  2. I received it from a family member this morning. Katrina truly understands what it means to be a mother. I think her book would be a great read. Thanks for stopping by, Carole. Have a terrific weekend.

  3. I'm not a mother but I am a parent so I can relate to Katrina's reading and I found it very moving!
    In fact it seems like every blog I visit at the moment has some content that tugs at my heartstrings.
    Thanks for sharing this Joylene and I hope you have a great Saturday night.

  9. What a moving read - makes one appreciate even more the little things in life. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you for stopping by Joylene. I did a lot of shopping around and godaddy.com offered a lot for the price - and delivered. Of course, companies change so one never knows about later.

  10. Thanks, Kittie. I'm definitely going to check out godaddy. I've put it off long enough, time to get my own name. Have a super weekend.

  11. As a gramma looking back, I can say with authority that Katrina has really nailed all those seemingly ordinary but very special moments of parenting! If only we could freeze frame some of the best parts of our children's lives to replay during some of the more difficult parts, because there are always some of those times, too. It's a great video... I'm going to have to pass it along to my grown kids. :)

  13. Joylene, thanks for sharing that. It brought tears to my eyes. Tears of knowing and understanding. My son graduated on Sunday, so I've been doing a lot of reflecting on all the things that have happened through the years and wondering what the future holds for my son and for my husband and I.

  14. I feel for you, Susanne. I remember when our youngest graduated. I felt very displaced when he moved out. Now we're off to New Brunswick in September to the birth of his first child. The cycle continues, and yes, Katrina says so well.
