As for me, the greatest gift has been the chance to be a mother to my two boys. To see them grow into amazing men & fabulous fathers just MELTS my heart. There is nothing that makes me just "CAVE" as to see that sweet smile & have him say... "Hi Momma"! And then there is the GRANDS! To see the car pull up & that door open as they ROCKET out of the car. Running with arms flung wide. SWEET! TOTALLY SWEET!

Have a wonderful weekend. Please tell me your favorite thing about being a mother. I would love to know.

The chance to love absolutely unconditionally. A love so big that you feel like you can just burst. That's the best thing about being a Mother to me.
Happy Mother's day to you, sweetie.

That list is great! I'm saving that one. Hope your having a great day. I'd love to do lunch one day & go to Lonestar or something. I've got about a week until the PC prep comes crashing down on me. Call me tomorrow or something. Lisa

OMG, I can so relate to #7. Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about! Boy, did I hear that one!

My golden rule to live by was "Children are to be seen and not heard." That's probably why I'm an only child and I don't have any of my own! LOL

Love ya!
