Happy Mother's Day!

This post is dedicated to all you beautiful children out there (even the adult ones)!

We mothers tend to forget that we wouldn't be celebrating this day if it wasn't for the miraculous beings that we created. My wish for all of you is that you have (or had) a mother that you are grateful for. Someone who nurtured, guided, and LOVED you enough to make you the person you are today.

Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. My mother-in-law is the perfect example of this. If you are one of those unfortunates (sure hope it isn't my kids) whose mother spawned them and moved on with her life; TRY to forgive her so YOU can move on with your life. THEN make it your mission to make your children's lives better. Become your child's "soft place to fall". Make your home a safe haven that your children can escape to when the pressures of this crazy world are too much for them.

For those of you without children; consider mentoring a lonely child or struggling mother. So many "bad" mothers out there want to do better. They came from totally dysfunctional families and don't have a clue how to raise their children in a loving environment.

The only way we can change this world is ONE PERSON AT A TIME!

That is such excellent, excellent advice. Happy Mother's Day to YOU, from a complete stranger who admires you nonetheless.

"Soft place to fall"... Do you watch Dr. Phil??

COOL. But I don't think I'm a miraculous person...

The miracle part was you coming out with all your parts in the right place and an inquiring mind.
Now you're just plain awesome and we're proud of you!! LOVE YOU!!

SME: one day I hope you come to feel like you are a miracle, because I have come to see myself as one, and it is a LOVELY feeling. It is a POWERFUL feeling.
