Happy Mother's Day

For those of us who are fortunate enough to have our children or our mothers living near us I hope that you get to spend some of your day with them.

For those of us who are not as fortunate to have our children or our mothers with us I hope that you go to the place that they will always be with you and have a sweet little visit with them for some part of the day.

I hope that you all have a day that you feel appreciated.

Angelique I am so proud of you and the mother you are to our sweet Josephine.  I hope that you have a special Mother’s Day.

A few quotes I love in honour of mothers:

Now that  ...  my kids are grown, I understand how much work and love it takes to raise and to keep a family together.  The example of your strength, devotion, and patience is now rippling through the generations.  Thank you!  ~  Forest Houtenschil

My mom is a never-ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being.  I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.  ~  Graycie Harmon

Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.  ~  William Makepeace Thackeray

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  ~  Tenneva Jordan

Happy Mothers day Renee. I got the apple tree I always wanted. Roots are so important.

Thanks Mom. As you would always say, I learnt it from my Mom.

I have a quote:
"My mother is a poem I'll never be able to write/though everything I write is a poem to my mother."
Sharon Doubiago

Happy Mother's Day to you.
Hope you enjoyed yourself.
Love you,

As I read and re-read your blog I continue to be touched by your words, there is much feeling in them and I am again inspired to be your sister it is such a priviledge, I know the love. Keep writing "Dearest" keep writing.

Outstanding that we became mothers for the first time just days apart, and how lucky was I to have you and my mother to look up to for advice. Now we share the dream of grandparenting together, nice isn't it,watching our own children become parents, just wonderful.

Ang, love the tribute to your Grandmother, wow...

Happy Mother's day to you.
Love you
