a little trip without you guys at this age and that's okay, flattering really. Moms need to recharge too, wives too, well actually all people do, and it's hard for me to recharge in my own domain. Even when I'm "relaxing on the couch" I'm aware that there is a part of the crown molding that needs to be touched up, and goodness, when was the last time I dusted tv?
I am grateful for a husband, who sends me off on girls weekends knowing I will return better than I left. I return more patient, more centered, and more confident, and Mr. Boy, I hope you do the same for your darling wife. Love, Mom
I am grateful for the Ya Ya's who I spent the weekend with, but I am grateful for the lady friends I have made everywhere I have lived. As I drove home I thought about how lucky I am to have the Ya Ya's and a whole bunch of great friends.
