Straight A Students

My son is doing great in school. He is not as active as his sister with extra curricular activities but he is a straight A student. He cried yesterday because he handed me his report card and his Math grade have declined from 100% to 95%. I told him that he still have to recuperate from that grade. He said he doesn't understand why his grade have lowered down since he is really good in Math. I explained to him that he missed one question during their recent test which affected his grade.
I am  grateful that my children are really serious with their studies.

Mother's Day and Graduation

 Although I have mentioned in my previous posts that I have encountered some  setback financially, still I have a lot to be thankful for this year.   The good outweighed the bad which is great!  My youngest sister whom my husband and I sent to college is finally graduating.  Her graduation will be this Saturday, April 12.  My siblings who lives   far from our province will be  coming home to witness  our sister's graduation.  I  just wish that I could be there to celebrate this moment with them.
It's been  5 years since I last saw my mother and I miss her so much.  I am so thankful that my husband has a huge heart.  He is always willing to  help my family especially my mother.  We support her financially because  we are the only one that could  really help her.  I am so grateful that I  am blessed with a very supportive, kind, and loving husband.  This Mother's day, I want to  do something especial for my mother who sacrificed  a lot just to raise 9  kids.  She could have easily left when  life was so tough but she didn't.  She stuck by us and  raised us the best she could.  I am what I am today because of my parents, especially my Mom.
I am a mom of two and I know how it special it feels when you kids hand you flowers.  I remember when we were still in Korea, my kids gave me a  bouquet.  Now that they are bigger, they make personalized gifts that I treasure so much!
Motherhood is such a blessing.  Not all women get to enjoy it and I am one of the lucky ones who  enjoy its bliss to the fullest!

It's been weeks since I fell when our dog pulled the leash in my hand while I was not paying attention. My knees are still bruised but doesn't hurt anymore.
What bothers me now is my left hand which took all  the weight of my body when I fell and  was  badly hurt.  I am not sure if  a bone is broken  or what that causes it to hurt so bad.  I can't put weight on it because if I do, it hurts like a dickens.  
Do you see the swollen part?  That's what hurts the most.  Hubby encouraged me to go to the doctor so we can have it Xrayed but I don't really  want to do that.  It will heal up in time.
