Happy Mother's Day

The stomach bug is slowly creeping into and out of our home.
We are hanging out here at home resting and recovering from a week of tummy issues.
While I am sad that we won't be able to stick with our original Mother's Day plans, I am happy that the four of us are together and happy. It is no fun to be sick, but I am thanking God that the stomach bug is all we are suffering from. There are so many mommies celebrating this Mother's Day weekend at the hospital, nursing sick children back to health. There are other women longing for the children they can't have.

I am very blessed and extremely thankful for this life
God has blessed me with vomit and all!

Thanks for the flowers family!
I love them.

Below are a few quotes I look at often.
They are a constant reminder of this wonderful job I have as a Mother!

*Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

*All mothers are working mothers.

*A mother understands what a child does not say.

*Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

I hope you & yours have a fabulous Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom and Gary's mom too.

I'm sorry we couldn't be with you today.
You will thank us, no one wants the stomach buggie!
I know that you choose health! teehee!
