Happy Mother's Day to Everyone Everywhere

This is my precious niece, Lola Tolise....isn't she amazing?   This is Taylor's first Mother's Day....so HAPPY MOTHERS DAY Girl....ya sure do have to work your fanny off just to get a Mother's Day card don't ya?  Soon you'll be getting macaroni necklaces and hand drawn pictures that you will treasure more than gold all of your life. 


Me with two of my babies, I'm fortunate enough to have 8 babies! 

Yep 8, count em: Krista, Megan, Maddy, Taylor, Aaron, Zach, Molly and Jake!  The first three were brought by Northwest Airlines( 11,13 & 15 years old at the time) Taylor came American Airlines when she was 15, Aaron and Zach were delivered by the Stork and Molly and Jake (8 weeks) came by Toyota van!  (Am I supposed count son-in-laws too?  If so, I have two of those as well...yikes....no wonder I'm feeling so darn old and my eyesight is going!!!)

If you are reading this, then you were once a baby too and whom ever has contributed to all your fine qualities and has nurtured your soul....I wish them a Happy Day!

In a previous life I was a Psychologist so I know that Mother's Day and all holidays really can be very different for everyone.  Many people did not have the Mother's they needed when they were going up so Mother's Day can be very painful and bring about sadness and anger....it's not all about cards and flowers for them.  No matter who your Mother is or was....I pray for you that you cherish all the gifts you received from that person and I thank them for your life.....that is all some Mommy's can give and what a gift it was and is!

It took me until I was 35 years old to realize the best gift my father ever gave me was his absence.....what a treasured awareness.....his gift was his absence from my daily life....it was absolutely best for me although I had not idea what a gift it was until I was 35 years old.  This awareness taught me to look at gifts in many different lights and to be grateful for all of them.

If you had the Mother that you needed....party naked all day long!!!!!  That is absolutely wonderful and we are all thrilled for you.  Everyone else, party naked too and be the mother that you needed to yourself today....take only the best care of yourself this and every day!

My Mother's Day wish for everyone today is Gratitude....it is a pure joy that radiates peace and beauty....exactly what a nurturing Mother would radiate :)

Smiles,
Kelly

I was a lucky one to have a mom who was everything a mom should be and a wonderful stepfather. Hope you too have a wonderful Mother's Day. Sounds like you are a wonderful mom to eight. I have half that many and I am proud at what great adults they have become.

Happy Mother's Day to you Kelly. It looks like you have a wonderful family to fill your life. I lost my own Mom a long time ago, and days like this can be hard. But I am very GRATEFUL that God gave me other women in my life to fill in the gap. Have a great day!

A psychologist, huh? And 8 kiddos? Wow! That is an interesting thing about how you look at your father's absence. I'm going to try to see if that fits for me. I'd never thought of it that way.

Well, I wasn't exactly partying naked but I was enjoying myself yesterday so I didn't read this until the day after. Well said. And thanks for including all mother-child relationships, not just the Hallmark card variety.
