Mother’s Day, 2018

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, American writer

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his. ~Oscar Wilde, Irish poet

Happy Mother’s Day! Remember, even if you don’t have children, you’re probably mothering something, whether it’s a pet, a garden, or even a novel. Thanks so much for accompanying me on my writer’s path!

    What a BEAUTIFUL post! Love both the quotes.

    I’ve been thinking about my mother(s) this past week; realizing how blessed I was to have two caring, nurturing, supportive and loving women in my life who were my mother’s. Their influence on me will be a part of my life forever.

    Have a WONDERFUL day, my friend!

    • Ron, you’re blessed to have had TWO moms who loved you so thoroughly! Moms don’t have an easy job. Sometimes kids can say and do very unloveable things, all unthinkingly, of course. You weren’t that type of kid, I’ll bet, so your moms had an easier time of it!

      Hope your Sunday was delightful. I spent most of mine planting flowers and such — hot, humid work, but the results are worthwhile. Enjoy your work week! xo

  2. Happy Mother’s Day! My card from Cole – “Dear Mom, You raised a good kid (if I do say so myself)” :-D. He doesn’t have to… Being a Mom is such a great gig and despite the fact the years go fast they just get better and better —my wish for all new Moms.
    Love the pink roses on that cake…I would ask for a piece with a rose! ♥~

    • Aw, you’ve just gotta love Cole’s sense of humor!! Domer sent me a card that brought tears because of its sweetness. I have to congratulate myself that my lesson took — if a card can bring a little tear, you’ve accomplished your goal as sender!

      I like pink roses, too … whether on cakes or in the yard. Since we don’t have any in the yard, I’d be glad to have some on a cake (and I’m sure the bakers removed ALL the calories before selling it, right?!) Hope your Mom’s Day was splendid!

    • You’re right!! Dallas thinks so anyway. Doesn’t this cake look yummy? I wish I had all my blogging buddies here so they could help me eat it (and share the calories, too, hee hee!!)

  3. Did you have a nice Mother’s Day? I was in Chicago visit my daughter one last time. She’s moving to California this summer! I don’t know about her but I’m going to miss visiting Chicago in the spring. Sigh.

    Hope you and Domer and Dallas had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

    • I trust your daughter found a better job! It’s hard having kids clear across the country, and I know you’ll be glad to have her closer. I’m fortunate Domer is just a few hours away! He couldn’t come home for Mom’s Day, but I’ll see him soon.
