We've just finished Mother's day; one of my favorite days of the year. It's not the amazing breakfast my boys always prepare. It's not even the showering of attention and affection. Truth be told - my boys are both very good at that kind of thing on a daily basis, so I don't have to wait for one day out of the year to feel appreciated. No, for me, Mother's Day is a day to stop and think. A day to put aside whatever other encumbrances have been biding for my time. A day to put things back into proper perspective.

This is me and my boy not long after our first Mother's Day together back in 2002:

and here we are together yesterday, as the sun began to set on Mother's Day '11:

Things are finally back in their proper perspective. *sigh*

I've had a tough month. Too many places to be. Too many needs to fill. Too many decisions to make. Too many thoughts running 'round my old grey head. Not enough hours in the day.

And too many times, I let it pull me completely OUT of perspective. I lose track of those things that truly matter.

As you can guess, my family takes the hit the hardest. I have great support in my boys. And they always bounce back and say 'It's OK. We understand." And for that I adore them even more.

But it is their love, their support, their gentle nudge to get things BACK into perspective that makes my world go round.

Color me one lucky Momma!

Our friends over at are all about celebrating Mom this week. Pop on over and check it out!

About This Blog

I'm a proud mom of a very active little boy. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to document the many milestones throughout his life so far. These moments are precious to me. So I grabbed a camera and snapped away. I dabbled a bit in scrapbooking and took some time to learn at least the basics of photography. After all, kids grow so fast and you can't turn back the time.

But as he got old enough for school and team sports, I was so very disappointed in the offerings out there. I'm proud of my All Star in every thing he pours his heart into!

So I picked up a copy of Photoshop and tried my best to create momentos to capture these memories.

I'd love a chance to help you stop time for a moment as well.
