Mother's Day 2012
Mothers are all around. I run into mothers throughout my day. I look forward to this time of year dedicated to mothers and the ever so important work that mothers accomplish minute by minute. I wrote about my mother here and here last year.
What I would give to be as patient and kind my mother was with us. I know it wasn't easy and support that knowledge now with two young children close in age. I can't imagine having 7 kids in about 10 years. I am grateful to come from such a large family and the sacrifices, little and big, that my mother made for me.
Check out Nie. She ran a mother's day contest that I failed to read about until after the due date. The stories that were submitted and won were so inspirational. Check them out here.
