Happy Mother's Day!

Well it's been a very long time since I have blogged. My computer had viruses and it was very sick. The computer doctor did fix it thank the Lord. So many unhappy things have happened to me lately but I will not go into it. It is Mothers day soon and it is time to celebrate a wonderful gift God has given us, Motherhood!

I have 2 wonderful children, a 16 year old daughter and a 8 year old son. They are truly a blessing to me. Now I have to tell you my daugther is 16 going on 25. She thinks that she can move out now and still go to school, hold a job and head off to college. Is anyone heeheeing yet? We know as mothers that it is wayyyyyyyy to soon for her to do that. She is putting the cart before the horse so to speak and she just isn't ready. Now convincing her is another story. It doesn't matter because she is under age and we won't sign for an apartment for her. NO WAY, NO HOW!!!!

My son still holds that sweet inocence and wonder. I love when he comes home and runs to tell me how his day went. Sometimes I forget that this is very important to him and am busy. That is a big no, no for me and will try harder not to put stuff in front of him. My favorite saying of his is Mom, Mom, you know ............ then he proceeds to tell me what wonderful thing he has discovered or learned. Can't I bottle that????? I love that so much, that sweetness.

I know that many of you have similar stories to tell, many are happy some are sad, but God is with us and has given us these wonderful treasures. So I say to you treasure them, hold them, love them, then let them go......when they are really ready. Happy Mother's Day!

Your children are beautiful! Yep, 16 goin' on 25 sounds about right for any teen that age. Wouldn't it be great if you could lock them in their room until they hit 35?!
Happy Mother's Day sweetness! Enjoy your day. :> )
