Blessed beyond measure ~

As we approach Mother's Day
you just know, know and KNOW
that it moves my heart so!!!

Our precious boys truly are
our treasures here on this earth.
That is honestly how I feel...
Yes, I am their mama but these babies
are my sweet TREASURES!

I so LOVED being pregnant each and every time,
I was the goob at work that made everyone
feel my belly so they could feel my baby kicking!!!
And I loved those precious teeny, tiny newborn weeks...
and after a few babes, I realized how very fast
those weeks are gone.

With the last two boys,
I would simply weep in the middle of the night
when they would breastfeed just knowing how
fleeting the time would pass...

As I lay in the bed at night and say my prayers,
I thank the Lord for each and every one of our precious sons ~
I pray for their protection, for their health, happiness and prosperity.

I always keep telling myself,
you have been blessed with FIVE wonderful babies...
No matter what comes your way,
what stumbling block,
or any hard time...

this is my measure of greatness ~

I thank the Lord in HEAVEN above for our five boys...
I so hope that I have been the mother
that You would have wanted me to be ~
and I thank You dear Lord...
for entrusting them to me.

Wishing you a wonderful Friday my sweet friends!
hugs and love,

Oh Dawn, What a handsome family of young men you have raised! We have 4 boys, but I miscarried 4 times so I may have boys waiting for me in heaven. How fun! Hope your Mother's Day is delightful!! And our children are simply the greatest gifts aren't they?

Such handsome sons you have. You are so right....these are our treasures in this life!!! We have three sons and I pray the same things for them, and for their families. Being the mother of only sons has its own challenges for sure, but I am blessed to have been their mother and am so very proud of the men they have become. Just wish they would invite me on a trip or know some bonding time....ha. Don't think that will happen. Hoping to rent the movie "Guild trip" soon for a laugh or too. Hope your weekend is very special Dawn. Linda

Dear sweet friend,
I know your prayers, as I do ask the same for my daughter, and her babyes!
Being gifted with kids is the most wonderful blessing, and something that no other gift can be compared with!
I wish you a very happy mothers day precious Dawn.
Hugs and love,Dorthe

Here in the UK, we celebrated Mother's Day in March, but I am delighted to be able to read what you wrote today what was truly in my heart back then, but also each and every day as I give thanks eternally for my children and grandchildren. Wish I could put my thoughts into words as beautifully as you have here Dawn. Thank you for sharing them :0) Mo
