Happy Mother's Day

For my Mother-



and To my friends...
Lux, Kate, Susan, Foam, Chesca, Roxanne, Malinda, Leelee, Barbara, and Nea- who are mothers, I wish you a beautiful day- full of blessing and peace-

Some quotes worth repeating~

:) :) :) :) :)

You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. ~William D. Tammeus

My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune. ~Graycie Harmon

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers. ~Jewish Proverb



When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty


Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. ~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in A Little Spoonful of Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul

"Love, The key that unlocks the bars of impossibility."

I really like the Loren comment because I have witnessed its truth in so many women.

Happy Mother's Day my dear friend...I hope you are having fun right now...I was thinking of you just a moment ago coz' the sun is searing here...and I kinda' told me'self..I suuure hope she lathered on a thick swab of suntan lotion over there...hee!hee!

You know...there are still a lot of things I want to be in this life I live...but even if they all come cme true..being a mother still tops of the list of things I've accomplished to do.

have a blast!! :>>

a favourite picture of mine

thanx for this ... hope you enjoyed your day and your weekend ...

Nea said...

The Merry Go Round Quote made me really smile, it is so true.........I don't know how many times I have done that very same thing when the kids were small, waved each and everytime they went by, as if to say, I am here, and I will always be here for you.....and I will always acknowledge you....Mother's need to be a constant in a child's life I guess, that is about the best thing we can do for them...is always be there.

Happy Mother's Day!
You should have come by. We had prime rib, twice-baked potatoes, artichoke hearts, champagne and strawberries with chocolate.
Three mothers in attendance.

Seven-
The Loren quote was the one that rang the truest note in my heart~

Leelee-
My M-Day was on Saturday- and it was lovely...thank you :)

Foam-
I am happy to tell you- I am still fair! :P I used SPF 15 and 20- and sat under an umbrella for several hours :)

Gawpo...thank you darlin'- I owe you a note. I'll get to that soon :)

Bar 29- It was so much fun to look these up :) Hope your day was sweet too :)

Luxie-
So beautifully said...being mom is just about the most important thing I am. As well as being "Aunt Nonna" :)

Mayden's Voyage said...

Roxanne-
Beautiful photo... Mom seems to be holding on the present- daughter is thinking about the future :) As it should be I think-
Hope you had a lovely day :)

Nea-
Yes...that quote made me instantly laugh because most of us do that. Even the guys who end up on TV at a sporting event..."HEY MOM!!!"-
it's so sweet :)

Bone- thanks. Hope you got to spend some time with your mom. I know she is a special lady- because look at who her son is!
:)

Grunt- Hugs friend and Thank you! Wish you could come to Florida at the end of the month...I smell a blog meet!!!
