Mother's Day has become a day that I absolutely love. I remember what it was like to be sad on this day as I longed to be a mother, but worked to focus on the wonderful mother who raised me. Now, I just adore the celebration of all that mom's do in our lives - Mothers really do rule the world, even when things aren't ideal.
|I will save these handmade cards forever!|
The children gave me thoughtful notes, love coupons and pampering items. I am thankful their dad supported them in acknowledging their mom. These original thoughts from my children are treasures to keep for all time.
I was able to see my stepdaughters, too. I strive to honor their bond with their own Mother, but I really appreciate that they include me in their motherhood circle. I love the bright, thoughtful flowers that I was given!

I like to imagine us meeting for coffee when he is all grown.
"Mother's Day" has passed for a year, but these ladies are a part of my daily life and it reminds me of the influence I will have for generations to come.
Mother's Day comes and goes, and the investments of today often don't return to us for many years to come. Count the cost and enjoy the privilege that you possess as an influencer in the generations to come.
