To all the Moms out there (with heart-felt thanks to mine and Dave’s), may your day be fragrant and full of flowers!
These quotes are especially for you all:
“If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.” – Attributed to Claudia Ghandi
“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone
And two more to take the pressure off . . .
“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one” – Jill Churchill
“Your responsibility as a parent is not as great as you might imagine. You need not supply the world with the next conqueror of disease or major motion-picture star. If your child simply grows up to be someone who does not use the word “collectible” as a noun, you can consider yourself an unqualified success.” – Fran Lebowitz, “Parental Guidance,” Social Studies, 1981
Although I’m not a mother in the full sense of the word, I love my stepchildren dearly – sincere thanks to them for the countless blessings they bestow on my life 🙂
Last but not least, because the four-legged members of our family matter too, here’s a special mention for the youngest, who turns 1 today: “Happy birthday, Quest, you handsome hound!”
Bones are on the way, boy 😀
