A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Happy Mother's Day to my very wonderful mom....you're the best !

I had to have a Mom before I can be a mom...

Best thing that ever happened to me was becoming a mom.

Making the decision to have a child is momentous
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking
 around outside your body ~Elizabeth Stone

I blinked my eyes and they grew up...
My sweet daughter and her "little" brothers

A favorite of my grown-up boys

and my grown-up girl

Because your Children are still your children,  
your prayers will always have and impact in their lives! 
You may no longer be able to tell them what to do, 
but you can sure tell the enemy what to do.  ~ Stormie Omarian

God is good, He hears my prayers!
I have been blessed with three wonderful children who
all make me proud to be their momma.
 Love you Brianna, Brice and Gavin...Jenny and Chris too (my bonus kids)

~ mom

I'll have to admit...I've had to spend more time praying for this one...

Happy Mother's Day to you all


  1. Happy mothers day to you too. Your kids are delightful as grownups.

    I think each Mom has one that seems to push the limits all the time ("whose" limits change, though!!!!)! Mother's Day blessings to you..........AND, dare I say, I LOVE that last photo!!!!!! Hugs...................

  3. Ahhhh yes Doreen that last photo. Being an old ER nurse I wasnt thrilled about the motorcycle....but I had to turn my ER button off and be glad for Brice. He is a safe and responsible guy, and I just have to say one extra prayers that God will continue to watch over him. Hope you are having a nice Mother's day. :)

  4. Love the pic of Brice, he would. Thanks for all you've done and do for us! And for all the prayers! Love you!

  5. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Jackie. Well, I know you did. Such a sweet post with those photos and quotes and your thoughts. You say it well. We are blessed via motherhood, aren't we?

  6. Yes... we are blessed, hope you had a nice day as well :)
