"A friend knows the song in your heart...
... and can sing it back to you when you've forgotten the words."

Not a great day in Lynn's Mommy world.
Been investigating and evaluating for awhile... DS, the third child does have ADD, and is starting on meds. It's not severe, and we know how to handle it. We've gone through this once before, and I have the help of a very supportive teacher, but it still makes me sad.
DD the middle child, has been coughing for a couple of weeks now. We live in Michigan and it is allergy season here, this has long been an issue for her, so I put the cough down to that, had her taking allergy meds and occasional hits on an inhaler per previous recommendations. But, this morning, she came downstairs and sounded like she had croup. So I called and got her an appt. for 1:45pm, This meant I had to send DH to volunteer at the school fun run passing out popsicles. We get to the doctor, the pulse/ox was 99/100 so I'm thinking may be I'm over reacting. Doctor is really personable... then she listens...
We leave with a script for prednisone, seravent and renewed albuterol. The kid had run the mile in under 9 minutes in gym today!! We also get the script for DS's meds.
Get home and DH is listening to the answering machine. He says, "I need to talk to you privately." When he says that, it is never good. We got a message from the parent of DD1's project partner. That mom got a letter from the teacher, the girls are "way behind" on the big project which is due on Monday. Long conversation with DD, long conversation with Friend's Mom... things may not be as bad as we thought, but it's going to be a long, busy weekend of typing for DD and her friend. May not be celebrating Mother's Day with Grandma. I am also wondering if I need to be mad at the teacher for not sending me a letter, and praying I don't find out DD hid it or something stupid. She should know better, I am an intense investigator. (Other mom and I already mad that it came today... not much we can do about it at this point.)
I am so not Mother of the Year!

"Promise me you'll always remember...
-You're braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think. "
(A. A. Milne)
Who can't stand to be reminded of a life lesson by Winnie the Pooh?

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act,
the rest is mere tenacity.
The fears are paper tigers.
You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life and the procedure, the process is its own reward."
Powerful and Spark appropriate.

I accepted a challenge, from my spark friend Diane, to post an inpirational quote today.
It got me to thinking. I had, before Easter, come accross a book at my sister's house (while babysitting when I really didn't want to), it was full of great quotes. Since, I had a handy notebook (suggested by my spark friend Annie) I wrote many down. Hadn't thought about it again until today.
My plan is to post one a day, at least until I go back to work, some will probably stand on their own, some days I may model after another Spark Friend, Janet, and add comments. thoughts etc of my own.
Here's Today's Quote...
"Where there is great love, there are always miracles."
I purchased a framed piece of art with this quote for my mom, the Christmas after she had a major surgery and almost died. It was great to see it in another forum.
Rejoice in your miracles.
There are so many miracles out there. The ones we know about, and those tiny pieces of grace that occur in our day to day lives that some people call luck. Accidents that are avoided that we never know about.These are not to be conconfused with the times when you pray so hard about something, and know for sure your prayers have been heard. Or when someone who is doomed to death, is saved, or healed.
Again I say, rejoice in your miracles.
