Despite everyone being away or busy I cherish this Mother’s Day like no other.
It started with me receiving an email from my Mother along with a phone call. Neither of us have not done much,So we didn’t have much to talk about. It was so nice to hear her voice. It seems like forever since I have been able to see her and my Pops for that matter.
They are out RV’ing right now. So, they are out of visiting reach. However, this is just a technicality. Due to the lockdown I have not been able to see them for over a month. It was nice to hear her voice today just the same.
Not long after that I received a call from my oldest son. I could tell he’d just woke up from the sound of his voice. I was so happy to hear from him as he has a busy life. His voice did my heart good. It was also nice that he was not in a hurry to get off the phone. He even asked me about potentially being able to make him a thing or two.
One thing he asked was if I had even thought about making a deck of cards. Of course this has never crossed my mind. He suggested I make them with my own style and designs(so sweet to me❣️).
I told him I would have to try and find something that was slick(something glossy might work) on both sides. I figured this was necessary so as that the cards could be dealt easily. His response was, “well, that would be cool if it works”.
Then he started talking about a sweat band I had mad my Pop(his Grandfather). He told me he saw one on Amazon that instead of being tied on was elastic. He sent me a copy of the Amazon post.
He was wondering if I could find a towel like material that was absorbent and thin enough that I could make some. I told him that I would give it a go and let him know if I was successful.
Unfortunately, my sewing machine is buried. The room it is in we had to put some furniture from another room so we could work on the other room easier. I have an idea in my head, hopefully I can make it work in reality(you know how that goes sometimes).
Shortly after talking about that my youngest son got on the phone and chatted with me for a bit. He let me know he was starting a new job on Monday. He was excited about it. He had been working at a place where he worked on big diesel machinery.
His new job was going to be 30minutes closer and he would have the ability to get some certifications. He was going to be working on Semi engines. He was glad he was going to get paid weekly.
The good thing was he was going to be making the same and then in 90 days he would get a raise. I was amazed at how far his skill had come when he was helping me with my Jeep. My oldest sone also is able to work on cars.
My youngest’s attention was divided as his long time girlfriend(who I adore)was there and I guess they were all going to have lunch with my ex’s wife’s Mother.
My oldest got back on the phone and told me he had sent me the post from Amazon and he guessed he had to go as they were griping in the other room….lol He told me he loved and missed me and we disconnected. All in all it was a great call(from both boys’), Mother’s Day or not.
I cannot tell you how much I hope I able to make At least one of these things for him. Not just that. I am so overjoyed in general. This may sound silly to others’, but he(they actually)has never asked me to make anything before. I can’t even express how touched I am.
I love my boys more than life itself. Unfortunately, my medical condition and the way a past doctor was treating me caused our relationship to take nose dive. It broke my heart like you can’t imagine.
About a year and a half ago I was forced to get all new doctor’s. After a few visits with the new doctors’ I still had major depression and anxiety and severe pain, but apparently I became less of a zombie.
My boys’ started to enjoy spending time with me and talking to me again. This felt like a dream come true. I still don’t get to talk or see them as much as I would like.They are so busy with their lives, I understand. I just cherish anything I can get.
I cannot thank these doctor’s enough for bringing my boys back to me. Although they can’t seem to give me but a minuscule amount of relief from anything else to help my quality of life.
I did not go into great detail about somethings mentioned as I have written previous posts regarding things in my life. I will list links to those posts below incase you are interested in reading those posts. I still have at least one to post, but I’m running a little behind.
