Notes From A Hero

This was my day today:

Sleep in just a tiny bit because I stayed up last writing a speech.

Go to volunteer luncheon to receive an award in front of 400 people with my son.
Completely forget to follow my speech, which I made a point to make inspirational and meaningful, but instead, I pretended I was on my own 4-minute comedy tour and go the funny route, not the sentimental route.

Get called a hero multiple times (I'm not) and have a speaker tell me that I am one of the greatest mothers and I am an inspiration.

Take wonderful photo in the beautiful weather (is this really February??) with the parents.

Go home and put flowers in vase- I got three dozen today!!!

Fall asleep on the couch playing stupid-Facebook-Scrabble against Andrew, who was sitting next to me.

Wake up to have dinner and drive to the library.

Gave my 94 yr old friend Selma a ride home.

Took a warm bath and enjoyed a candle, a vase of roses and a good book.

I think this day is over. It was a beautiful day.

    awesome awesome awesome.
    is it weird that i think the best part is the falling asleep on the couch while you and your son communicate/game with each other via a social networking site while sitting next to each other?
    again: awesome.

  1. Congratulations on your well-deserved voluntaring award and all the beautiful flowers.
    Great photo of you and the parents.
