Happy Mother's Day Video and #7 of BB

#7. M y favorite thing about me is that I am a mom. Simple and true. It is what I always wanted since I was a little girl. No high ambitions....little did I know that it really is the highest. My mom is gone 5 years and my MIL, too. It is so hard not to have them to go to. I still need my mom to run things by and make decisions, I only hope that she is thinking that I am doing okay. Funny, that I never thought Mother's Day was for me until there wasn't a mom for me to honor on that day! 
Every day, I try to slow time and it does not work. My kids and husband say, "I wish it was Friday." and I say "Don't rush my life!" I want to hold on to every day. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful, sweet and loving children-who love eachother above all. My prayers are for them to "stay safe, healthy and always happy." and to live, love and laugh.

So grab a tissue and watch this...
Happy Mother's Day to all of my friends who I meet here in blogland.

  1. Happy Mothers Day Nancy! Your children are beautiful and so is your yellow lab. My mother is gone 10 years now and I miss her just about every day. I still want to pick up the phone and talk to her and say thanks for all she did for me. Warm hugs, Esther

  3. Thank you - that was so beautiful. It reminds me of something I was trying to explain to my daughter-in-law - I think I'll just send the link.
    I always wanted to be a mother, too, but it was a hard road to getting there. I treasure every memory, and the big bonus......becoming a grandmother. Just wait..........it gets even better!

  5. Hello Nancy

    This is my first visit - I love your blog and the fact that you always wanted to be a Mum.
    It's the most special thing that we can be.

    I watched and listended to your video - isn't it beautiful and just so true.

    My 34 year old son is back home with us for a while and I have to stop my self from asking questions all the time. It's just that to me, he's so interesting and I love to know what he thinks. It's also hard being a mum.

    Our daughter lives in France so that's where our grandchildren are too.
    We live 12,000 miles away in New Zealand.

    I've joined your blog Nancy so I can follow all your news. Please come over and visit my very new blog - 4 weeks old. I would love you to follow me, I think we have a lot in common.

    Thanks so much for sharing.
