Motherhood is many things. To me it is one of my greatest blessings. Being a mom is the thing I most wanted to accomplish in this lifetime. Thank you Shane, Chad and Malcolm for all the good times, great memories and even for the difficulties and challenges.
One of the greatest joys of motherhood, for me, were all the trips and outings.
And of course the baseball games!
Past Mothers Days were spent surrounded by children, grandchildren, and extended family members.
Until last year my mother was with me to celebrate Mothers Day. I still miss her a lot.
Now, her ashes are in the ocean that she so loved. Her spirit is always with me.
And in the hearts and minds of her beloved grand and great grand children and all the people who loved her.
Although far from my children and grandchildren this Mothers Day, I hope they are inspired by the life I live. Inspired to take risks, follow their dreams and enjoy their lives to the fullest.
I have known many wonderful mothers. It’s not just about giving birth.
Whatever your experience of motherhood I wish you the happiest of Mothers Days.
