Sometimes, others say things more eloquently than I could ever hope to. Here are some of my favorites on motherhood…

Irish Baby Blessing
May all the blessing of our Lord touch your life today.
May He send His little angels to protect you on your way.
Such a wee little fit, sent from above.
Someone so precious to cherish and love.
May sunshine and moonbeams dance over your head.
As you quietly slumber in your bed.
May good luck be with you wherever you go.
And your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.”
There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.” ~ Jill Churchill

While cheering my Indiana Hoosiers on to sweet, sweet victory (suck it DUKE!), I took one for the team. I went down, and I went down hard. I landed directly on my ankle, which made an odd noise- much like a POP- when I landed on it. The next morning, I woke up to dark purple (Indiana University crimson?) ankle that was at least twice … [Read More...]
