The History of Mother's Day

I love looking up the origin and history of our current Hallmark-esque holidays. Since today is Mother’s Day, it was time to do some googling.

The first of the Mother’s Day celebrations can be traced back to Ancient Greece and festivals honoring Rhea, the mother of the Gods (most notably, Zeus). As part of the assimilation of Christianity, the

holiday was then rebranded as a day to honor Mary. It eventually

morphed into a day to honor all of…

lazy sunday

I am taking a quick break from studing!!! I finally got around to completing my matric. I was such a fool not to finish it years ago, I so totally regret that part of my life, but as they say "It's never to late"
Now that all the kids are at school I need something to do with my life, I'm hoping to study my BA and then go into teaching grade 1's.

Made an apple tart today with Raeesa's help, did not know how easy it was to do, and it tasted quiet yummy too!!

How To Be A Mean Mother

A mean mother never allows candy or sweets to take the place of a well-balanced meal.

A mean mother insists on knowing where her children are at all times, who their friends are and what they do. A mean mother breaks the Child Labor Law by making her children work - washing dishes, making beds, learning to cook and doing other cruel and unpleasant chores.

A mean mother makes life miserable for her offspring by insisting that…

Blah, Blah...Blah!

And when you pray do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words, Matthew 6:7...but

the theatrical production is unnecessary and completely absurd! You

don't have to keep speaking, to be heard. Just find a quiet place and

abide in His grace...there is only so much hot air a God-Man can

take...simplify it for God's sake. Just ask for what you… Continue

The Meat of Life

Today my husband took our oldest son to Chuck E. Cheese so I could have some time to write and catch up on a lot of things. Left with just our 9-month old, I set myself up for an afternoon of monumental success. Armed with a fresh pot of coffee, a fully charged laptop and a sleeping baby, I settled down in the living room and got to work. And in typical me fashion, I didn’t do anything for about 3 hours.

Instead, I got lost in a library rental of “Sex and the City: The Movie”.…

Favorite Mom Moments

In honor of Mother's Day I'd like to list my top mommy-moments (so far):

1. The birth of both my kids.....incredibly different since one was full term and one was at 27 weeks...but they both rank right up there as a couple of the most beautiful moments in my life.

2. Savannah's first smile

3. Tucker's first round of stitches...and then second round 10 days later!

4. The fact that Tucker (4yo) still wants to "snuggle up" first thing in the morning

5.… Continue

Nashville Flood Awareness Giveaway

I’m overwhelmed with the flooding in Nashville. It doesn’t seem to me

that there is enough coverage about it. It took days for the story to go

national and then it only got it's "15 minutes of fame". Not days as it

should have. My local news station only touched on it for 5 minutes -

for two days. Twenty Tennesseans lost their lives, and many people lost

their homes, cars, pets, and invaluable possessions.

I realize that it is not as large to scale as many… Continue

Mother's Day is for Moms

Mother's Day is poignant for most of us. We all had a mom and we are moms. Hopefully, our moms were good moms though I do know from drying the tears of many women that not every woman had the mother she needed. And for that, my mothers, I'm sorry, because it’s a pain that stays a long time.

My mother was a good mother but she made mistakes. As a bossy first born I was quick to point them out whenever the mood fit me.…
