Mother's Day.

Chip's mom and my kids' grandma Karen.
My mom, Genie, and her mom and my grandma, Shirley.
Thanks to the women pictured here and to Teagan, who helped me realize how much I LOVE to be a mom, this day is a day to be celebrated. Happy Mother's Day to my mom and Chip's Mom, and all of our grandmas: Shirley, Rose and Grandma Dot.
To my sisters, Jacque and Steph, and to all my extended family of Moms, Happy Mother's Day. To all my favorite Mom's who I also call friends, and to all of you Nitty.Gritty. readers who are moms, Happy Mother's Day too!
Here's celebrating all the hard work, all the creative ideas, all the countless hours of cleaning and chauffering and reading stories and cooking and creating fun, memories from holidays to the everyday's to doodling on the shower doors just to see smiles...I say celebrate it in a special way today.

I have been thinking alot about you lately....and the Coble family....they live 5 minutes away from me and there are pink & blue ribbons everywhere in their memory...I pray for that mom & dads to have the faith, strength and forgiveness that you & Chip have...
Happy Mother's Day friend..and special thoughts to you and blessings & prayers for your little angel up above and hugs and kisses to the little kid-lets that invade your beautiful life with love!

I'll post a comment here instead of in the 120 above. Wow! Talk about "Man on the Hall!" The dorm just quadrupled in size! Looks like your five male readers will feel more out of place then ever. Just kidding. =) Congratulations on the new SIS thing. I knew you were destined for something like this.
Keep everything in perspective.
I know you will.
