Today I am thankful for my mom. She is here visiting (an extra "bonus" visit as she normally comes in November and May) and it's been so nice. The kids are extremely happy to have Grammie here, and I am grateful for all of her help. She is doing all of our dishes and laundry and getting the kids in bed each night.... leaving me to my couch and a book. Bliss! I love my mom, and I love that she is my friend as well as my mom!
