Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there.
I feel extremely blessed to have two delightful sons, a
lovely, kind daughter-in-law, a sweet, kind girlfriend of my younger
son, and two adorable granddaughters in my family.  Mother's
Day is wonderful for me every day of the year.

And to my own mother who's been gone now for six and half
years -- I love you and miss you Mommy.  You are with me
every day in my thoughts.

For all of us mothers worried about this crazy
pandemic, many of you working on the front lines --
my love goes out to you.

This is one of my favourite paintings.  I just love how
the painting captures the moment of playful exuberance
and the mother's obvious love for her baby son.

Have a Happy, Happy Mother's Day.

I love this one, and ALL these "mother" posts! It's clear that the mother in YOU is connecting to the love of these moms and the exhuberence of their children. Beautiful!!! I don't comment nearly enough, but want you to know that I love receiving your emails in my inbox. Always uplifting, always a moment... XOXOXOX
