Before I became a mother the first time I thought well I think this is going to be so fun to be a Mom,... how hard can it be??
When they were all babies I realized wow this is pretty hard I wish I had more hands...
“The mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requires the most intense love on the mother's side, yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother, and to become fully independent.”
As they grew I thought this is so fun I wish I had more time.
I am thankful for the Mothers in my life for giving me life..

For enriching my life My dear MIL who has been gone now over ten years was my best friend and taught me so much...
A mother's love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking” Helen Rice
Now as the Mom I am today to 4 adult Children.. I did not learn it all--- or have all the answers ---- it was not easy, it still is so fun, I didn't ever have enough hands or time--but my heart grew and grew and grew and grew bigger than I ever could have imagined. Through countless, constant prayers & the blessings of a loving father In heaven I have learned----
