This Sunday is Mother's Day, a time I'm sure we will all think of our moms and reflect on the past. I think it's the most wonderful job in the world and the most rewarding. My mom is still with us and for that I am very thankful, she had a stroke in 2001 and through sheer determination is walking with the aid of a walker and doing quite well. My maternal grandmother is also still with us, and will be celebrating her 100th. birthday this August. Last year in May we lost my husband's mother at the age of '90', although a good age, we miss her. My daughter has a wonderful mother-in-law and our thoughts will especially be with her this Mother's Day and to Margie & Esther, Happy Mother's Day.
I would have to say......the best mom I know is Samantha. She & Sadie are already best friends. Samantha is back to work full time, and still manages to create, cook, read, knit.....the list goes on but first and foremost she's a great mom.
The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.

Happy Mother's Day, Samantha,
Love mom. xoxoxoxo
