Happy "Smothers" Day


For all you Moms out there - Happy Mother's Day!! If you are fortunate enough to still have your Mother like I am, please be sure and tell her you love her. It's important every day, but especially today!

For my Mom - Happy Mother's Day - I love you very much!! This painting I made for you, Mom, after you saw some of the others that I had done and really liked them, I decided to paint you one based on some of the things I heard you say you liked about the other ones. I didn't realize until I uploaded it that the picture looks a little blown out, but the actual painting is full of rich color!

This is the first year that I was not greeted with "Happy Smother's Day!" from my girls. Now that they are both 5 and 6, they said it correctly this morning, and I have to admit, it made me a little sad. Although I am enjoying watching them grow and mature every day, little things like this remind me just exactly how fast they are growing. I didn't realize how I would get that little twinge of sadness when they both said "Happy Mother's Day!" and not "Happy Smother's Day!" - they are growing just way to fast. It still gives me a warm fuzzy feeling just thinking about them saying it either way, though.

To you Mom - once again, I love you and thank you for all that you do. Through every thing the last few years with my health, and just becoming a Mom myself, I couldn't have done it without you. You give yourself 100% without ever asking for anything in return. To me, that is the epitome of what a Mother is and should be. All those times you would give everything to us and not anything for yourself, I never could understand that. Now that I am a Mom, I understand fully and it makes me appreciate what you did and continue to do even more now than ever. Thank you.
