Mother Love

via Shell Designs

It's true.  Mother means love.  It does.  
Some don't realise that, I know. I have not always shown it myself.  
And today, I feel so unworthy of being my sweet sons' mother.  
But beyond my shortcomings are blessings that only God can give.  
He entrusted these souls into my care and I will not let Him down, by keeping the faith.

‎"Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you."

~Isaiah 49:15

And everyday since I have become a mother, I have marvelled at what a job my Mother did.  
I never did appreciate it until now.

Oh and what did we do today?  Well, it all began Friday with a surprise date with Rick without our boys.  
Then flowers (I love love love chrysanthemums for Mother's Day, I think its a lovely lovely lovely tradition!- but please, they must be white)
On Saturday I met my step-grandson.  And held him.  And fell in love.  Possibly ovulated (I have no control over these things!)

And despite waking up to Dean's gorgeous 2 year old nappied bottom on my face and a wriggly snotty 3.5 year old Liam kicking around in the bed at 4.30 am (geez looweez!), I have had a marvellous day.

Rick took care of the kids, then made me brekky, then took us out.

When we came home, they fell asleep and I went shopping here (bargains!)

Dinner is thawing out on the sink but I suspect takeaway could still be an option.

I hope you have celebrated motherhood in style today.  I hope that today did not bring you mourning. 

Motherhood is such a blessing for me.  My biggest challenge in life yet, and I suspect, it will never be topped.


  1. Happy mothers day lovely girl!

  2. I don't think we ever appreciate the true extend of our mothers until we become mothers ourselves :)
    Nice to see that you made a weekend of it, happy Mother's Day Fi.

  3. Hello Fiona,
    Sorry I have been off the radar, time to sit down and read blogs seems to have slipped down the list of priorities over the last few months.
    I love the quotes you found. I hope that your Mothers Day tea was lovely whether is was the thawed out or take away version!
