Mothering.........My One True Calling





Mothering...the one thing I think I may have got right in my  life...I hope  :)  SB

It has been one of my most rewarding adventures,I do believe I was created to be a mother.

My first at just 15 years old.




Holding a nephew here


Tender years




He grew in my heart...not the womb,
but the love is equal to that of the womb


He grew up to be a Marine

And she a nurse




 Two strong capable young men...




My brood
I am proud of them all....just the same,and

I am so grateful for the journey of Motherhood....its been most rewarding, the most rewarding task of my life...being a mother.
