Happy Mother's Day

I have done many things over the years I am proud of, but my two adult children remain my greatest accomplishment. What more can I say? God has blessed me immeasurably. Was it easy raising a daughter and a son? Did I transition through this period of life without the usual scrapes and bruises? Of course not. Would I do it again? Absolutely! My husband and I have six grandchildren now, and although they live far away, we are proud of our little brood. So enjoy your day, Moms, young and old! The rewards in the end are far greater than any sorrow or tribulation.

As an ancient philosopher once said: 

"Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life." (Sophocles)

  1. Happy Mother's Day. What a lovely tribute to your adult children. It's wonderful when moms recognize their greatest accomplishment is their children. I feel the same. Thank you for visiting my new blog. It feels a little less lonely now.

  2. Happy mother's day to you! :)

  3. What lucky children you have to have you as their mother! You're a wonderful example, Sharon, and I'm so privileged to know you! Happy Mother's Day a day late! It was great to see you on Friday and to catch up a bit.

  4. I think of good mothers as the sort of people whose giving has endless rewards - how we think, how we act, what we enjoy, what we love. I have found it to be so with my own wonderful mother, and I suspect your children, now grown, are experiencing the same.

    1. Wow, this so true, the relationship between Moms and their children. My experience mirrors yours, and bet your Mom is really proud of her girl. We are blessed!
