Happy Mother's Day!

Just wanted to send out a 'Happy Mother's Day' to all the ladies out there who have children (whether children on earth or children in heaven). Also, wanted to send my thoughts out to those who may find this day difficult...maybe the loss of a child or the loss of your Mom.

For me, this day is mixed. I still feel it is mostly about MY Mom and my mom has been gone for 11 years now. So, that makes me sad. But my boys are getting older and I love the cards they make for me and the things they write in them are too funny. So, that makes me happy. But my girls are in heaven. So, that makes me sad. And thus, you see, my mixed feelings. It does seem, as the years pass it becomes more happy feelings and less sad feelings. So that is good.

Happy Mothers Day to you too Jane! I have the same emotions as you in some ways. My mom has been gone over 20 years and I am feeling much more like mother's day is about me.... I always think of her, but it is less bitter sweet. May you get there too! Hugs

Darling Jane,

I thought of you, Jamie and all us Mums who have the day marred in some way.

Mine was surprising good this year, after the widdle hissy I had earlier in the week.
