- I love God!! I am a travelling RN working in labor & delivery. I have an AWESOME son & daughter in law and a brand new grandson! They will be fabulous parents because THEY are outstanding. I love the Seattle Seahawks...my favorite player hands down is Richard Sherman for a number of reasons. I love to draw portraits and I am dabbling with mixed media painting...I suppose I'm an artist! I love photography, but I'm a novice & am constantly practicing as I make my way through God's wonderful creation.

Me & Mom at the Tulip Festival
There's someone you can ALWAYS count on to be there to cheer you on a day when you don't feel too awefully cheery.....MOM!!
My lovely Mom and I hopped in the car after church this beautiful morning and went on the hunt for the infamous "Skagit County Tulip Festival". I neglected to brush up on my photography skills, therefore I took several shots. Only a few of them are even worth showing, and not that the pix themselves are anything special, but the tulips sure were pretty! I'm not typically much of a "flower girl" but the fields were certainly impressive.
Personally, I don't have what you'd call a "green thumb" at all. If it takes any maintenance at all then it probably is not a plant that should try to live at my house. Inside OR outside.
Why did I blog today?
I needed to continue my countdown, regardless of how painful it is.
I must express my appreciation to Mom for helping me keep my mind busy today and for simply being there for me. She doesn't push me to discuss what's on my mind and heart. Her shoulder is there for me to cry on with no strings attached.
I sure love her for that.
I've absolutely needed it lately. I am certain that I've shed enough tears to drown one of our cats if not one of us! Not completely sure when they'll stop rolling
but rest assured that I'm being safe and soaking them up with tissues, tshirts & pillows or allowing them to flow down the drain with the rest of the crud I wash off in the shower!
Next goal: A 100% positive blog post for day 17!!
Thanks for the continued prayers!
