"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother."
- quote Abraham Lincoln

Today is a day to honor our mother's. I know for some of us, this day will be bittersweet. I'm very blessed to still have my Mom, and even though I don't live near her, I can pick up the phone and know she is on the other end.

My heart is heavy for all of those having their first Mother's Day without their loved one.

Today I'm thinking of all the children (young and old) who lost their Moms... remember the good things she did for you and do them for your children.

Today I'm thinking of all the Mom's who lost a child... remember the love and adoration that child gave you, and it will help you through your darker days ahead.

Today I'm thinking of all the single Moms... your children see your strength.

Today I'm thinking of all the Men who had to step up when they became the "Mom" as well as the Dad... your children will learn balance and diversity.

Today I'm thinking of all the women out there who would have made great Moms but couldn't... I feel your lonesomeness.

Today I'm thinking of all the Mom's out there... your wonderful! Thanks for all you do for us!

Happy Mother's Day!!

That was really beautiful, I'm sitting at the coffee shop trying to hold back the tears in my eyes. I too was thinking and praying for those who have lost their mothers. I have never been very close to my mom, but she is still my mom and I am thankful that I still have her.
You are such a loving person, and your friends and family are very blessed to have you!

B.B... I'm sorry I brought you to tears. I just wrote how I feel... this year seems like a very sad year for many folks. I just wanted them to realize they are not alone.

However, I was very happy to read your post about the new baby for Mother's Day. That is totally cool! Give my best wishes to your friend.

PN in PC... Hey there! Thanks for coming by and commenting. I hope you had a nice MD weekend! BTW... what happened to JR? LOL! See ya later Mrs. Ewing.
