My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

So, next time I'm feeling unloved I'll just drop off the blogosphere without warning! Haha. Thanks to everyone for all the comments and emails asking if we're alright.

where did I go? OUTSIDE!! haha
It seems I can't blog and sew and garden and be Mightymom all at the same time...I wanna get some things done so I decided to go light on the blogging.

I'll fill you in on what all I've been doing in a day or two...or three, we'll see.
