** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

SUNDAY CITAR:
~ MOTHER'S DAY EDITION ~




HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
To My Wonderful Mom
And all the other moms out there!


A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

********

Anyone who doesn't miss the past, never had a mother. ~ Gregory Nunn

********

Honor your Father and your Mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. ~ Exodus 20:12

********

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. ~ Honore de Balzac

********

My son, keep your father's commandment, and forsake not your mother's teaching. Bind them on your heart always; tie them around your neck. When you walk, they will lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk with you. ~ Proverbs 6:20-22

********

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

********

The most important thing a father can do for his children is love their mother. ~ Theodore M. Hesburgh

I love all your quotes, but this one especially, "Anyone who doesn't miss the past, never had a mother." ~ Gregory Nunn

I don't think our children truly appreciate their mother's until well after they have their own children.

We went to my MIL's church for mother's day, and the sermon talked about moms being kind, compassionate, loving. O.K. - that works - in perfect moments. However, a lot of time is spent in teaching moments that sometimes are uncomfortable. Moms have to be tough, draw the line in the dirt, say, "No" and suffer anger and attitude. Today I feel more frustrated at the holiday that celebrates the beautiful blooms in the garden, not the hard work, the weeding, the pruning, the transplanting, the nutrient supplements, the sweat, frustration, exhaustion, and, yes, anger, when something's not working right!

Blessings on you dear mother! I hope you day is full of blooms, compassion and gentleness!
