Last week I posted something every day about mothers. Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I didn’t post a word. I basked in the love of my family, even though we weren’t all together, I know that I was in their thoughts as much as they were in mine. The above cartoon speaks volumes about motherhood. I still do this if someone is sitting in the front seat of the car with me – no matter how old they are or whether they are part of my family or not. It’s like one of those mother things that’s emblazoned on our hearts. Another thing is making sure they have their lunches packed for school. I still have nightmares about that, and my kids haven’t carried a lunch to school for more than 40 years.

Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts God has ever given me – besides the promise of eternal life and a wonderful spouse. As we look past all the gifts, flowers, beautiful cards and chocolates, there is so much more to this special day. We set one day aside for the benefit of moms when they should be celebrated every day. The same is true of fathers. Showing our love is so much more that the gifts. It is thrilling to know that you have made an impact on your child’s life, especially when you have been so impacted by theirs. So, Happy Mother’s Year to all you moms out there. May God continue to walk with you on this journey and give you strength, fortitude, patience and perseverance, because it’s worth it!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Thank you, Kathy (aka, “MOM”!)! I appreciate all your words about motherhood (and fatherhood). Being a Mom was my greatest success. When things around me fell apart, including relationships, the bond with my children (and their Dad has been wonderful and remarried for 20 years) remained. I’m so proud to be a Mom and now, Grandma. I’m so proud of my Mom and the legacy she has left, but do worry about her at times as she does not like asking for help. I thought of you yesterday morning when I got up to do my Bible Study and prepare to visit she and Dad. Life is really about the relationships–and being able to love after giving life to a precious baby is indeed a gift as you say! God bless you! I love you!

      Dear adopted daughter,thanks for you encouraging words. Your parents must be real winners because I see their influence. I am looking forward to meeting you face to face some day so we can share our thoughts. We may have to wait until heaven, but if that I am sure. Love you sweet Karla.
