Feelings Friday

Just got back from Walmart. As I walked through the aisles I realized my kids were too old for the little clothes, too old for the toys. I felt weepy and hopeful all at the same time.

Moms, if you haven't had a chance to watch this yet. It is well worth it. Get past the blush, get past the use of "countless" when a more precise number would have sufficed. Grab a tissue, and let's go...

I wish for all of us, the gift of an ordinary day.

I love this video--it is so very true. A dear friend gave me the book for Mother's Day. It's an okay read, but I think I prefer hearing her speak. Thanks for sharing.

I felt like she was talking about my life. My boys are aged 14 to 23 and while some of them are still home, I know it's only for a brief moment.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh wow! What a tear jerker.

I need to get off the computer and go talk to my girls!

I can't click on something that is promised to be a tear jerker!

But I think about the passage of time a lot. And miss the babies that my kids were.
