Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

“Happy Mother’s Day” means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things


We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.

But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love

My “Baby” is 18!

My dear, sweet Audrey,

I still remember when you were just a few weeks old like it was yesterday. I wanted you so much, we both did. Mommy and Daddy both cried the minute we saw you. So beautiful and strong even then! Men and women alike would come up anywhere we were and tell me and your daddy how beautiful you were! Of course we agreed!

They grow up too fast“, they said. Of course, I knew this was true but didn’t really KNOW exactly how fast the time would disappear.

And, then, somehow, as if by magic, the time really did disappear.

Gone are the days when

you first crawled,

you first climbed…. (Right out of your baby bed at 6mths, out of the playpen, onto the kitchen tableup the fireplace bricks, up and into the entertainment center all before you could walk. Climbing up Granny and Grandpa’s refrigerator)

you pulled yourself up,

took your first step

or said your first words;

our first day of our home school journey

your first adventure away from home

and so many other milestone moments in your life.

I have so many thing i think i want to say. However, at 18, I know you don’t really want to listen to me. But here a few words anyway!

Love yourself and don’t allow anyone to make you feel less of a person through their words or actions. You, and you alone, are in control of your emotions and well-being. By allowing someone else to taint your self-worth, you give them power over you.

Don’t be in a hurry to grow up. You are now officially an adult, that is nothing but a number. Being an adult is more than just a number it means being responsible. Responsible with every part of your life. There is plenty of time to move out and live on your own. Find a job, go to school! What ever you decide.

The next few years should be spent discovering who you are as a person, learning from the mistakes of the adults around you. There are many of us who came before you that have made plenty of mistakes, me included. Don’t make the same ones just because you want to be treated as an adult.

Think for your future not just for the now. The mistakes you make now may haunt you your whole life. 

Ask for advice, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Asking for help is NOT a sign of weakness…instead, it shows your maturity that you know the depth of your limitations.

Above all else, remember you are loved. We do not want to see you fail, fall or get hurt. Your family is forever.

Follow your dreams. Never give up! Ever!

I’m filled with such joy, happiness and pride, but it also bittersweet! So I’m also filled with sadness that this journey with my young child  has ended, and we’re starting a new one together both now adult.

I love you so much!

Momma

I have so many blessings that I’m thankful for. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for me. Do you know Him? I’m also so very thankful for my wonderful husband Rudy, my amazing daughter Audrey, our pets, my Mom & Dad, Mitzi & Mark, Tony & Bridget, all of my nieces and nephews and my great-nieces and nephews. My aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, online friends, blogging friends, a roof over my head, food on my tablend my list could go on and on!

How about you?

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to the best mom In the world!

Of course you would expect a daughter to say that, but my Mom (and Dad too) has been called “Mom” (and “Dad”) by sooo many more kids than their own three children!

So Mom, I hope you have a wonderful birthday! I love you soo much!

My Mom, Blondell!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

 

 

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

I love you mom & dad

 

Today is my Mom and Dad’s 57 Anniversary! Of course I think they are the very best! But, it’s true, growing up all my friends and the friends of my sister and brother all loved to be at our house and called our parent’s “Mom & Dad”! All of my niece’s and my nephew’s friends call them ” Granny & Grandpa “!

So I don’t think all those people could be wrong ;)!
