Mom's the word...

Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
Psalm 127:3

Though my mother is not here to celebrate this day with...I do have three special moms in my life...and they happen to be the mothers of my precious grandchildren. Happy Mother's Day to you...Broni, Lisa and Heidi!

You are all wonderful moms...a job that is at times overwhelming, demanding and sometimes thankless. It is the most important responsibility you will ever have...that of nurturing, caring for and loving your children. It is also the most there anything else in this world that compares to the worshipful and loving gaze of a one-year-old?

Mothering is a job that seems like it will go on forever...but I know from experience...that it's over before you know it. We retain the title MOM forever...but the day-to-day responsibilities are one day gone. Make the most of these years...give your children your time and your what you know is best...and in the end you will have few regrets.

And one fine day...although you will still be will be promoted to Grammyhood. That is the best...a reward in itself...I know!



  1. Happy Mothers day to you...
    Another gorgoeus day out here and I'm thinking of you...
    Wonderful how you honored your daughters.
    How special..
    They loved the book- I presented it todaz toboth moms.

  2. Happy Mothers Day to you too, Judy. What a lovely tribute/message to the daughters in your life.

  3. Judy, Thank you for sharing photos of your beautiful daughters, and words that blessed my heart as I read down through them. I said a hearty "amen" to every sentence. How different it is looking at our lives through grandparenting eyes. You said it well dear friend. Happy Mother's Day to you!


    Wonderful tribute to your daughters-in laws Judy! I know how happy your children and grandchildren make you ...truly children are God's best gift!

  5. What a lovely post of blessing your 3 girls in their role as moms. Your family has a lineup of beauties! Enjoy today. Kathy

  6. How special that you can honor the mothers of your grandchildren today! And you're so right .. . time does go fast and being a Grammy is the best reward.
    I like you fancy signature!

  7. What a nice post, Judy! Your daughter and your daughters-in-love are all beautiful, talented moms.

    Thanks to your thoughtful comments, I'm zipping off now to send my daughter-in-law a little thank you for being such a good mom. (I can't believe how forgetful I am becoming!)

  8. Proud of your great day and tribute to your daughters. I did a painted mother's day card for my four daughters. My youngest daughter has been married 2 years and does not have children yet. I always send her a card too, since she is a social worker and has a mothering influence in many of her clients lives.

  9. Very well said, Judy and so true. I hope you all had a nice Mother's Day.
