A Tribute to Mom


I wanted to get this one out here because I want to hear what you're doing for MOM this weekend...spill it! I've seen some pretty COOL stuff out here in the blogdom. I was only going to do a HobbyLobby gift certificate but I'm feeling a bit underwhelmed by the whole thing.

It's almost Mother's Day. A time to recognize all the things she did and DOES for us. A time to reflect on who she is and was. A time to remember her, if she has left her earthly post. Most of all it's a time to thank her...so THANK YOU mom not only for giving birth to me, but for all the days since then.

I did enter a "contest" at Mom 2 Mom Connection and while I didn't even get an honorable mention...this is my submission, my gift of words to mom...I may even print it out for her!

I sent my mom a card, but I'm going to visit her in a few weeks when she has surgery and wait on her hand and foot. because she deserves it.

That was lovely!!! I wish I cold write like that. I was to intimidated to enter the contest ... I couldn't even begin to write what I felt about my mom ... so many emotions -- where do you start?

You did a great job!

That, my friend, was so sweet...

How awesome it is that you have a mom to write about in that way.

I have my Grammy. My mom, well, she is in her own never-never-land.

My Grams is my un-official mom and I adore her.
