You have a lovely mama's day with your mama, Nina!

Kathryn Stripling Byer

Happy sweet Mama's day to you and your mama, my dear Nina. What grace to have you call to me Friday afternoon as I was striding into Ingles, in a snit over all kinds of stuff, feeling thoroughly disgusted with myself, mostly. And to share with me your plunder, all those beautiful jewels and the toran embroidered by some mother, no doubt, in India. The "wildings" are geting some soft mother's rain today. Hope you are getting the nurture you need, too. And what good squishy little (and big) feet in the sand!

Tina in McLeansville

well done, my friend. enjoy the day...and the next and the next...with your mama. hugs to you both...xoxo


You are a cherished mentor of life. I love you xxoo


Love this. I wrote much the same today. Admiration to you for raising those boys so well... BY YOURSELF.
It's hard enough when two people do it... for one, a monumental feat.
Best wishes my dear one.

You two just enjoy your day anyway and anyhow you can. Two wonderful mamas!

Lorri Scott

Nina, I always amazes me the bond between you and your sons. Job well done my friend!


Bonnie Moench

Even though we can't be with our children today...they all live so far away....I think we must have done a good job, to raise such happy, independent children. Children that are not afraid to go out into the world on their own....

Happy Mothers Day...

We have some things in common, you and I. Our boys are about the same age (I only have one) and was a single Mom from the time he was four. There is no one on this earth that I have fought with, fought about or fought for more than my son. I admire him and am so inspired my him. I love him more than anything else and I like you, look at him and say well done! Happy Mother's Day sweet Nina and well done, We are so blessed to have our boys.

Hello Nina,
A dear friend of mine opened my eyes to your endearing blog. Thank you for sharing so much of you.

Folk Heart

This is such a dear and wonderful post. I was right there with you at a similar beach in that very year. You took me right back to that moment in time...and the sounds and even the scents come back to me now. This is quite possibly the best Mother's Day posting ever. Many thanks!


It seems harder to be a mother when they are grown men. To not be too intrusive...To not see them often enough. To love them just as much, but not able to cuddle with them.... At least it is for me. I struggle.


Sweet photo!


we just back from seaside....our favorite place in the world to go....and the neighbor of seagrove.

for the past four years, we've been spending part our winters down there...we're up to six weeks at a time, which is heavenly.

i know you are so busy, and that blog reading isn't what you have time for, but i've been posting many of our beach photos from this trip if you'd like to see them.

the best part of the trip....our daughter was proposed to and i'm going to be a mother-in-law. so fun !!!
