Thoughtful Thursday

A new idea for my blog.  Every Thursday I will post something thoughtful, thought-provoking or timely.  Doesnt mean that is all I will post…but it will be my starting point. And I got the delightful idea from a book I just received as a gift: Minutes from the Great Women’s Coffee Club timeliess wisdom from remarkable women by Angela Beasley.  I highly recommend and THANK YOU Nicole!!! For this and the tea and precious little angel.  You are a dear!

Anywho I thought I might share a quote, though or impression on Thursdays. Here is the first go at it.

I had found that motherhood was a profession by itself, just like a school teacher or lecturer.

~ Ida B. Wells

Ida B. Wells (July 16, 1862 – March 25, 1931) was an African American civil rights advocate and an early women’s rights advocate active in the Woman Suffrage Movement. She was the co-founder of the NAACP, a journalist, lecturer, educator and writer.

Green June~ain’t that the truth!!
My thoughts are “Motherhood is a profession that never ends and never has retirement”! Fortunately, the benefits sometimes make it all worthwhile~yes? No longer do I have an adoring little girl who wants to hold my hand everywhere we go, but now have a successful daughter who is strong on her own! Perhaps that is my success, but boy do I miss that little blondheaded darlin who thought I knew everything!

I am ever grateful for having been given the blessings of motherhood here on earth. As your previous poster has said, motherhood is an eternal profession, that goes on forever. I am thankful it is so.


I cannot imagine myself as anything but being a Mom, I absolutely love it!
