Mother's Day 2009

It is risky business to be a mom.

You enter the process not knowing so much. Will my child be healthy and whole? Can I be an example of what I teach...because I do teach by example? Will I outlive my child? Will my child honor in "thou shalt honor thy mother...?" Will my child be happy?

To all the mothers out there: Let today remind us that our job is never over. We will always love our children and always give to them. (It is my greatest joy to give...and my family surely knows that.)

I have an expanded role as I am a grandmother. But, wherever we are in the process of is a day for mothers and grandmothers to take time for a little reflection. And then, in our own ways, we continue.

Truer words were never spoken. I also extend this to all Mothers and Grandmothers "Happy Mothers Day"

I gave my mother a silver cross on a chain. It has hurt her so immensely to watch her grandchildren be victims of the state. I felt that she needed protection.

She loved it. But it would be nice to know if Dylan were alive or not.
