Note: This blog was written on Saturday, May 12, 2018. In my haste to get it out, I failed to press the ‘Publish’ button. I was out of town and was not able to get it out. So, I send it now with belated Happy Mother’s Day wishes. Though late, the wishes are still heartfelt for mother’s everywhere.
Motherhood. Not the popular, most celebrated occupation; pay is not great; hours are long, and many times lonely; no gossip magazines producing glamorous photos of it; or waiting in line to interview those working diligently in this occupation. Yes, it seems to be a rather unpopular profession. It takes guts to be a mother.
Yet for those that want to embrace it to the fullest, it is an occupation of joy, riches, and times never to be had again. Life is ephemeral. Childhood is too. It is an exciting way to go into a time one will never see. That is through our children. So as you celebrate being a mommy or grandmother today, enjoy! Give this not-so-popular profession a thank you for all it has offered to you through your momma and to all it offers to your children because of you!
Happy Mother’s Day! Here are flowers from our farm sent specially for YOU! Happy Mother’s Day!!

This was absolutely beautiful! I am so glad I got to see it!
I see the rhododendrons… I hope mine are in bloom when we arrive at the LakeHouse tomorrow! (Our summer home)
Thank you so much, Nancy. I know your rhododendrons are lovely too! 🙂
Happy Mothers Day to all moms!!
