An Away Mother's Day

Grant me a moment to be a tad pitiful...Ben's away (work-travel), I'm not with my Mom (geography), and I no longer have living Grandmothers. This Mother's Day is saved only by the person who has granted me permission to share in the wealth of emotion we call being a Mommy. (Little address book Avery's school made as Mother's Day gifts - apparently, Avery was not ready for her close-up!)
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, and all Mommies!

Happy Mothers Day!! My mom and grandmothers are all gone, so I understand your loneliness at this time. Some of my children live far away, but I have their loving memories, wishes and thoughts. I so appreciate that. I hope your day is a blessed one. Hugs, Marty

Happy belated Mother's Day! Some years I try and laugh it off as another event Hallmark invented to make sales! But deep down, we want hear how great of a job we do everyday as a mother. And also, tell our mothers how deeply we love and appreciate them.
