Happy Mothers Day!

To ALL mamas.

To the moms of little tinies who wistfully recall the days when you could shower with the bathroom door closed, but still recognize with a deep urgency that you’re living smack-dab in the middle of “the good old days…”
To the moms whose kids are now having their own… (To my mom!)
To the moms who are having an extra tough Mother’s Day this year because it’s the first one since. Or it’s the tenth one since and you thought it would be easier by now. To the someday-moms who are still waiting for their turn. To the mamas who feel like they’re drowning and to the ones who have it all together. To the mamas whose babies live far away, to the ones whose babies are sleeping in the other room, and to the ones whose babies seem to never ever sleep.

To the moms like my amazing mother-in-law whose grown son sends her weird cards with hand-drawn illustrations depicting their birth. (??)
Mothers day card from andy 001

I probably should’ve made my own card that year, instead of letting him sign my name to this craziness.

I hope you have a restful, blessed Mothers Day. I hope you’re pampered like you deserve to be. Happy mothers day!

Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. -Proverbs 31:28-30

    Kelly, you really have a wonderful way with words! The wedding and family pics are just gorgeous. I sincerely hope you had a happy mothers day – you deserve it. By the way, I am one one of the mums whose babies (40year olds) are far away and I miss them so. One of them is going through some particularly challenging health problems at present and I feel so helpless. Thank you for your lovely words.

  8. Thank you so much for this 🙂 I have three beautiful children and have every reason to celebrate this Mother’s Day, but I struggled so much yesterday since I’m right in the middle of a miscarriage. Thank you for your heart!

  9. I hope you had a great day m-day, Kelly! That card is awesomely weird! lol

  10. So beautifully written! {And illustrated ;)}

    Happy {Belated} Mother’s Day to you!! 🙂

  11. And now, a quote from my favorite movie ‘Steel Magnolias’…
    “Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” ~Truvy

    I was in a puddle of tears..until I got down to the card. Hahahaha! Ya’ll should submit that to Hallmark, seriously.

  12. Hope you had a great day! By the way, when i tried to reply to your comment through my email you’ve got the “no reply” set up. Not sure if you know that or not 🙂

  13. hahaha that card is priceless. I’m sure that’s exactly what it looked like. 😉 And that family photo is beautiful. Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, Kelly!

  14. Your family photo is adorable!

  15. Only you can make me laugh and cry all in the same post. (Although the order was definitely cry, then laugh. That photo of Andy’s scribblings is amazing. Thank you for sharing that gem with us!) And happy belated mothers’ day to you, Ms. Kelly–a Proverbs 31 woman through and through.

  16. Okay, here I am one week late … but hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day with your beautiful family! Wow. I’m really behind on my blogging reading. Had a busy week with work …

    🙂 Linda
