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 Wordsworth

This has been an exciting weekend for us! Sonshine had his First Communion on Saturday.
We've learned, once again, to watch what we tell the kids. Earlier this week Hubby told Sonshine that the reason he didn't take the wine at Communion is because he "breaks out in spots, like Charleston, Chicago, Los Angeles" (it's an old joke from AA). On our way to the dress rehearsal Sonshine keeps asking me "what color are the spots with those names that Daddy breaks out in?" Since I had NO IDEA what he was talking about I called Hubby to find out and he said "just tell him big red spots". Okay, question answered, no problem.
Saturday at the First Communion Mass, I'm right beside Sonshine to help him stay focused. As he's sitting back down beside me after taking the Host (and wine) Sonshine says to me, "Momma, I don't think I'm breaking out in big red spots!!". He then spends the rest of the Mass pulling his pant legs all the way up and feeling his belly and head to see if any big red spots have shown up yet. While I spent the rest of the Mass busting a gut trying not to laugh out loud!!
