I've never participated in Wordless Wednesday, because I'm not.
Wordless, that is.
My computer screensaver is the photo slide show, and my computer sits on a little desk in my kitchen (and it's always on), so we all enjoy seeing whatever pops up from the last 3 years of picture files on my computer. Kyle especially likes it and always says, "That's you, Mama!!!" or "Look--Manda!!" in the sweetest and most excited three-year-old voice that you can imagine.
I often feel like a tired and impatient Mommy, drained by these kids whom I love and with whom I DO enjoy sharing life. Yesterday I felt particularly tired and out-of-it, so seeing these two pictures of Happy Mommy pop up on the screen within a few minutes was a very sweet and blessed reminder.
