Happy Mother's Day

I'd like to wish a very happy Mother's Day to everyone, not just the mothers. I've had friends who didn't like their mothers for various reasons. Some women just aren't really good mothers, and some children aren't very good either. It balances out somewhere down the line.

Regardless, try to appreciate the woman that gave you life even if she hasn't always met your expectations. And mothers, do appreciate the children you've been assigned to teach how to be good human beings.

We mothers learn so much from our children if we pay attention to them.

For those whose mothers are gone, like mine, take this day to meditate on how your mother influenced your growth. We are allowed to miss our mothers. There is no shame in it. Taking one day a year to mourn is okay.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Happy Mother's day :-) Did your kids bake you a cake?

The older I get the more I wish I was somebodies mother :-( Sometimes I really think I am just wasting my life, missing the really important things.

I dad sent flowers to my mother, real ones, virtually ordered. It's her first year without her mother.

Btw, I have booked a trip and will indeed go visit my family in Germany next month!

typo: I had send flowers - no dad around here.

Dear Rae Ann

Happy Mother's day!. Remember what Lynyrd Skynyrd used to sing

"Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say..."

(Simple Man)

and yes,there is no shame in it.

Have a very nice day. Best.

Touching and true words indeed. The impact they make on our lives is ongoing and lifelong. I constantly learn things from my kids that amaze me.

Bee, thanks! No cake, but they did bring me breakfast in bed. :-) You will be a great mother. Maybe while you're home for the summer you can work on that. ;-)

Rafa, thanks and that's a great song! I'm so impressed with your musical tastes and knowledge.

dh, thanks! It was nice.

Hi Ann! Thanks for stopping by. I've been so busy lately that the blog has been a bit neglected.

rainypete, thanks! Kids are amazing.
