Happy Mother's Day

Sometimes you get discouraged

Because I am so small

And always leave my fingerprints

On furniture and walls.

But every day I'm growing -

I'll be grown some day

And all those tiny handprints

Will surely fade away.

So here's a little handprint

Just so you can recall

Exactly how my fingers looked

When I was very small.

I am so thankful for my children, being a mom is the best gift on earth that I have been given.

Yes, motherhood is certainly the best gift of all. I've been working now for three whole weeks and I'm finally getting the hang of it, hallelujah! I've missed reading everyone's blogs, at least, I'm not as tired anymore. Hope you have a very Happy Mother's Day! I love the photos you posted.

Happy Mother's Day! I love being a Mom, too. Wanted to let you know I got all my big glass canisters at Wal-Mart. I first saw them on Barefoot Contessa, I love them! Madeline

I love motherhood too. Your children are just beautiful! I know that you had a very happy Mother's day. It is one of my favorite holidays. Thanks for following my blog. Oh and I love that shabby redo that you did on that huge piece of furniture! It is gorgeous!
