Short and Sweet … and Happy

Friday, May 6, 2011

To say that I am happy being a mother is an understatement.

It’s a community, a club, of which I’m so proud to be a member. But let’s be honest, it’s hard work this role of loving leader—oh, yes, that is what you are, woman. It takes forethought and determination and kindness and nerve and confidence and calm and balance and strength and oceans full of patience and even more love to be a mother. Yet here we all are, doing it … doing our best. Be proud of that.

So today, I want to take a moment to wish all my comrades, my fellow Mamas—of all variations—a delightful, joyously sweet and happy Mother’s Day this weekend.

    Yes, being a mom is wonderful, the joy, the work–the whole experience is special and worth every bit of one’s effort. then to watch your children become parents and being promoted to a grandparent is even more joyful, a profound delight. You are a wonderful mother, in all areas–it’s been a joy watching the most precious, charming child on the planet unfold under your love and leadership.Hey, and she’s a great partner to her wonderful husband; and she runs, she bakes, and she writes! A very happy “Mommer’s day” to you. Jan
