Thank you for your comment in my blog.Blessings to you and yours.
thank you Romi and the same to you
Your kids love you, and you are blessed by each other, and now grandkids. That is a wonderful thing, Brenda.
Thank you Annie... and it is indeed!
I don't mind sharing Tuesdays with Josie - the more the merrier, right? :)I am not my mother either -- even though in my case it wouldn't be a bad thing if I was -- but even still, I am my own person. There are things that I like from her that I take....and things I don't take because they don't apply or suit me. I heard it put once that your ancestors pass down the "tool box" of life to you, but it's your choice which tools you will use from that box. Some will have filled it with bad tools, or ones that look good but don't necessarily get the job done, whereas others - will be the perfect tool for the job at hand. It's up to us to know the difference. But -- we don't have to use those crappy tools - we can choose to leave them in the box.but I am grateful that I inherited a pretty good tool box. :)
LOL... I never thought about it like that. The really crappy tools have taught me to choose new ones or create better ones. I'm not sure there were any good tools in my inherited tool box.It's funny because I have spoken with a lot of women in my age bracket who are just having grandchildren and it seems like we all got the same 'mother'
You should hop over to the Wednesday blog by Joyce at From this Side of the Pond. Come see me tomorrow as I will be participating. Thank you for visiting my blog today.
I will check it out
You seem to be too worried about time, the post is there and waiting on Wednesday you have plenty of time. Mothers can be hard acts to follow so don't...you are special so let memories of you be special too.
Old Egg is right, Brenda, I leave Two Shoes Tuesday open all week because life happens and we can't always get around to writing when we want! I won't ever be the least offended if you wait to link up what you write, It's worth waiting for! I can relate to your commentary on mothers. Mine was far from the worst, when it came to meeting our physical needs she did a great job, but she had no idea what to do with a weird kid like me, and we were never able to make a real connection, even after I grew up. I have continued on some of the family traditions that were good ones, but I made darn sure that I support and encourage my own children to be who they are and go after what they want! I love your thankful list! I often remind folks that it is the little everyday blessings that surround us that we tend to overlook but would have miserable lives without. Family is everything, and enough to make ends meet is good enough. I suspect you are at the top of your children's blessings list, you are the kind of mom others aspire to be!
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here
