~And just like that, they were gone~

The night of Mother's day is quietly coming to a close....kids getting ready for the school week ahead...and the once  vampire hour keeping baby is tucked into bed fast asleep.

The day was even keel , brunch made with love by my husband and two of the kids...movies in the media room...calls from my kids to take.....and dinner out to our regular place ,where they know our names....

    ...we are a small group these days....

Faces of my dinner company....

 ...and showing a little boy a wishing fountain....

This is quietest  my house has been for a few weeks now... The comings and goings of Tessa and Leila, other sisters and friends coming over to say final goodbyes. 

 Its been a busy time....

            Lots of kisses to be had.....


     Lots of smiles to capture....


  A new son  joined our family....

  Memories to make....

....and bags to be packed .

Tessa was first to leave ...last Sunday....it was hard to see her go.

And in the early hours of this morning ,we said goodbye to Leila. That was just as hard.

I walk around to tidy up for the night and it is still....There are no whispers of a daughter talking with her husband long distance  on the sofa.....another daughter laughing at what her dad said.
There are reminders left of them and what they were doing before they left on their grand adventures...Nikes here , workout gear there...keys to a sports car left behind.

As hard as it was to see them off , I'm blessed with a loving and caring group of family and friends to keep me focused ....my grandmother who rang with her wise loving words and how they will be just fine , and not to forget my faith...to my friend John with...don't be sad. The pride of your daughters serving is awesome! They are right.

So ,as this mother's day rolls to a close....it was one for the books ,and I will remember it always!!!

~Happy Mother's Day where you are~
