Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!
Real mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the bathtub.
Real mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens, and happy kids.
Real mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real mothers sometimes ask, "Why me?" and get their answer when a little voice says,"Because I love you best."
Real mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade... it is marked by the progression of Mama to Mom to Mother...

4 years of age~ My mommy can do anything!
8 years of age~ My mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 years of age~ My mother doesn't really know quite everything.
16 years of age~ Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 years of age~ That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 years of age~ Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 years of age~ Before we decide, let's get mom's opinion.
45 years of age~ Wonder what mom would have thought about it?
65 years of age~ Wish I could talk it over with mom.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, mother-in-law, Maggie, and all my girlfriends who are moms!
You are terrific women and I am truly grateful to have you in my life!
