Beautiful picture of the both of you! The quote is oh-so-true isn't it? Motherhood is a life changing event.
So much Love and Joy! Beautiful. Happy Mother's Day!
Beautiful photo, so joyful! There's a lot of truth in that quote.
So beautiful. Happy Mother's Day. : )
Thank you for sharing your joy with us!
I quite agree, but I am having a hard time convincing my sons that it is their time to celebrate their mother, not mine. I celebrate their grand-mother. Recently I was in the section of our pharmacy that sells cards and duly noted that the huge majority are designed for daughters.
Marc, my sons are the same. I don't love them any less, but am thankful for at least one daughter. :^)
A very sweet picture, but a more ominous quote. Happy Mother's Day!
A wonderful photo, Tess. I'll wear a big smile all day just after one view.
That face - pure joy, warms my heart. I so wanted to have a boy after my daughter was born, just to experience them both. I'm hoping someday she'll have one after a few girls :) Happy Mother's Day this weekend friend.PS - I'm tickled you like Maude and Lola.
Very true. And what a beautiful photo of you with one of your spring-offs, Tess. Have a very happy Mother's Day weekend.
Lovely, happy picture, Tess. Fine words from Agatha, too.
What a pretty young thing you were.... and are!
What I love about this photo is, of course, the contagious smile, but also the the joy that emanates from you just holding on to that squirming little body and from nuzzling his chubby little cheek! With my six chilldren spanning such a wid age spectrum, I KNOW how fast this time goes by. My oddest is 18, my youngest 3. The 3 year old gets hugged and squeezed a lot ... From all of us. My youngest daughter (8) kisses him SO much that he sometimes puts his arm and hands out when he sees her coming!
I had forgotten that it is Mothers' Day over your way - we had ours in last month. Whenever it may be, the sentiments are the same and wonderfully expressed in your quotation.
Should read my oldest, not oddest. LOL
Mums are a gift from above...I truly miss mine.
What a precious photo of you with your first-born. Happy Mother's Day!
Agree absolutely with those words. Lovely photo too.
A wonderful photo! Happy Mom's Day to you.
So beautifully done! Beautiful mother and child.
Margaret's little typo made for a funny comment!
Giggle. Margaret, you are too funny!
So beautiful and so true that I'm doing (alone) a standing ovation for you.
Love the photo and the emotion displayed. These are the times we remember. Happy Mother's Day!
Yes, a wonderful, beautiful, mothering photo. Such joy. Happy Mother's Day, Tess.
Early Happy Mother's Day! I hope it's a good one! I thought of you yesterday when I saw Johnny Depp on Oprah. He's still cute as ever! ; )
Lovely photo, Tess. Have a Happy Mother's Day.
It seems like just yesterday that we entered the motherhood club. What a magical place. The only better magic is when you have a grandchild! Happy Mother's day to you and yours. Beautiful photo and sentiments.
gorgeous, both of ye. Kansas City!! I lived in kc Missouri in 1969 and my son was born there.
Lovely photograph: the truth quotation shines out of you.
Keep your powder dry on Sunday,and thanks for sharing one of yourfamily memories with your peeps.Is your daughter the youngest ofyour brood? Loved that article onher you alerted us to. Three daughtersgave me quite a perspective onmotherhood, as grandchildren arrive.No sons, just bought stock in thefeminine napkin industry.
Suki, I miss Kansas City. It's a wonderful town, so full of the arts. Fun to think our sons were born there!
Glenn, here's the order of my children: son (31), daughter (28), son (24)
Have a very happy Mother's Day, Tess.
It dates all things . . . YES! It does make our lives "before" and "after."I just read the very poignant memoir called Slipstream, by Elizabeth Jane Howard, and she writes about being permanently guilt-stricken about her inability to bond with her newborn child.Sweet, sweet photograph. Sometimes, looking at pictures of my children when they were young makes me weep.
Best quote on motherhood. Ever.Hope you have a wonderful, happy Mother's Day at the Manor!
