Motherhood its a wonderful thing...

*My Mom*

I had the best mom, warm cookies, big hugs and smiles, every day when I would come home from school that is what was waiting for me. She loved her family so much and gave all that she had to her family. I miss her smile, her laugh, her advice, her accepting of me for who I am and her ability to love me in spite of it … Mothers come in many different shapes and sizes. I truly believe that mothers never sleep. Once you have children, part of your brain stays awake listing for cries, for teenagers to come home from being with friends. I have to admit when I have my grandchildren over for a sleep over I get up just to watch them sleep.

My three daughters Stephanie, Shannon and Brittney, you are the best women and examples of mothers that any mom can ask for. You give your all, you love with your whole heart and you teach through example. I know Stephanie you are not a mommy yet but you have the skills to be a great mom and you will one day. I love you all so much.

Have a Happy Mothers Day!

Home Sick

I am at my house, sitting on couch, and I am home sick... Home sick for what, I have no idea. Sometimes I really just get this way. I hope it is my age, I mean lots of things are due to age, having to get up in the middle of the night to pee.. having you knees hurt going up stairs, your eye lashes not looking good anymore, your hair being limp, so yes I am thinking that over whelming home sickness is a age thing.

I have great kids that love me, wonderful grand kids, and I can find something to smile about every day if I look. So I will let myself be home sick tonight, then I will put on my big girl panties and deal with what life gives me.

Cancer Sucks

I can't say it any plainer than that! It just sucks! Life sometimes well most of the times gives us challenges that we do not want, Cancer, Loneliness, Heartache, and other little stumbling blocks that are to personal to say. but I can tell you from my heart, that Family is the key, of climbing our stumbling blocks in life. they lift us up they allow us to cry or laugh, and they bring a calm to our world with out having to say anything at all. Just knowing you have them, is really all that is needed.

With out going into much about my youngest brothers health right know, he has cancer and it is at a stage 3-4 and he is sick, he is a father of two great kids, has a wife that loves him with all that she is. He in turn is going to fight like hell to be a dad and husband for his FAMILY hewill not give up. He has more drive to win than anyone I know. With Prayer, Faith , Love and Hope he is going to be just fine climbing his stumbling block.

I am grateful to have the family and friends that I do. They have thrown me a rope to get over my blocks more times than not. I LOVE YOU...
