Happy Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome To Happy Tuesday Blog Hop
 This blog hop will run from Tuesday the 7th to Thursday the 9th. I will aim to start a new blog hop every Tuesday and will post an inspirational story or poem to help inspire you to have a great day and wonderful week.

*****
Here's a poem I love that helps you to feel better about being a mother:


ODE TO MOTHERS EVERYWHERE

Today I left some dishes dirty,
The bed I made at three thirty.

The nappies soaked a little longer,
The odor grew a little stronger.

The crumbs I spilt the day before
Are staring at me from the floor.

The finger prints there on the wall,
Will likely still be there next fall.

Shame old lazy bones you say,
Just what have you done today?

I nursed a baby till he slept,
I held a toddler while she wept.

I played a game of hide and seek;
I squeezed a toy so it would squeak.

I pulled a wagon, sang a song,
I taught a child right from wrong.

What did I do this whole day through?
Not much that shows, I guess it’s true.

Unless you think that what I’ve done,
Might be important to someone.

With bright blue eyes and soft blonde hair,
If that is true, I’ve done my share.

  4. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog & following + participating in my Tuesday Tag Along. I am now one of your new followers. I will surely participate in your blog hop as well. The only thing is I don't have anything inspirational on my blog at the momant, my blog is fairly know. I been on since 2009 but I haven't been active in blogging because I was busy before with changing the templates & converting the 3 original blogs I had into one big one. Is it okay if I just link up my page without putting the inspiritional post?

  5. Hey! Following you back from TTT Tuesdays. Having my husband in the Marines is tough sometimes. But for the most part it's not too bad. He is in a unit that doesn't deploy so he hasn't been to and won't go to Iraq or Afghanistan. The only way that would happen would be if he re-enlisted and that WILL NOT happen - he hates it. But thanks for stopping by. I love your blog!

  22. First of all that poem made my day! You have no idea! I'm going to be joining your blog hop as soon as I get done posting this.

    I also see you do crafts! I am starting reviews and giveaways this week. I'd love to feature you. I'd just need something to review and then something to giveaway, you could save the giveaway item for the winner to contact you and send it directly to them. I see a Taggie blanket on your header. That would be perfect for a review from us because I have an 8 month old daughter. Just let me know what you think. :)

    I'm your newest follower from the Blog Hops.
    I hope to see you follow back, I love new blog friends!

    I hope you have a great week!

  32. Thank you for following me and leaving me such an amazing comment.  We all can achieve our passions in life...even with the challenge of kids.

    I read about your Bfing and I applaud you.  I had a very hard time bfing due to my son being tongue tied, and had to stop after 6 months due to problems with all the hormones.  While my doctor told me it was my choice, he explained I would continue to have medical problems till my hormones came in check.  I really wish I could have fed my son long, and have the same guilts as you with your son. 

    Way to go mama!  You are a role model for mothers.
