Happy Mother's Day!

For all you moms out there, I hope you have a lovely day doing whatever it is you enjoy doing!

My family is planning to do some painting in our house today.  I am looking forward to spending a lovely day with the people that I love most. I hope that you all get to do the same.

My own mom passed away in September 2007. I miss her so very, very much, but I know she is with me in spirit: So wherever you are mom - Happy Mothers Day and I will always love you!

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." - Washington Irving

"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her." - George Washington

"That best academy, a mother's knee." - James Russell Lowell
