Calling All Mothers of Boys...

Tabitha of Team Studer wrote the most beautiful post about mothers and sons!  Her 25 Rules for Mothers of Sons is not just eloquently written and full of many truths, but also a poignant reminder of the enormous responsibility we have in raising future husbands...fathers...or  those called to the consecrated life.

Grab a cup of coffee...and a box of Kleenex...and take a couple of moments for yourself.  You'll be glad you did!

And here's a shot of my own team...Team Brothers (and Sister)!

Happy Thursday!


  1. I will read the article today, thank you for pointing it out. I love the new look. I am having trouble with the light blue words. I think my eyes are going bad. Any one else having trouble reading it, or do I need glasses? Or I could just blame the twins - I blame them for everything that isnn't working on mom's body right now. LOL
    Val, I hope to one day meet your kiddos in person. They are adorable.

  2. Since I didn't have brothers around or sons...I always feel like I'm missing out!

  3. Since I have a son I will head on over. I am always in the mood for a great read.

  4. Thanks for this link, loved it! Your kiddos are too cute - must be hard to get them all together to take a photo!

  5. Awwwww, that was nice!! Love the picture of the mama holding the baby at the ball game and catching the ball!!

  6. Just wanted to say thank you again for your support and excitement about the magazine! I am just so touched by everyone's reaction. Happy New Year to you!

  7. Hi Valerie

    Followed you back here from a comment you left on Women Living Well today. What cute children you have! I just wanted to say that you shouldn't feel guilty about putting your children into Catholic school. I firmly believe that when they are young they need to have the proper influences around them until they are grounded. With my two eldest (19 & 21) I took them out of Catholic school after four and 2 yrs respectively because I was a little discontented and because of the season of life I was in and that grounding still served them well in the non-denominational school they attended.

    They re-entered Catholic School at high-school level and right now my eldest who is away at college still upholds the values she learned and was grounded in. Now she is applying those values in her dorm and hopefully making a difference there!

    God bless


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
