Mother's Day and Family Time #mothersday #family


Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and grandmoms  

and to all those who have been a guiding light to a child.


I don't usually share photos of my family. But I believe an exception can be made because   Mother's Day is this Sunday. 

My Clan

I have to admit this photo is 6 years old. This was before girlfriends, before leaving the nest for college, jobs, marriage (yes, my grandson will be married in June!), and before my granddaughter was a teen-ager. 

The picture makes me smile. It captures a wonderful time. So forgive me if I feel a bit sad that the kids are growing up. The little boy in front graduates from high school in 2 weeks and will be going off to college this fall. The little girl will be in high school next year. 

It is a bittersweet experience for me. I am a bit sad missing those good old days when the kids were little but looking ahead to future days filled with happiness and new adventures with them.

The years skim by too quickly, don't they? I wish I could have captured those days that are behind us and put them in a bottle like Jim Croce's song, Time in a Bottle.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day whether you are near or far from your loved ones.
Blowing kisses to you all.

My mother is gone, so outside of going to church, it won't be any different that day.
Kids do grow fast. I recently realized my nephew is almost forty and wondered how on earth that happened.

Memories and photos will help preserve those moments.
