Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Ones, I want to wish you all a wonderful blessed Mother's Day. If you're able to be with your mother - tell her you love and, give her a big hug and thank her for all she's done for you. If you no longer have your mother with you in this life, I pray your heart will be filled with sweet loving memories of her.

I'm very blessed to still have my little mother with me. On June 21st, she will be 88 years young! I thank God for her and for the fact she and my daddy raised me in a Christian home and taught me to love God. Our roles have reversed a bit now and I'm more like her mother! :) I have no brothers or sisters so I'm the best and worst kid she ever had! :) I just love that! :) I do hope if God allows me to live to the age of 88 I'll have no more wrinkles than she does! :)

Happy Mother's Day!!



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

In My Daughter's Eyes

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

  31. I know you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your sweet mama. We celebrated with my dear, little eighty-eight-year-old mother. It was the nicest day we could have imagined. I will be sharing all about it later today on my blog. If you read my tribute to my dear, little mother that I shared yesterday I'm sure you can identify. I, too, was raised to know and love Jesus and my dear mother is the reason I'm who I am today. We are blessed!
