Happy Mother's Day, whether you are 'celebrating' or not, believe in the commercialism or just enjoy family... here's to the happiest day of all.

D Dennison and her Mommy

Mother's Day is a day for moms, a day to take a deep breath and thank the woman who wiped our bottoms, grounded us, took care of us when we were sick and tried to give us sound advice about the world.

We may have been upset with her and couldn't wait to move out or we may have dreaded the day when we would have to go out on our own, either way, its a great day to pause and be thankful for who she was in our lives as we grew into who we are today.

She may still be in your life, you may be estranged, or she may have passed on. Reflect today on all of the good that there is and was and fill your day with love, hope, and happiness.

I am thankful for my mom and am one who has long since said goodbye. I know that she is always near as I see the signs of her forever love in my daily routines. The love she gave to me while in this world has not been forgotten and has helped me become and remain the person, mom, wife and friend I am today.

Happy Mother's Day!
