On being a mother.....

It's the greatest blessing you will ever receive.
The most fulfilling job you will ever do.
The hardest thing you will ever undertake.
And the most rewarding accomplishment in your life.

~ me ~

I have been blessed five times over with our sons and
I wouldn't trade one day,
one sickness,
one fight,
one hug from sweet little arms,
one injury,
one load of laundry (or fifty),
one sweet handmade card,
one messy room,
one little kiss,
one dirty diaper,
one baby's breath on my cheek,
one trip to school,
for the opportunity
to be a mama.

Thank you Lord.....
I am so honored to be the mom of our precious boys.

And thank you to my wonderful mom
for showing me how to BE a mom,
I love you more than you'll ever know....

A Mother's Love

Author Unknown

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

Happy Mother's Day precious friends,
hugs and love,

Hi Dawn Sweetie...
Happy Mother's Day my precious friend. Oh how I love this photo of your 5 boys. They are all so handsome and I know you just rock their worlds. Growing up I just know they gave you a few trials along the way.

(Mine did and I only have 2 boys), and it is so fun to see the trials their boys are giving them. I always told them pay backs...

A beautiful write dear friend. Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing this evening. Have a glorious Mother's Day. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
