Sunday Snippets 1.25.15

Another busy week has been left in the dust. I can’t believe we are in the last week of January already!

A Mama’s Love for 14 Years

On this day, 14 years ago, I became a mother.  Our “baby” Patrick is 14.  He isn’t so much of a baby anymore, in fact he is taller than me. Last week I babysat for a sweet 3 month old boy. His mama had to go back to work and their daycare wasn’t available yet,…
