First, of all Happy Mother's Day to all Godmothers, Mothers, Teachers, Aunties, Sisters, Spiritual Guides, Nurturing Creatures, yes, even, stay at home Dads! Without you, society would simply collapse.
I haven't blogged in a while because I have been grading and reading placement essays, but I have a mom victory. I have been writing like a fiend, and I am well past 1/3 of the novel draft, The Harvest. I am posting the draft in a bit, and hope to read it on my way to my Mother's Day surprise destination, which will more than likely be a park where we will picnic, far, far away from Chicago (if I know my clan).
On a hilarious note, my seven year old wrote this in my homemade Mother's Day card: Dear Mom, I love you very much. Even though I get made at you deep down inside, I will never hate you. (Heart), Antonio. I am so proud of his writing abilities!
Here's to the unconditional love we give to our kids and artistic creations. #Resist
