Hello there my blog homies! I have a great give away today in honor of all you amazing mommas.

Who do kids run to when they want ultimate comfort from pain, heart ache, and frustration?


Who do your little ones want when they are sick (Heck, I still want my mommy when I'm sick.)?


Who's hugs have magical powers?


So, who can mom's count on when they are sick, sad, frustrated, and just plain need a hug (Diet Coke can't fix everything!)?

As I hear from each of you, sharing your life's struggles and joys with me, I find myself wanting to reach out and make all your problems go away. No one can do that, but there are little things that can help. So, I crocheted this blanket for you.

The blanket is made with a color fusion yarn. So, it has a variety of
greens, blues, yellows, reds, and browns. 
If you'd like to curl up with this afghan or know someone you'd like to give it to, here's what you need to do...

1) If you aren't already, become an official follower by clicking "follow" at the right of this blog's home page.
2) Leave a comment on this post regarding motherhood. That's it. Easy peasy.

Why do I encourage readers to "follow" this blog? Well, think about it. When you go to other blogs for information and see that a lot of people follow it, you gain confidence and interest in what you are about to read.

In the near future, I will be posting more useful and uplifting information for mothers, women, and those struggling with depression and anxiety (And info. for those with loved ones suffering). So, if you want to support this and give others confidence in reading this blog, please become an official follower. You can also show more support by inviting others to come read DHBH.

All my love to you this week as we celebrate the awesomeness of mothers!


  1. As I sit here working (well, taking a break to read your blog) I'm thinking about how cold it is in this room so that blanket looks awfully appealing :)

    My comment on motherhood: It's not for the faint of heart. :)

  2. Being a mother isn't always the easiest. The past couple of weeks have been very hard for me as a mom, first of all Ryan is working 16 to 18 hours a day, second, the morning sickness is just about killing me, and finally, my depression has really got the best of me right now, but every night when I go in to check on my sweet kids I am grateful for the little moments that I have with them and the blessing that it is to be their mom.

  3. The best kept secret of motherhood is that there is no magic age at which they "grow up" and you are "free" from the worries and responsibilities. The worries and responsibilities just shift from season to do the joys. (Hey, I'm 60, and I still have to call my mom and tell her I got home OK)

  4. Motherhood: The highest honor a women can get. The women that holds the heart of their children. They will always be a mom around even if the person who you call mom is actually your biological.
    A mom can be paternal, biological, or even someone else's mom that acts like yours.

    I love you Jody and you were my Young Women mom.

  5. Being a Mommy is the greatest joy I know! And having such a wonderful and supportive husband to stand by me through my personal struggles and difficulties makes me see how much he respects my role as the woman of the home. Being a mother is the most important job a woman could ever have, and if she were to be paid financially for all of her work, it'd be a TON. But no money could ever take the place of all the precious crayon drawings or finger paintings and snotted-on, slobbery t-shirts! -I love being Mama!

  6. Motherhood is- picking boogers out of other people's noses, cuddling up with someone who smells like poo, and scrubbing dried oatmeal off the table. Oh yeah, and it's also laughing hysterically at goofy dancing, grinning from ear-to-ear while a cute baby grins back, and getting the best hugs and kisses in the world. So, basically the greatest thing ever! :)

    I love your blanket Jody; it's beautiful!! I really need to brush up on my crocheting skills. I've never finished a blanket- I get far enough along that I can quit and say, "Never mind, it's gonna be a scarf."

  7. For me, motherhood right now means reading my husband's facebook status as "On the beach in Cape Coast," and having mine be "Holding a sick, feverish baby who just did diarrhea on my lap."

    It's all worth it, though, right? :D

  8. Motherhood is the best job in life. Without a Mother none of us would be on this earth. It is sharing the joys and excitements of your children, and their sorrow too. Only a mother is willing to let their child throw up on them, rather than having to clean it up off the floor or furniture. It is enduring the 9 months of being uncomfortable just to hold that beautiful baby in your arms and loving every moment of it. Happy Mothers Day to All!

  9. Being a mom has brought some of the most exciting and tender moments to me; as well as some of the most difficult and hair pulling. I love my little man more than I could have ever expected!! On another note...thank you so much for this blog. It has really helped me and I am so glad I got to know you a little bit at Telos. :)

  10. the most wonderful, most tiring, most frustrating, most rewarding, most scary, and most amazingly complex experience. Being a mother is a delicate balancing act of being a parent, a teacher, a homemaker, a friend, a wife, a daughter and an individual. I love being a mom to my wonderful little baby boy...even at the exhausting 10pm, 1am, 4am, & 7am feedings...thank God for coffee. :)

    Thank you Jody for your wondeful blog that helps many many people. Your blanket is beautiful and looks so comfy!
