Happy Mothers Day

Sometimes we grow up without a biological mother but if you look around you will often see how many "mothers" you have had in your life. I noticed this when I was grown and married. Not only did I have a biological mother but I had a grandmother, two aunts and ladies at church who has also been mothers to me. In addition to all of them, I had my daddy. It was then that I wrote a poem to my daddy and had it cross stitched for him. It was titled, " Happy Mothers Day to my Daddy"

Tell all the mothers in your life how much you appreciate them today. 

Don't forget to hop over to my kids blog!

Find me on Facebook!

Ive decided to make some changes. Ive lost the need to write on this blog. Without telling everything that is going on in my family (too personal) I just cant think of things to write about here. However, you can find me on Facebook (thats how I keep up with the world!)

I am starting a new blog that is geared towards kids and their parents.  Anyone can read as Ill often update about my pets on there! (and the children's books Ive been working on) If you would like to read the new children's blog, you can find it HERE otherwise, Ill be on facebook (or email)

Thelma (you know who you are) please join the Facebook world!

I'm not sure how long Ill keep this blog going. Our life gets busier and busier these days This year is a BIG year with a lot happening in our family from 8th grade graduation, to high school graduation, to a son returning from Afghanistan, to meeting a new family member. I work hard and come home tired and just don't have anything else to write about these days. I'm proud of my family for so many reasons but I just don't feel the need to put it out there on the blog.

Life is simply tiring.
