warm day ahead ahh

So happy it's to be nearly 70f today :) Going out to garden and try make it look less like a wood out back and more like something resembling a garden.  All the children are better which is just wonderful. Nothing worse than the stress and worry of sick children, sleepless nights and endless laundry!

up all night

What started as my 1 yr old being sick yesterday has turned into a full on assault of sick from the 4 of the little darlings.  I slept with my 3 yr old, who finally stopped throwing up at 5am, only to be woken by the 1 yr old once again ill.. then the 7 yr old ran down the hall didn't make it to the bathroom, and the 6 yr old hasn't left the bathroom in over an hour.  It's going to be a long day!

My heart goes out to everyone affected by the devastating storms

Tornadoes are once again ripping apart this great country straight through the heart.  And my heart aches for those lost and for the families affected by this devastation.  The story of the baby girl found alive 10 miles from home next to the dead bodies of her family, just hurt so much I couldn't read the whole thing.  She died from her injuries over the weekend.  Terrible what Mother Nature can inflict on us.

One of my favorite bloggers wrote a book

I just wanted to really put a shout out there to everyone to turn you on to one of my fave blogs. Always leaves me feeling warm after reading which is a good thing on these cold days! She just had her book published, and it's a heart-wrenching but also lovingly wonderful tale of motherhood from her knowing eyes.  Her blog is a daily dose of beautiful photographs and sweet tales of what her clan have been up to.

"DisneyWorld is celebrating Leap Day today with a 24-hour opening-- 6 a.m. Feb. 29 through 6 a.m..
Called "One More Disney Day," Disney says it is the first time both Disneyland in California and the Magic Kingdom park in Florida will be open 24 hours straight."

A Heartwarming and wrenching story to start my comeback!

Everyone who knows me knows I love horses, and have done my entire life. So reading this brought the floodgates crashing down this morning.  Great job to the horse owner, how terrifying to have to go through that though.

"This was the terrifying moment a brave young mother battled to keep her beloved horse calm as sea water closed in on the animal after he became trapped in mud 'like quicksand'. Exhausted and mud-splattered, Nicole Graham clung to her trapped horse Astro for three hours keeping his head high in a race against the tide. The 78-stone show horse had sunk into quagmire-like mud and was facing the prospect of drowning as the water rose around them. Miss Graham had been out on an afternoon ride with her daughter along the coast near Geelong, south of Melbourne, when 18-year-old Astro suddenly sank into the mud. Before she could shout a warning, the smaller horse her daughter Paris was riding was also partially swallowed up by the mud. After dragging herself through the mire, Miss Graham helped her daughter and the other horse on to firmer ground. However, Astro was stuck fast and her efforts to pull him free only resulted in herself sinking deeper into the quagmire. As Paris ran to their car and phoned for help, Miss Graham stayed at her horse’s side. She courageously clung on to his neck, terrified that he would not be freed before the tide came in. After three 'terrifying' hours, rescuers managed to pull Astro and Miss Graham from the mud."
