ok....this is our Zojirushi...it's a hot water dispenser. It's very convenient for
the "immediate" need of boiling hot water.
Why...ON EARTH...is this my blog post? And, what has this got to do with
honoring Mothers this week? Well...I'm gonna tell ya...
...in a minute or two...
First, think of a Mom as a Zojirushi... then, think of all the people she
cares for...stopping by regularly to fill their cups from her dispenser.
What happens if...the dispenser runs out of water?
or.....for whatever reason....

Maybe it is going for a drive, having lunch or sew day with a friend...
A quiet time for an hour or so to read, write, sew..
Whatever it is for YOU...put it on the list. It doesn't have to be a big
thing..just that it is something just for you! Do something on your list...
I know...it might be hard...but, try
...try to do something once a week.
This week...my goal was to do something for
Moms and in doing so...I did something to fill my
dispenser...I met some new people who share some of the
Thank YOU to all of you who have "visited me" this week and made my
