That's what my husband said to me last night. I had just told him I was really unhappy and felt like I was being punished for 15 years of selfish decisions. He saw it differently. This is what he had to say:
We have two incredible children. The older is brilliant and funny and incredibly hard to lead. He lives life with complete emotion and isn't easily swayed to do what he knows is wrong. The younger brought to earth the joy of heaven and a smile that can brighten even the… Continue

Today I read the story of a mother. Continue
An amazing story. An example for all. I think it's worth, we who are parents, look for your posts and learn a little with this mother.
This is the address of her blog:…

This is from my friend Patrice Moerman who is part of the MAMAPALOOZA Festival in Washington DC. I think so many of us struggle to be 'Good Moms', but sometimes it's hard to combine our passion with our mothering. The MAMABLOGGER365 series examines these issues and attempts to answer the question(s) 'What is a mother' and what are the issues mothers face'. All while raising awareness for the brand new 'Museum Of Motherhood'. -- Would love your input, help, participation and friendship.… Continue

Strong emotional bonds between mothers and infants increase children’s willingness to explore the world—an effect that has been observed across the animal kingdom, in people, monkeys and even spiders. The more secure we are in our attachment to Mom, the more likely we are to try new things and take risks. Now researchers are discovering that this… Continue

So I picked up one of those signs the other day - you know, the ones have the catchy sayings and are all the rage? Yea, well - mine says "Be a joyful mother of children".
Now I don't know who came up with that but I thought it genius. It HAD to have been a mother who had a ton of kids, no help to take care of them, no sleep, a messy house, no shower and - well - a mother. She must have needed to be reminded that children are special, that motherhood is a privilege and that at some… Continue

I found this site today and thought that not only would I participate, but I'd pass this on to all of my readers too! There is a group called Kaufda, based out
of Germany, who is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation, to plant
one tree for every blog that does the following:
- Write a blog post about the initiative and display the button on your…

How many times as a mother do you not feel like doing something that your kids would like you to do? There have been times that my kids will ask me to play a game, go swimming or hang and watch TV with them but I say “no” either because I’m too tired, too busy or too selfish with my time.
More and more I’m being internally prompted to stop, listen to what my kids are asking me to do with them and just act in a way that is opposite of how I feel. As I take that step forward and begin… Continue

Dedicated to my oldest son, Brandon
We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.
I knew… Continue

What can I say about the most wonderful woman on this planet. Other than I am so VERY grateful that she is mine. She will be turning 75 this September, and whats so funny is that its taken so much time to see her as anything but what I remember her always being. Its been a tough 4 years, but the progression continues. One more time, God shows me that he won't give me anything I can't handle. She has lived a pretty healthy life so I haven't had the experience of taking care of her. But she has… Continue

.....sometimes I don't recognise the 'alien' who has taken over my son JK’s body & walks out of his room in the mornings! One minute he was a charming, sweet, communicative, HELPFUL little boy, who worshipped & adored his mommy (sigh) & then one day....well, one day, I think aliens descended, abducted him, gave him a brain & hormone implant & sent ‘something’ back to me!
One thing that has made a huge difference to his mood… Continue
