Mother’s Day is the special day once a year to celebrate your first best friend and the person you always turn to when you need advice.  I am blessed to have had a wonderful Mom, and although she is no longer here, she is always in my heart.

I am also blessed to be the mother of two wonderful young women, who surprise me on the daily with their caring hearts, their wisdom, their perseverance, their kindness, and their beauty! {and then there are my little people, I could write a whole book about how I adore and cherish them!}



Mother’s Day is also a marvelous time to show your love for all the other women you adore, your daughters, granddaughters, friends, aunts, grandmothers, the list could go on!

I hope you celebrate your Mom, or are celebrated as a Mom on Mother’s Day. Like I just told my kids the other day: ” No one is ever going to love you as much as your Mama!”


I found a few quotes I love that I wanted to share with all of you. I hope they make you smile as they did me.




A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.

Cardinal Mermillod




The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.

Elaine Heffner



Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.

William Makepeace Thackery



Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.

Marion C. Garretty



In the end, mothers are always right. No one else tells the truth.

Randy Susan Meyers



Happy Mother’s Day, dearest friends! I hope your day is beautiful, and that your heart is happy.
