Happy Mother's Day

Want to wish all you mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day. I hope it was a good day for all of you. :)

I spent the day with my darling daughter. Now that she's grown and married I don't get to see her nearly enough. Memories dance in my mind of when she was young and it's hard to think of her as all grown up now. And my boy is also married and now has two children of his own. Strange how time passes so quickly and we don't even know it. Seems as if they'll be young forever, then you wake up one day and they're graduating. Then before you know it they're married, out of the house, and having children of their own. And it makes us old, or at least we feel that way.

I remember a small hand in mine, bedtime stories, a smile, tears, monsters in the closet, the sound of little feet, the laughter, the questions, the giggles, eyes wide in awe at something new, first steps, bedtime denials, funny things they said, a hug, a kiss, a cherished moment caught on camera, watching them as they slept, worrying when they were hurt or ill, a tug on my pants, dancing and singing, school plays, and a constant stream of mom? mom? mom? mom? These are some of the things that I'll always remember and cherish. And then came the teenage years, but lets not spoil the moment. :D

And while I am not the best mother in the world, they are my world.<3 I hope they know that I love them and that they forgive me for my mistakes.


  1. Oh, Tracy. I stopped by your blog after you sent your supportive congratulations on Twitter (of all places. I'm new there, and it's kind of amazing that with 140 characters or less, we can make connections, you know?)

    This post is beautiful. As a mother to a boy -- I mean young man -- who's finishing his freshman year of high school, I can relate. It flies by, doesn't it? And it's all so precious.

    I see that you have so much on your plate with your ongoing medical challenges. Your attitude is so positive. We can go either way. We can let the bad stuff get us down, or we can use it to appreciate just how beautiful life is.

    Next Friday, I'm going in for a bilateral mastectomy. I'll be fine. It sounds like you've been through so much worse. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hugs to you and your family!


    1. Yes, time seems to have a way of slipping away from us. It's very deceptive, but as we get older we seem to notice the time flying by more and that long ago feeling of forever in our youth disappears.

      I want to thank you for visiting my blog and posting. So kind of you to take the time to read it. :) And many thanks for the hugs and prayers. *hug*

      I'm so sorry that you're going through that. Diseases and disorders are such cruel things, but we can survive them. And even defeat them. I can tell that you are strong and a survivor. You sound very brave. My disorder was small compared to cancer and I can't even imagine what you and your family are going through . Many hugs to you and prayers sent up. *Hugs*
