Two wings lift a person up from earthy concerns: simplicity and purity. Simplicity should be in intention, purity in feelings. Simplicity reaches out after God, purity catches hold and tastes. ~ Thomas A’Kempis

Happy Mothers Day


 To all my dear followers who are Mothers, I just wanted to pop by quick and say Happy Blessed Mothers Day.


I'm so thankful that even though my husband and I were very young when we had our first child, he was loved and welcomed into our hearts and homes. Since then followed another son and a wee daughter. Of course these children are all grown up now and have blessed us with beautiful grandchildren to love. Life is good.


I pray dear Mothers that your child or children showed you love and appreciation today. I know as Mothers we can be our hardest critics and think our children might be scarred for life for the times we lost patience or said a harsh word. No Mother is perfect all the time and most strive each day to do the best they can. 


All mothers want their children to do well in life, and to one day marry and have children. If your anything like me you've probably prayed a thousand prayers for your children. When you see them  marry and then in turn become good parents, you feel like maybe you passed on something good after all, even if at times you felt like you didn't always know what you were doing - smile.  


It's a blessing that this special day is still celebrated ! It's a blessing anytime a wee child is
loved and welcomed and protected when in the womb. Their is no place more sacred and it should always be a sanctuary for a developing child. When I'm out and about and I see Mothers speaking to their children in a loving way, it makes me so happy inside because I know those children will grow up well and have good self worth. 


It doesn't matter how humble your home is, but only how big your heart is, how loving your arms are, and how gentle your words are that they hear.  When I reflect on myself as a young mother, I sometimes think I could do a better job now, but that's only because I have grown and matured through being a mother and not the other way around. 


Our children are very dear to us and I consider it a great privilege to be called mother.  
It brings me enormous joy to watch our own daughter grow as a wife and mother and even be inspired by the selfless choices she continues to make and to see our daughters in law also grow to become beautiful mothers. I consider it a high calling and a very worthy work of Love to be a Mother.

Much love to you all ~ Linda xo

    1. No worries Amelia :) I just have the names of all the blogs I follow on my side bar and I can see when I pop on if someone has updated an written something as I don't get notified either. We had the little service at mums for Dad today. My husband did the eulogy. All the family was gathered around, just like he wanted. Their was laughter, hymns and a few tears and of course food. He would have loved it. I just let myself go with the flow, if I have a tearful day I just do. The next day I may feel better. Much love to you sweet friend. ~ Linda
