One of my favorite lines from the musical “Wicked” is:
“She had a mother, like SO many do…”
Cracks me up every time.
Of course in my case I’m blessed to have SO many wonderful mothers in my life.
My own Mother is pretty amazing.
And then there’s Tim’s mother. Also amazing.
And Tim’s mother’s Mother.
And Tim’s father’s Mother.
As well as my own grandmothers who are angels to me now.
This is my father’s mother, I regret that I do not have a picture of my mother’s mother
My friends who are mothers. My sisters-in-law, my cousins who are mothers, my aunts, Tim’s aunts…
All of them fabulous and outstanding women in their own right. I’m so proud to have them all in my life.
And of course there are all the mothers I know through blogging. Mothers who are about to have that title for the first time and even mothers who just became a mother for the fifth time. Mothers who’ve had tremendous heartache. Mothers who’ve adopted. Mothers who constantly fight for the rights of their children. Mothers who have (or will have) two boys and a girl, just like me.
We are a pretty amazing lot, all of us.
This weekend I plan to celebrate ALL of the mothers in my life whether in real life or online.
