Mother's Day-a day to celebrate Mother's. Simple, right? I celebrate my Mother, Mother-in-Law but also my daughters for without them, I wouldn't be a mother and more importantly, I want them to grow up into women that are wonderful Mother's. So, beginning way back when Anna was a little tot, I bought her a Mother's Day gift-a book and wrote and inscription on the inside font cover. I wish I could say I have been faithful and done so every year--it hasn't been every year but several--I have purchased books for all three and written to them. My thought is one day, when they are Mother's they will hold their children and read these books to them. They will read the inscription and it will bring back memories of a childhood and a Mother who truly was crazy blessed and loved every moment she was on duty!!
I would encourage you if you still have children at home to go buy a book, write a few words, share a memory and express your love for them and give it to them this Mother's Day. Books have become a special treasure for our girls. Make sure every time you give them a special book take that minute to write inside of it what the occasion is, it will become a treasured keepsake! (ssshhhh...don't tell Anna but this picture is the book that is on it's way to her for Mother's Day 2013 because she is my hand holder!! Because darlin' Angel girl, no matter how far away you are I will always hold you in my heart!!) If you scroll down to the bottom, you'll find the video, you should be able to view on mobile devices, YouTube wouldn't allow it on mobile. Just some random pictures of my three Angel girls to the song "Me" by Plumb!
|I wouldn't trade your love for all the candy|
in this great big world
I feel so crazy blessed and oh so lucky
To be the place you go
when you need to feel safe..
When you need a kiss
