Kathy was 6lbs 13 ozs. and Scottie was 6lbs 10 oz. I had a full tummy!

SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
Thinking of all the mother's day I've celebrated in my life, one thing comes to mind---time.   The time you spend with your loved ones is so precious.   As I grow older, all those memories sustain and comfort me and along with it comes wishing... wishing I could experience all those women who made me ME all over again.  

Happy Mother's Day to you all !


For my mom

So call your mom OFTEN
Talking to Mom is good!  Texting and email is speedy but the next time need to dial down your stress, pick up a phone and call your Mom. The sound of your mom's voice can reduce stress hormones and boost production of the feel-good hormone oxytocin.

Why Moms shouldn't text


Out of the mouth of babes
When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower. She said, "Mommy, you are getting fat!" I replied, "Yes, honey, remember Mommy has a baby growing in her tummy."

"I know," she replied, but what's growing in your butt?"





 “Hey, Mom, can I tell you something?” puffed five-year-old Terry, as he rushed around the store with his mother.
“No, Terry, I'm too busy,” said his mother.
A little while later he tried again, “Hey, Mom…”
“Don’t bother me. I’m trying to think,” his mother interrupted.
Finally at home, Terry said, “Now can I tell you?”
“Oh, yes, what is it?” said his mother in exasperation.
“I wanted to tell you that your pants have a big rip in the back.”

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan


All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp



'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
