Hourglass - Mindy Gledhill

I heard this first on Nienie Dialogues.  This perfectly describes how I am feeling.

Hourglass by Mindy Gledhill

Little boy, when you speak
I can’t help but kiss your cheeks
I love the way you grab my hands
And tell me all about your plans

Rocket high, comets fly
You and I could take a ride
And fly away to Neverland
And give our best to Peter Pan

When you reach for the stars
Don’t forget who you are
And please don’t turn around and grow up way too fast
See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life’s an hourglass
Life’s an hourglass

Story’s read, prayer is said
Close your eyes sleepyhead
While angels linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings
Just like you, I was small
Not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends.  I GET it now.  Really and truly.  And to my own momma, all the sacrifices you made and the example you set, thank you for it all.  I love you even more now.

The Strongest Woman I Know

Today is my momma's birthday. She is the strongest, most beautiful woman I know. She is the backbone of our family and the type of woman that I someday hope I can be. She has faced her life with so much grace and dignity that at times it amazes me.

Thank you momma for always being my cheerleader. I wouldn't be where I am in life without you. You have been my cheerleader, my teacher, my friend. You have pushed me when you knew I could do better. You never let me say quit. You taught me independience. You showed me that there was nothing beyond my grasp if I wanted it. You've let me fall and been there when I needed you to pick me up. You are the wife and mother I someday hope I can be. I love you so much.

Happy birthday Momma.
