Happy Mother's Day everyone! I do not know about you, but Mother's day has never been one of my favorite days. Please don't get me wrong, I love having my children around, I love having my husband taking care of everything for the day. I miss have breakfast in bed made by my children. Now they have their own children making breakfast for them!
Mother's Day has always made me feel inadequate as a mother. I can think of all the mistakes I made while my children were young. the things I should have done. But you know, Mother's Day is not about that.
It's the joy of children doing something special for their moms. It's giving service for someone who gives service all the time for others. It's really not about the moms. It's all about family, and love and service.
Friday I had the chance to go to my grandson's Mother's Day Tea Party. his mom - my daughter, was sick. really sick. so I substituted.
Here are some the women in my family. Two of my daughters, My Mom and her sister. My Mother in law. My sister and 3 of my granddaughters. and 1 of my sister in laws.
All strong, beautiful, courageous women! As for the grands, I know they will be strong women too!
there are a lot of people missing in this photo. due to distance - they live too far away, and those who have passed on.
I am so thankful for each and everyone. the influence they have all been in my life. I am so grateful for my Mom. What a wonderful example of being an elegant lady and her example of a loving mother. I am grateful for my Mother in law. For raising a fine man who loves me. And each of my daughters and my daughter in law! Oh how I love them all....
So today, I won't be dwelling on what ifs. I will be concentrating on all these beautiful people in my my life. How fortunate I am that I can call them family......
hugs and Happy Mother's day.......
