A Day to Honor Moms Everywhere

                                                        (Angel in front of mirror on fence in our yard)

Today, Mother's Day, gives us the unique opportunity to honor Moms and  Moms-to-Be everywhere.

Women who wanted to be Moms and were unable to also count!  This is your day, too.

It's been nine years since my own Mother died and there's not a day that goes by that I still don't miss her terribly.

You know what?  The Moms who have gone to the other side of life still live in our hearts.  They are part of us-----part of our smiles, our tears, our memories and even our futures!

My Mother and I had a lot of conflicts. Her choices were often far different from mine and vice versa.

However, she was an incredibly important part of my life.  She heavily influenced so much of how I think, act and feel.

She was a very good, decent human being with a big heart. She was a giver, that's for sure, and I loved her more than words could ever say.

Nothing made her happier than her five daughters and then her grandchildren.

My deepest regret is that she isn't here to see my own grandchildren, the little dolls.  But I think she sees them from heaven!

May your Mother's Day be blessed. May it also be filled to the brim and then overflowing with love!

Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes, Susan. I hope you had a lovely day as well. All my chickadees were with me this year, so it was a very nice day. I miss my mom terribly too, but she is in my heart always. There's nothing like a mother's love, is there?

Have a terrific week, Susan.
