Welcome to our exceedingly messy, beautiful life: "a big world is OUT THERE WAITING for us to live in every day. Outside, you will find, there is love all around you... It's a beautiful life & it's a beautiful world & it's a beautiful time... to be here!"

Mother's Day 2009

"Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own." ~Aristotle

"Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its
mother is feeling chilly." ~Ambrose Bierce
My Mother (Grammie) doing
 what she does best ("Top 5 bests"): 
Serving others and making them feel special.
"A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after." ~Peter De Vries

"You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his
parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back." ~William D. Tammeus

Grammie doing ANOTHER of her "Top 5 bests":
Making memories, perpetuating traditions,
 while also helping her kids (me) who are too overwhelmed to do it all.
"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone

"If nature had arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternatively, there would never be more than three in a family." ~Lawrence Housman

"Setting a good example for your children takes all the fun out of middle age."  ~William Feather

Grammie, Grammie's Mom (Gram), 
Grammie's daughter (me), and Grammie's  granddaughter (Miss M)
"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." ~ Tenneva Jordan

Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to 'jump at de sun.' We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground." ~ Zora Neale Hurston

"The moment a child is born, the
mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." ~ Rajneesh

Grammie also being a TERRIFIC Grandmother.

Thanks Mom!!!
Happy Mother's Day!!!
