Mother's Day

I wish a very Happy Mother's Day to all moms and dads as well who care for and are or have been rearing their families. This includes foster parents, and to those pet parents who make such a difference in the lives entrusted to their care.  Without you, their innocent lives would be so different.

I am, as I always am, so grateful for the overwhelming (I mean that word fully) privilege of being a mom.  There IS no greater privilege.  I was allowed to have three sons who have given my life meaning and responsibility that I otherwise would not have had.  And most of all, the privilege I spoke of.

The gift of each son was more than any other treasure available here on this earth could ever equal.  This gift is not surpassable.

And Happy Mother's Day to the fathers who have reared their child themselves.

 As a mom who has had that honor, I know what love and dedication that takes.  Blessings to each and all today.

    Sis Katie,

  7. Dearest Carole,
    Got way behind in reading blogs again due to a sprained ankle. Got up on Wednesday morning early last week, from having night cramps. Jumped out of bed and sprained my ankle... Had no idea it would cause me this pain later and a swollen ankle. Did even bike 16 km with it on Wednesday afternoon as I had no symptoms yet. Yesterday I thought it was getting better, so again I biked and today it is more swollen. Ah, patience is so very hard!!!
    Glad to read you warm post about Mother's Day here.
    Yes, being a stepmom, a foster mom or a fur baby mom, it all counts.
    Sadly only the foster daughter and fur babies do appreciate all the effort. But one day they will meet with their Creator and he will work things out. I've let go; did all I could do and that's it.

  8. Hi Sis!
    There day overall,it's just been amazing! Belly dancing is a lot more fun than going to a gym because I'm able to express myself through my movements. and that makes me happier. And more RAINS Days was that OK with me!
    Sis,Katie and Victoria
