Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! Isn't it amazing how something so broad (as having a baby) can give us all a common bond to connect us? I can meet a mom in a grocery store, a bank, a doctor's office and we'll immediately have something to talk about, no matter how old her children are.

So, today, celebrate the moms in your life be it your own mom, your sister, your grandma, or your friends. Let me tell you, it is HARD work to have a piece of your heart walking outside of your body. I'll leave you with this piece of writing that since I've had children has touched me.

The child asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to Earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Your angel will be waiting for you and take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but smile and sing to be happy."
God said, "Your angel will sing for your and also will smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
"Your angel will place your hands together and teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?"
"Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it's life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."
"You will simply call her "Mom."
