Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day!

Ahhh Mothers Day… an emotional day for me to write about.  It is a day where we sincerely look at all the mothers in our lives and we really truly wish them a Happy Mothers Day.  It’s almost as if we exchange a much larger sentiment than those three short words.  As I look at the moms I hold so near and dear I am really saying this:  I am so proud to parent in your footsteps and along side of you.  I know what you do each day, what you give, and how you love.  I know your dedication, your ability to persevere, and the pride you carry around inside of you each and every day.  I know how you worry, how you show your concern, how you get frustrated and how you make mistakes.  All in the name of being a mother… you wear a thousand hats, you’ve made a million meals, and I am sure on certain days you fit in 25 hours of work in the 24 hours you have been given.  So to all my Mamma’s on mothers day… When I wish you a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY… I am really saying – You are made of titanium and thank goodness I can parent in front of you, beside you and behind you – for some of you have paved my way, some of you hold me up, some of you walk along side of me and all of you inspire me!!

The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
