Happy Mother's Day

To ALL of my Friends that are:
Mothers, Want To Be Mothers or are Amazing Women & Help To Mother Others
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!I am going to relate a story that my mom told me...and I am not sure how accurate I am in telling it...but you will get the jest of the story.

When my mom was young and growing up in Texas her family was very poor. They were living under a train trestle at the time. An Armadillo wondering in and she remembered chasing it until they had caught it and fixed it for dinner.

She kept an small ceramic armadillo in her house to remind her of where she had been in life.

Last year for Christmas, I sent each of my siblings a "Beasties" Armadillo ...

It is just a simple reminder to us of the amazing mom we were blessed with. Mother's day have been difficult for me after my mom passed away... But, a couple of years ago...I realized that I was a mom and if I was being sad and grumpy on Mother's Day what kind of memory was that for my children that wanted to make the day special for me?

So...HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL OF US!

What a great idea to get those armadillos for your siblings. I was having kind of a grumpy Mother's Day, but I'm trying to get over it. :)

Happy Mother's Day!
She used to say it is easy to be grateful for what you have when you remember what it is like to have nothing.
