    here’s a good thing… 

    …but it starts in a sad thing.

    yesterday, i told my mom, “you know, i feel like i’ve let everyone down. i feel like there were expectations of me in the past that haven’t come to pass, and now people just see me as a loser.”

    her initial response? WHAT!!?!?!?!?!?

    nearly blew my ear drum.

    i explained further, talking about the dreams i had years ago and how many of them had yet to come to pass and those dreams weren’t just for me but for what i would be able to do for my family. i’m a big family person, and it matters to me that i can be there for them.

    my mom wouldn’t hear any of this. “no one thinks you’re a disappointment. you haven’t let anyone down. you are not a loser. you do more than anyone i know. hell, i think you do too damn much most of the time. just wait, nellie. just keep moving and going and doing because your dreams will still come true.”

    just those words over my phone warmed my sad, cold heart and made me believe maybe the dreams still have a chance of coming true.

    Day 2 of 30-Day Arm Challenge Completed… 

    …this is a very good thing.

    also got in a mile walk with my mom. proud of her. she just finished a 12-hour shift at the hospital, so i know she was tired, but we got the mile in at under 18.5 minutes.

    Sweet baby Jesus. Just got in from my walk with mi madre. Great walk. Went further, walked harder.

    Did give Madre the side eye when she said, “Hey, wanna run this strip of the road?” I stopped, put hands on hips, bent over, and howled in laughter before stopping and saying, “No.” I told her, however, that she should run, and she did.

    With her little self, her running is my power walk, so I just power walked right past her, leaving her saying, “With your tall ass self, your walk mows me over.”

    My tall ass self? I’m 5′ 5.5″. Yes, I claim that half proudly. LOL

    blessed and thankful for a mom that gets off her 12-hour shift, still in scrubs, and goes walking with me in the a.m.

    nap time 

    i don’t take naps often. for me, now, a nap equals bedtime. (chuckles) today, however, after hanging with mom in the a.m., i promptly went to my bedroom and pretty much did a running leap into bed, planted face in a pillow, and crashed. it was pretty much “bedtime”! But, it was delicious. Yay for extended nap time!

    spent morning with mom… talking politics, talking about prop 8 and doma, going for a nice, long walk, then having some coffee and chit-chatting. ❤

    i usually see good things MORE when they involve other people — i like seeing other people happy. when i saw these pics of earrings mi madre will be getting soon, they were just the umph i needed to smile today. thanking my most talented friend, pachet burson, for her jewelry magic!
