Happy Mother's Day

I would like to take this entry to honor all the mothers I love.

I love you, Mama, for giving me life, for loving me and nurturing me, and teaching me what it means to be a mom. It is because of you that "mom" is the only title I ever really wanted.

I love you, Mom, for giving birth to your precious son Brian and for raising him up to be the man who would marry me and love me unconditionally for all of my life. I am so thankful too for your friendship and love.

To my dear sister, who is a beautiful example of what a holy, Catholic mother should be. I love to be able to share conversations with you.

To my very closest friends, Robin, Michele and Kris, you are love and support and laughter to me through all those phases and stages of motherhood that we share.

To my newest blogging friends, what beautiful things I learn from you about motherhood. You give me so much support and encouragement and love, even though we've never met. Hope to someday.

Over you all I pray this blessing:

May God,
the source of life,
give you joy in the love, growth,
and holiness of your children.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.

Indeed, that was beautiful. Thank you, Celeste, for being one of the most cherised friends for me as well.

Mothers are the heart. You are awesome.
