Even though I’m a mother myself, I’ve always knows Mother’s Day to be focused around my mother and typically include the four F’s of Mother’s Day: faith, family, food and flowers. This Mother’s Day, however, will be a little different. My mom is on vacation and living up her retirement, rightfully so, but she won’t be around for actual Mother’s Day. My brother and I…Continue

Mother’s Day is May 12th, that is a week from this Sunday. There are likely to be lots of articles to suggest ways to honor your mom or help your children honor their mom. I would like to take a different approach and speak to moms directly. Give yourself permission to pat yourself on the back and to take a break. Parenting is both the toughest and most rewarding job in the world. This is a good time to remind moms (fathers too) that you have to fill your own bucket before…Continue

What have I done?
I know my 11-year-old son is a capable child. He likes to help his dad out at the store and recently our neighbors hired him to look after their cats while they are away on vacation. He does well in school, is a brown belt in karate, loves to play everything from "Bach Minuet in G Major" to "Moves Likes Jagger" on the piano, puts his dirty clothes in the hamper (mostly), keeps his room fairly neat, is always up and dressed for school on time, is helpful,…Continue

After celebrating Mother's Day this past weekend, I'm not afraid to toot my own horn and say that my kids are huge fans of their mama. In fact, my poor husband is often shoved to the side when it comes to which parent they prefer. And as hunky dory as this all may sound in theory, it isn't always sunshine and roses.
For example, I could be all the way…Continue

There is a piece of me that is missing. Anyone who has lost their mom can identify with the feeling.
Mother's Day is always a day that stirs up the emotions even more because of her absence. I do have a diversion because I am a mom. My kids and husband do sweet things for me during the day to…Continue

My Mother's Day this year was really wonderful, from beginning to end. Even when I decided I would do the anti-Mother's Day thing and force my husband to join me in cleaning our downstairs from top to bottom at 8:30 at night; isn't Mother's Day all about not cleaning? Well, since I never clean, I guess I just thought Mother's Day must be about Opposites Day or something. JDubbs was a good sport about it, though, even if it was…

Yesterday was Mother’s Day, a day filled with homemade cards, a bouquet of pink and yellow flowers, and beef brisket. It was a beautiful and unseasonably warm day spent with my family and my mother.Continue

If not for the photographs, I might have a hard time believing they ever existed.

button eyes of a Raggedy Andy doll. The placid baby with the yellow
ringlets and the high piping voice. The sturdy toddler with the…Continue

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…Continue

Forget the time old idea of Mom and apple pie… today’s mother, as you surely know, is not only bringing home the bacon and frying it up in a pan, but also volunteering for the school carnival committee and getting to the gym 3 afternoons a week. She is a machine that can juggle separate schedules, knows your shoe size and together…Continue

I'm sure that when many of us think of Mother's Day thoughts of personalized gifts for mom and Mother's Day cards fill our heads. And some of us are even thinking of all the party invitations to Mother's Day related events and dinners that we've received. Yes, believe it or not Mother's Day is a huge deal!! Honestly, I never knew how truly big Mother's Day was until I became a mom myself.
And no it wasn't because of the gifts, the cards or all the kind words I received from husband,…Continue
