Happy Mother’s Day!

One of my favorite photos of me and the kids, circa 2007

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there!

I so enjoy sharing my journey with you and glad that you visit from time to time to see what’s up in my world.

As you know, I deal with most of my parenting mishaps with humor and often poke fun at myself and my inadequacies. 

Being a mom is hard, ya’ll.

BUT – it’s so rewarding, too. And sometimes I set humor aside and soak in the glory of a moment when I did something right.

Or when a moment arises and takes my breath away.

I love expressing myself through art and enjoy scrap booking. I was looking at one of my old scrapbooks recently and stopped at this page I made long ago when Jackson was a wee one.

Don’t you agree that watching your child sleep peacefully is just about the greatest thing in the world?

You can’t really see, but the song I included on the page is “Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)” by The Dixie Chicks.

Dragon tales and the “water is wide”
Pirate’s sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer’s all tuckered out
Superman’s in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears “Amen,” wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

Relish these moments, moms. And know that you are wonderful!
