Mother's love

Thank you everyone for the sweet thoughts for our oldest. He came home today in much better spirits! I think things will blow over eventually...And yes, how can we grow and become the people God wants us to be if we never get any polishing?
If I could I would carry all three through life! "Go ahead, I say, let me have it! ...I've been through **!#... I can handle it. But I know, how will the boys learn how to deal with anything? I say...Lord, allow just enough in their lives to help them to become the Great Men You have planned out for them to be..."
Being a mom is such a privilege..I thank the Lord I can be the mom of 3!!
Thank you guys again for your sweet words! You really mean alot to me...
Have a great Mon. evening everyone, I'm off to give my guys a hug!!

Being a mom is such a privelege-- along with the worry, fretting, and frustrating moments comes overwhelming joy! And of course as a creative and a mom- you came up with such a fabulous idea with your frames and kid's artwork! Thanks for sharing!

You're so sweet! It's hard not to follow behind them or in front of them even blocking the evil they may come in contact with. But you have to let them work it out on their own. That's the true test of a mom.

Sorry that happened to your boy. I hope he can rise above those punks and laugh it off and come out shining. I love your old photos and how you are using them!!!

Hi Christine, I'm so sorry to read about what happened for your son. My heart goes out to him.
On a lighter note, your Photoshopped images are looking great. Can't wait to try the program out myself.

Oh Christine, what heartbreak you've been through this weekend! Your poor sweetie! But let me tell you that I'd likely get laughed out of the gym too. You'd think that after years of ballet, I'd have acquired some rythmn. Nope! Your son will indeed move past this episode though. We've all had horridly embarassing moments and we've all lived through them and most of us can laugh about them now. Tell him to pray for those kids 'cause you know, the Bible says that by doing so we reap coals of fire on their heads, lol!! Kidding about the coals of fire - You're a great mom to be so hurt for him! Blessings... Polly

I just read your previous post. Kids can be so cruel and I am so sorry for what happened to your son. Things like that hurt Mom's heart more than the child. We think how could anyone hurt MY child like that? He'll learn from that experience and end up being a better person than that ol' bully. xoxo Lynn

I hate it when our kids are hurting...all I ever want for my boys is to be happy! But alas...It can't always be the way I want it. Life can be cruel. Kids can be so hurtful to one another but I'm sure your son will rise above it all and just move on!

Hi, Christine, I didn't get a chance until now to come back & say that I looked at your new fall wreath...ala Pottery Barn. Very pretty! So glad you were inspired too. That was a great catalog this time.

I love being a Mom. I love my BOY.
He acts so tough around his Dad and brother. But he always softens in his Mommy's arms. Have a great week.

I am sooo sorry that happened to your baby! (Because they're always our babies.) Doesn't that make the mother bear in you come out?! Ugh. Those boys and their parents should be ashamed of themselves. Hugs from us civilized folk.
