Happy Mothers' Day...

While I have not gotten into the habit of blogging, I do genuinely enjoy the opportunity to share thoughts with the few that read them concurrently, as well as recording them for future reference. Since today is mothers' day, I wish to dedicate this post to the mothers in my life (I have several-indeed a blessing to me!), especially one of whom is a faithful reader. You know who you are, and I hope you know how special you are to the children to whom you gave life and endless love and to those you have adopted into your heart throughout the years. It is for you specifically I make the /gallant/ effort to post some thoughts today...

Although I do not have children of my own I am gaining a greater appreciation for ALL the daughters of Eve, the mother of all of us living on Earth. Eve was designated as that mother prior to her having a child of her own, so that indicates to me that all of her daughters-at least potentially-have something of a mother within them before they (we) ever become mothers to their (our) own children. I have been blessed with opportunities to interact with many children in my life so far to whom I will always feel attached to in a special way even though they belong to another mother. They will always be *mine* in a special way.

Additionally, once a mother, always a mother...right? I hear a mother's job is never done, and I don't see any evidence to the contrary!

To all reading this...may your burdens be lightened with the knowledge and hope that the best is yet to come, and that you give life and love in so many, indeed countless ways.

So, in tribute to all the daughters of Eve I offer a warm and heartfelt HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY!!
