Mother's Day

I expected it to be tough. I have been preparing myself to feel sad, lonely, left out, upset. Instead I sit here feeling blessed. I spent the last 32 years with my mom and I am very grateful to have had that time with her. I miss her immensely every day but as I look around at the women in my life, I realize that I still have moms in my life. I have moms-to-be, I have new moms, stepmoms, well-seasoned moms, grandmothers, aunts, sisters. Today is about celebrating the sacrifices a women makes to bring up her children in this rough and tumble world. I salute all you moms out there. And I thank you for the things you do not only for your own children but for all the people in your lives. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Thanks for the salute! I'm pretty wrapped up in the whole process of becoming a mother again right now, and I really appreciate any positive input! I too treasure all the mothers in my life, and all the people who support and encourage me!

Oh my gosh - this post was so beautiful - it totally made me cry.

I am continually impressed by you and inspired by the way you look at the world.

Lots of love, and big, big cyber hugs.
