Comfortable In Her Own Skin

I hope all the Moms out there had the kind of Mother’s Day that you will cherish forever. As I reflected on the day and what it really means, I thought of all the wonderful things my Mom taught me. And there are many. But the one thing I’ve learned through her and because of her is to be comfortable in my own skin, to walk my own journey, leaving my mark but leaving no scars.

Another important thing I know is that every day is Mother’s Day. There hasn’t been a day in my life that I haven’t had thoughts of my children. I imagine that every mother feels the same. But our children don’t come out of the womb with a parenting manual and what mother hasn’t second-guessed her decisions and actions when it comes to raising them? That means we are human. We WILL leave our mark and yes, there WILL be scars, even though we try our best not to cause them.

This image is another double exposure of a floral image background (supplied by my daughter) and a wine label that I snapped in a grocery store. I could have named it “Siren Song” or something else just as provocative, but it spoke to me that this beautiful woman is comfortable in her own skin. Namaste’

Meet My Mom – 90 Years Young

I know, I know! It’s been a while since I’ve been to the blogosphere, but life and my business have kept me out of trouble 🙂 

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I want to wish all the Moms out there a blessed and joyous day.  Being a mom is really hard work and who says it stops when the young-uns leave the nest?  And who says there should only be one day a year to honor Mom?  

Anyway, I’ll be spending tomorrow with this lovely lady and my hubby.  Mom doesn’t really like to have her picture taken, so I snapped this with my phone last weekend.  I think she looks pretty good for being 90.  Maybe I’ll look this good when I’m her age.  One can hope, right? 

Wish I could have my kids and grandkids here, too.  But I feel loved no matter where everyone is geographically. Namaste’
