Inspiration: You.Are.My.Sunshine

"my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey, 
you'll never know dear how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away... "

When thinking about "Sunshine" the first thing that came to mind was the song...
I can't tell you how many times I sang this song to my babies when they were born. 
I had Grayson Joseph at the age of 22_ 

later Gabrielle Renee was born_

and 19 months after that Kayli Grace was here.

All of my kids were rockers_we rocked to go to sleep_we rocked watching cartoons_Grayson even used to sleep sideways in the rocking chair.

So many times we all 3 were piled in the chair or 1 was sitting beside me while I nursed the last.

But this was the song that we sang over & over to calm fears _ to hush the world out _ to make them feel my love...

They are what turn my grey skies blue & Gray, Gab, & KK..I love you...

Linking up today over at Gussy Sews !

  4. Your family is beautiful! And the song came to my mind right away too :) Stopping by from Gussy :)

  5. So sweet and beautiful. I rocked all 3 of my boys to that song too. It always makes me tear up when I sing it to them now because they are getting so big. You have a gorgeous family!

  6. PRECIOUS! I sing this to my sweet boy too! And he'll stop right in his tracks when I start singing it!

  7. so sweet! can't wait to sing this to my own someday.

  8. Visiting form Gussy Sews. Love your pics...and your blog is beautiful!! I too thought of this song when writing my inspiration post :)

  9. PS: Your comment on my latest post made me LOL! I think the back-handed compliment is a southern specialty - at least that's what I've thought since moving from MI to TX :)

  10. so sweet. it's funny how before your children are born you really don't know what sunshine is.

  11. You have a beautiful family!! The last picture is so sweet!
