Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women who love a child, either small or grown.

My own relationship with my mother was tumultuous at best - I left her home at 15 - but as I have matured and raised my own  boys, I learned this: She did the best she could with what she knew and never for a moment, do I doubt she loves me with all her heart.

I have two wonderful sons, such different children from the moment they were born. Iain is full of angst and passion about everything, he wants to fix the world and make it right for everyone. I ain is my "wayward" son, he sometimes loses himself on his quest for righteousness, but he always finds his way back. Liam is gentler, he wants peace in the world and everyone to get along, he is the sweetest child.

For Iain:

For Liam:


  1. The best thing is the world is to be a good Mommy....
    And/or to have a good Mommy!
    Happy Moms' Day to you!

  2. Have a wonderful Mother's Day. I'll be taking my 86 year old mom out for lunch and a bit of shopping! I'm happy...

  3. Happy Mother's Day Enz!

  4. Lovely sweet Enz! They are lucky that you understand them so well and accept and embrace their differences.

  5. I love Carry On my Wayward son. Hard to believe that song is over 30 years old.

    I'm sincerely sorry I missed you in my Mother's Day shout out today! Not sure how that happened. So a belated and enthusiastic Happy Mother's Day to You!

  6. Happy Belated Mother's Day! Both songs are very nostalgic for me. Carry On My Wayward Son is a song that was always playing in my house when I was a kid and Sweet Child O' Mine came out the summer I was born and my mom sang it to me when I was a baby. A great Australian indie band sings a slower version, it's going to be the mother/daughter dance at my wedding. I hope you had a great one!
