Happy Mother's Day!




To all you moms out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!

For the last 9 years this day has been one of mixed emotions. After losing my own mother 9 years ago I have struggled with sadness on Mother's Day, but my own children make it a happy occasion. It does seem to get a little easier every year though last night I had a thought of "I really wish I could talk to Mom about this" in response to some current personal issues. Maybe now I choose not to dwell on her not being here and maybe that is why it seems easier. And certainly, my own children's love and affection eases any sadness, especially as they get older and more expressive.

Have a great mothers' day! And you can always ask...you just may have to listen a little harder for the answers.

Happy Mother's Day!
I lost my own mother 14 years ago, and it really is a blessing to have your children close on this special day.

BTW, love your new ride!

mr g, you're right! I hope it was a peaceful day for you.

sierrabella, thanks on the new car! Yeah, being a mom is the best thing in the world.

cip, thanks! I'm not all bad! lol

kat, thanks, that is one of my very favorite photos!

marsha, do tell about the relatives! I might know them, but maybe not because I don't know that many people. But wouldn't it be cool if I did?

rainypete, thanks! I hope that is true.
