First Post for "Thursday Thoughts" --- Moms!

Moms never take time for themselves....  well I didn't...
In 1987 I got divorced.  My kids were 3 and 5.  The first weekend their Dad took them for visitation, I all of a sudden realized, I had the weekend, all to myself.  What will I do?  Well it was a very boring weekend. In the first hour I polished my finger nails and toes nails, because as a Mom you can't do that, as you need to be ready at a moments notice to wipe a nose or get food ready or when they are babies change a diaper.  Next I read a magazine and watched TV.  I really missed Jewels and BJ.  My whole life was just them... I was a Mom.  Yes I sewed some too...I am sure it was something for them.  I really didn't know how to take time for me...

Eventually I learned how to take time for me.  I would call it "Minutes for Me"! So that is why May for Me (for You) is so important -- Take time for you!



In 1987 I was 29 years old. When I look at this photo I think how young I looked!  WOW!
Here is my family the day after my 50th Birthday Party. 2007 - I am getting older...

In honor of Mother's Day --- Mom and Me! 2011

In honor of Mother's Day this is one of my favorite photos of Jewels, BJ, and Me. It was our Wedding Party Day.  Ritch and I had got married in Vegas two weeks before the party. 1992



Thanks for letting me share my thoughts and photos. 

Friday's post is FAQ about quilting and me.
