I've fallen out of the discipline of blogging but I longed to post tonight. I want to thank the Lord for my wonderful son, Forrest, and express what it means to me to be celebrating Mother's Day this weekend.

I have a wonderful and talented son who really loves me. I think back to those days when he'd search through his toy box for just the right amount of toys to take into the bathtub with him. Or the times when he'd want me to "throw" him on the bed and pretend I was an evil witch making stew out of him. He was such a fun child to be around and his smiles continue to light my life.

Son, you changed my world 17 years ago and I love you. What a blessing it is to be among women who will be honored this Sunday. Lord, you bless me every day with a terrific son.

Awwww...that's so sweet - and he's so cute!!

Got me thinking back to my kids younger days...precious.

My tender hearted 10 year old son made me dinner in bed - so touching - I'll try and blog about it soon.

He is a handsome young man! I am happy that he makes you proud.

Speaking of sons making us proud, Kev and I finally finished Part 8. The saga continues!

Happy Mother's Day - very late!

This made me cry - there is such a beauty to this post. Your handsome son looks like one sweetheart! Doesn't the time go by fast - and every moment is a seed to be planted and then seeing them as such wonderful beginning to bloom adults is such joy.

I know it isn't Mother's Day, but stopped by out of the blue. I share the same feelings and sentiments about my sons (and daughter). Time races by so quickly. Your son is truly blessed to have you for a mother. WE are truly blessed to have our children.

Thanks for stopping by today. I check up on your every few days - you must be very busy, or very distracted - hope it's good, whatever it is!

Thanks for the compliment on my new look - it's thanks to my very techno-savvy daughter, Kristen. Please pray for her - times are a bit rough for her right now.

Have a wonderful Sabbath! Blessings.
