Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone
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
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
Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. ~Ambrose Bierce
I was sidetracked earlier in the week by a bug that made us all sick, so I am late in getting this up, but I wanted to post it anyway. Better late then never!
I wanted to have a giveaway in honor of Mother's Day. To say thank you to all of the women who are mothers to us for all they have done and all they continue to do. This is my second Mother's Day without my precious mama, but as I have said here before, I know that she is at peace, and am thankful to God every day for that. I miss her terribly, but want to celebrate her life and her love for me at this special time of year.
In honor of my mother, an avid gardener, photographer and nature-lover, my children and I are planting flowers in our yard. I am thrilled that my children share a love of growing things - it must be genetic!
To enter, please leave a comment here on how you celebrate and honor your mother, or anyone who is like a mother to you. I am excited to hear about your celebrations, memories and tributes. Share your stories with us!
I will draw the winner's name out of a hat on May 31st! And the winner will receive a 5x7 print of the poppy photo above. Be sure to leave me a way to get in touch with you!
Thank you for stopping by ! I look forward to hearing your stories!
Happy Mother's Day!
Take care, allie
