Too Busy, Cloudscapes and Congrats!

I am sorry I've not been very consistent with my posts - I'm still finding myself way too busy. This is not a bad thing - in fact the irony of it all is that it generates more blog-fodder than I could ever time time to write about... only now I don't have the time to do that. Seems silly. So please forgive me if I've not visited your blogs lately - I'm going to do a morning of sit & sip and catch up with you as soon as I am able! Its not for a lack of 'want to' LOL!

I had a lovely Mother's Day! The best ever, in fact. As I was thinking on it, about how Mother's Day is a day to give and receive honour to our Mom's, and as Moms... I turned this idea around - I wrote a love-letter to our children. For, without being able to "Mother" them, my role would be unfulfilled. It would be like a musician never being able to touch an instrument, an artist with no paper nor pencil or brush. The joy of being a Mom is truly only realized when your role is recognised, encouraged.

I thank God for our children. My cup truly runs over!

Saturday was a day of amazing cloudscapes. I made myself wander outdoors several times throughout the day - each time the sky had rearranged to make a new stunning scene. It was breathtaking. I should have made a bowl of popcorn and kicked back in a lawnchair all day to watch the show being played out. I did take photos to share. I'm going to post a few here - and I've also made a slideshow which I'll try to host at the side of my blog!

Short and sweet - last but not least, I'd like to say CONGRATULATIONS to my friend JanMary - who's just opened her own ETSY shop, featuring her beautiful, wearable art! You can find her blog HERE, and her shop HERE!

  2. BUSY? Such a familiar sound! Oh Barb, I do agree that all of the busyness makes for WONDERFUL blogging and I am SO happy that you had such a LOVELY Mother's Day!

    I feel as you do, without my children, I would NOT have the opportunity to participate in the MOST wonderful role of MOTHERHOOD! I love my children MORE than words can express and was blessed to have physically spent my day with two of them yesterday!

    CLOUDS! Oh my! I would be right beside you in that lawn chair girlfriend!!! Robert and I love to sit out on our deck and just observe nature. I must blog about my Dr. Dolittle whilst I am thinking of it! GORGEOUS snaps of your sky art darlin'! Thank you for sharing with us!

    Wishing you a MOST gorgeous week my friend and I shall catch you on the flip-side!

    Love and hugs,
    Linda :)
