Happy Mother’s Day!
What is life really like in a house of five boys?
It can be a lot of work, but it’s a LOT of fun too – This is just part of why I wouldn’t trade my life for anything!
Happy Mother’s Day
from all of us to all of you!
May God Bless You!
PS I may have gone overboard on the photos! Thanks for bearing with me! 🙂

I truly enjoy your posts and the photos of your boys! Your challenges are many, as are your joys.
Thank you so much for your beautifully said (and truthful!) words, Susan – many challenges and MANY joys!
My hat’s off to you. I have one child, a son. Because of my chronic pain and mental health issues, raising more than one child would have been overwhelming for me. He turned out well in spite of having a mother like me.
I’m visiting from the A to Z challenge list. My team’s poetry blog is at Poetry of the Netherworld.
Hi Cheesemeister – love the name btw. I am sorry to hear about your pain and mental health issues. There are so many challenges to this life, so many things to be overwhelmed about. I have been through some very bad experiences too. I see your blog is so full of darkness. I am sorry to see that. I know how the pull of darkness lures people in. It is like the warm comfort of the womb, familiar, enveloping, present. LIGHT is so much more glaring, so much more frightening in so many ways because when we move into the Light our flaws are made visible and we risk others seeing us as we truly are; we risk seeing ourselves as we truly are, but the Light is also healing and peaceful and genuine and Love. The darkness always threatens the Light, but darkness never extinguishes Light.
I have a friend who says it takes 66 days to form a habit. What if you made the Light a habit (I’m not asking you to believe yet, although I openly admit hoping your “habit” becomes so much more than that!)? What if you read the Bible or prayed the Rosary, researching and contemplating its Mysteries, every day for 66 days for about 20 minutes a day? Even if you think it won’t make a difference – it’s only 20 minutes. What have you got to lose?
In the meantime, I probably sound like I’m beating you over the head with my faith, and that’s not what I am trying to do. I am trying to reach out and extend my hand because I know you can rise with a strength that is not your own! I will shut up now and just add you to my prayers, hoping you too will be feeling the Light shine on your heart and in your mind soon.
God Bless You, Cheesemeister!
Holly Cow, 5 boys…that makes me tired just thinking about it. Don’t know how you keep your sanity. Awesome pictures. Road tripping through a-z, as I continue to blog a-z in May.
Thanks Sandy – Who said I kept my sanity? Who said I ever had any in the first place??? 😉
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll run by Traveling Suitcase and check your site out too!
Such thoughtful boys. “I’d do anything for…my mom.” Melt my heart! And saving ice cream for the end of YOUR class–aw, how sweet. How blessed you are.
Just want to thank you for writing this blog and wish you a Happy Mothers’ Day! Hope you will keep on writing.
Thank you Amanda. Life can be hard, but that doesn’t have to define us. I hope this helps someone. 🙂
Nothing, and I mean nothing, means love more than saving ice cream for me. Wow! Your kids are amazing. And so are you 🙂
