Happy Mother's Day to all ladies!

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I am not a biological mother. Over the years, I have had some very sad Mother Days, thinking that I would never be a mother. But we were blessed to be able to adopt a baby boy, 23 years ago. Now he has grown up and left the nest just a few days ago and here again I'm alone, but not too sad, on Mother's Day. I've decided to have a celebration of "mothers" everywhere. My own dear mother passed away six years ago. As I said in a posting yesterday, she was a classic 50's mother. She could do it all & make it look easy. Children loved her, she very rarely lost her temper. She was beautiful inside & out. I stated if I were ever told that I was like my mother that would be the highest compliment that I could be paid.

I was thinking about all the women in the world who, like my mother, are just naturally nurturers. They stay calm, draw in people, are good listeners, and are just usually kind to everyone. They love children, babies, the noises, and all that comes with it. You don't have to be a "biological mother" to do this. I have know women who go out of their way to help others--they can be teachers, neighbors, friends, aunts, whatever. They "mother" relatives--nieces, nephews, mothers, fathers, etc, animals--dogs, cats, etc., neighbors, students, anyone anywhere whom they can help!

This blog is dedicated to all those whom even though they may not be a "biological mother", they have probably been one to someone somewhere along the road of life. They often get forgotten in all the hoopla. So here's my shout out to you,
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!! God Bless each & everyone of you!

    I didn't know my biological mother - I was a loved adopted child, and so very cherished. Mother's Day to me was the best day ever cause I could show her how much she meant to me.

    Your son is lucky to have had you.. Just remember - every other kid is stuck with their Mom - you were chosen..

    Happy Mother's Day
