Where the heart is



It’s the best job in the world … and the worst.


“Making the decision to have a child … it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” — Elizabeth Stone





It’s requires complete concentration … and it never, ever ends.


“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” — Sophia Loren


“A mother understands what a child does not say.” — Jewish Proverb


“She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn’t take them along.” — Margaret Culkin Banning





“You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around, and why his parents will always wave back.” — William D. Tammeus


“The woman is weak, but the mother is strong.” — Korean proverb


Happy Mother’s Day … and may God bless us, every one.

    How sweet! I’ve just enjoyed a yummy breakfast of blueberry chocolate scones (a little overdone!) and the kids are busy putting Sunday lunch in the oven. Ahhh….it’s those gifts from the heart that touch me more than anything a store offers!

    Wonderful! Happy Mother’s Day sister! TC didn’t make anything for me, but I have a feeling somehow in her 11 month old mind she knows it’s Mother’s day! All morning she’s only wanted me, she doesn’t want to go to Mr. Nashville! So funny! He keeps trying to give her a kiss and she sticks her tongue out at him and then cuddles under my chin. So thankful for my little one!
