To the most amazing, creative, supportive group of mom's! Thank you for your encouragement and friendship, Have a wonderful Mother's Day! And to my mommy friends for who this is a more difficult day here's a beautiful little poem I read:

If Roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

Oh, BC, you made me cry as I just responded to a similar poem on Facebook for my wonderful sister-in-law who left much too soon and my own mom who died just before she became a Grandmother. I always remind my kids that while we have a wonderful Mother's Day it is a very hard day for many people.

My younger daughter and I need some bonding time so I'm taking her to Starbuck's which I have never done although she has gone a few times with others. Last night, she had a nightmare and wanted me to stay with her which to me, was a beautiful start to Mother's Day. Those moments and helping my other daughter manage her allergies are truly what being a mother is to me.

Today I also wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of the women who treat my children as their own. And to those who wanted to be or hope to be a Mother one day.

Had to share Kyle Dine's Mother's day tribute again, I love this.

Part of my mother's day gift from my kids was a list of things they love about me and everyone here will appreciate this one:

You are amazing with my allergies and I do complain sometimes, but I appreciate all your work.

As much as I loved the other comments it was that one that really choked me up.
