Mother's Day Thoughts

I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Mothers Day!
I was blessed first with a beautiful little girl! When I took her home I was so overwhelmed with love (and panic). How would I know what to do?? But we found our way. She is growing up; and has found her voice and strength. She is turning into the most amazing person...
And then my son came along, more overwhelming love, and much less panic. Lots of singing, music and laughter....And he each day he amazes me with his empathy and his talents...
Now they are entering the teen years - and as I am sure many of you know, as a parent I am entering unknown territory. Keeping them traveling in the right direction - making the right decisions - the path isn't always clear.
But the greatest guide is love. I am truly a lucky lady with a wonderful family. My children, my husband and I laugh together almost every day. Our home is filled with smiles and and tremendous love.
I smell breakfast cooking, and hear a lot of commotion in the kitchen; so I am logging off to enjoy my wonderful day. May yours be as special...

  1. Happy Mother's Day! I too was blessed to be able to have a boy & a girl. It's wonderful having one of each and interesting now that they are teens! xo

  2. Beautifully said Gina, I still have the terror of the teen years ahead of me, but for now my two little princesses are entertaining me daily!
    I had a super special day, thanks, and I hope your yummy breakfast was followed by a totally wonderful Mother's day!

  4. I have two teens and one in his 20s. I have to say the teen years have not been as bad as I had envisioned - after you get used to the extra facial hair, and greasy pimply skin on your sweet babies faces then you are fine. Well and adjust to some moodiness ... It is fun watching them grow up, though, and emerge into adulthood. I hope you enjoy your Mother's day with your sweeties.

  5. HI Gina!

    Yes, you are indeed so blessed!

    Wishing you a very Happy Mother's Day!
