Happy Mothers Day!

Good morning everybody and Happy Mother's Day to many of you! Marco was so sweet and bought me a plant with beautiful pink and purple flowers in a woven basket and a very sweet card. I totally was not expecting anything at all and just the sight of it had me in tears. Damn hormones!

And although I have a lot to be thankful for this Mother's Day I know this can be a difficult and even heartbreaking holiday for many others so I just wanted to send out this wish to all of you...

For those who have somebody who calls you "Mommy"... I know you appreciate the special gift you've been given. I wish you a day full of love and joy as you celebrate this Mother's Day, you've been given so much to celebrate.

For those of you who became Mothers to only lose your child(ren) unfairly and all too soon, I wish you peace and strength and healing to make it through this day. I can only hope your little angels are there with you somehow today.

For the Mothers who haven't conceived yet, I wish you courage and strength and love and hope to keep on going down the path to motherhood. You may not be called "Mommy" yet but you're still a mother in your heart. I wish this to be the very last Mother's Day that you don't hold your baby in your arms.

To those who don't have or no longer have a Mom to celebrate with today I hope you can find a special memory tucked away inside somewhere that will bring a smile to your face and warmpth to your heart.

No matter which "Mother" category you fit in (and I'm sure many of you fit into several of them) I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!

And of course.. to my Mom, I love you so much Mom! I can't tell you in words how much you mean to me. You have always been my biggest fan and my greatest support and I am so grateful for you. You have always set such a wonderful example for all of us kids and I only hope I can be half the Mom to Sadie that you have been to us. I hope you have a wonderful day and I only wish I could be there to celebrate it with you!
