A Mother’s Day Letter for my Husband

Dear Husband, Since you have been gone the past 3 weeks and are going to be gone the next 3 weeks, essentially missing Mother’s Day altogether, I have a couple not so subtle hints as to what I would like for Mother’s Day. Since my previous post about Mother’s Day gifts didn’t pan out and most wouldn’t be possible anyway, I thought it would be easier if I were a little blunter as to what I would like for Mother’s Day.


Gardening to Help With Anxiety

I have always considered myself to have a black thumb. It always seemed like I couldn’t maintain a plant at all. They always seemed to die under my care. I don’t know if it was my enthusiasm to water them or if I gave them too much or not enough light, but it just never seemed to work outlet with me and my plants. But even knowing all this, I still wanted to start a vegetable garden. I wanted a little plot in my yard where I could grow things that we could eat and to know that I was eating something I cultivated and cared for lovingly for my family to enjoy.
