What 's so Amazing?

Let me just tell you....
It is amazing that wishes DO come true...that prayers ARE answered, and that THESE kids call ME Mom. WOW. How did I get so blessed? How did I merit having Five perfectly healthy and only mildly temperamental kids? =)
As Mother's Day quickly approaches, I am finding myself pondering many many things about my age, my children, my family, and most of all, my gifts. This layout below holds all of that all wrapped up into two tiny photos. One photo of my family...because without a stable family life, my children would not be the healthy, happy, free spirited kids they are today. The other photo is of my five blessings. My kids. My loves. What is so amazing? THEY CALL ME MOM.



I used this sketch from the Crate Paper blog for my inspiration...as well as the layout consisting of almost entirely Crate Paper. I {heart} Crate Paper!


I also used the song prompt from Scrapping the Music for my title and journaling. I am just an old softie...and this song..."The Rainbow Connection" was one of my absolute FAVORITE songs when I was a little girl. It is the Kermit the Frog song! you know....the one where he is playing the banjo sitting on the log. It struck a chord in my heart strings and I HAD to do this! This is the part that got me...

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
.........
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
There's something that I'm supposed to be



Yes...I hear these sweet voices calling my name. There IS something that I am supposed to be. I am Mom. THEIR Mom. And they are my rainbow connection.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!!!!!!!
