Happy Mother's Day

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and surrogate moms out there! For Mother's Day this year, I have a sick daughter and a sick husband! I think theirs is the gift of germs, but I'm truly hoping they don't share...

I was truly blessed the day I had my daughter, and often feel like I'm not the best mom in the world to her, but I do my best.

And I admit, I count these "kids" in as mine as well:

But mostly today, I'm missing my own mom, who's living far, far away:

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!!!


You Are Adventurous

You are quite adventurous and brave, but you are also reasonable about it. You don't have to be on an adventure 24/7.

You have good judgment and balance. You like to try new and exciting things, but you also pay attention to risk.

You're not the type of person who would throw your life away just to go on a new trip or have a new romantic partner.

You like your thrills in small, safe doses. You are gutsy in all aspects of your life from career to relationships.

That's pretty close to right... I do tend to straddle the fence between adventurous and safe (with a slight leaning toward the safe side).

Sorry your daughter and husband are ill. I hope you don't get it. We are all hoping that we don't get what our daughter Sara has had this weekend. We made it thru the winter and were never sick.

I think you're a fantastic mom. Your daughter's blessed to have you for a mom!
