Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Everybody,

Happy Mother's Day to you and your moms today.

Last night we had Cary's mom Darlene, brother Larry, his girlfriend Karla and her son Cody over for a yummy dinner.  It was a lot of fun. 

This morning I am driving to Eugene to spend time with my peeps and Cary is going to spend a special day with Darlene. 

How will you be spending your Mother's Day this year?  However you do, I hope that it will be wonderful.

I borrowed the picture (and doctored it up a bit) and the poem below from my favorite little book, "Celebrations" c. 1977.

by Carolyn Davies


The gray-haired mother, whose successful sons and happy daughters bring flowers and love -- 

The young girl-wife, with her first baby in her arms -- 

The mother of seven, struggling against poverty and fear and want, but keeping the six patched and mended and in school, and the baby clean -- 

The mother in the shack on the prairie, in the homestead on the range, in the mountains far from church or neighbors, who becomes church and neighbors and civilization to her children -- 

The average mother of the the average family, with the average amount of bills and worries over Johnny's measles and Mary's beaus -- 


May Providence strengthen them to go on with high hearts for another year -- when we will again bear loving gifts of white carnations or, if far from them, send our grateful telegram. 

Mothers!  God bless them. 

The Delineator, 1925

It sounds like you have a good day planned. Today is my older daughter's birthday too. She lives in Savannah, but she is visiting us this week at Smith Mountain Lake iin Virginia, so it's a double celebration for us.
