Mother's Day

Real Mothers don't eat quiche;

They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils

Are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors,

Filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough

Doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what

The vacuum just sucked up...

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'

And get their answer when a little

Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth

Is not measured by height or years or grade...

It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.....

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she
Shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

I want to thank my husband and children for making my Mother's Day wonderful. They went all out and I appreciate it more than they could ever know. I love them very much and am so glad that I am their wife and mother.

I also want to wish my Mom wonderful Mother's Day. She is more than my Mother, she is my friend. I am so thankful for her relationship with my Sister and I. She is more important in our lives that she realizes. Happy Mother's Day Mom!

I'm so glad I am your mom too. You are a wonderful example to me in so many things, especially the way you love and serve your family (even though you don't alway feel appreciated).
I am glad your family came through for you today, you deserve it.

Love Ya!
