  1. Dear Dale,

    From the minute they make their appearance, those babies take center stage, don’t they? Eventually we get our lives back, don’t we? (Sort of. 😉 ) Brilliant and lovely piece.

    Shalom and lotsa ever-widening hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Yes, indeed. They take centre, top, bottom, inside stage. We do? Oh thank goodness… 😉

      Shalom and lotsa mother-loving 😉 love,



  2. Q

    Why didn’t I see this in Reader? Hmmm. I hate you WP gremlins, I just do.

    But I wasn’t gonna miss sneaking a peek, wondering about the 35 word challenges you was talking about. And look, a 31 word challenge. So beautiful and true, just like the girl who brought it to life. And not to mention, a beautiful mama to boot.

    Nothing marginal about this piece. Or you.

    You, are just so lovely.

  3. You sure know your womanliness and momness. Describing them perfectly in 35 words. You’re a supermom, I’m sure. Wonderful photos. You look so pretty and happy.

  4. Beautiful, whatever page you are on.
    The pic with you in white, with flowers and the 2 boys is magical!
    Maybe you should listen to a madrigal.

    Honestly, I thought the prompt word was madrigal, at first.
    My eyes and brain do that, time to time. ⚡️💥
