my mom left yesterday. it's always sad to say good bye, i like having her here. but she'll be back.
i have a stronger than usual crush on my boys. as much as i love them there are periods where they can be a challenge. i mean, i had three children in less than two years, so i've had my fair share of crying, sickness and not feeling good enough. i still have that occasionally, but somehow it seems like something has happened in the last few month.
maybe it's awareness, maybe it's just rythm, maybe it's how it is when they mature, grow older. not sure, but it feels good. i find myself watching them and my heart is melting. i know they are not perfect, but they are.
today is tu b'schwat, the new year celebration of the trees. isn't that just a perfect thing to celebrate? the children have planted flowers and trees with their kindergartens this week.
so here's to a happy and fruitful new year, to the trees and to us.
