Happy Mother's Day!

Well, here I am again and it has been months since I have made time to blog.  But, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to talk about what Motherhood has meant to me.  From my first Mother's Day back in 1992 to today my children have taught me so much about life and who I am.  They are my world.

The last couple of years have been very hard and the children and I have taken more than one curve ball but I still love being their Mother.  I have been so blessed by each and everyone of them as they have often had the tables turned on them and they had to take care of me.  I will forever be grateful for the strong, kind, intelligent and loving babies I have. 

My mind and heart are filled will memories that I pray I never forget, from first words to first steps to rocking sick babies and seeing them succeed in all they tried and then to watching them launch their adult lives.  Sometimes I wonder how I could be so lucky as to have children, and not just any children, but THESE children?

I hope that each of you whether a Mom or a Daughter or even a Father or Son take time today to really think about what your Mom or the Mother of your children really provided for you and know that she is your biggest fan and your greatest supporter.  God created Moms a special way and for a special purpose and those of us blessed enough to call ourselves Mother should cherish and pray thanksgiving everyday for that privilege.

Being a mother is surely one of God's greatest gifts, challenges, and rewards! I don't know who I'd be without my 4 'babies'.
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you and your family last night, and I hope we can get together again, maybe a visit to Rogers Creek Farm.
PS: thanks again for dinner.
All the best,
Janice
