Alright, I know Mother’s day was this past weekend. And it’s not that I’m trying to make up for not calling and visiting with my beloved Mother(s) and Grandmothers. ‘Cause I did. My Mom has a very special place in my heart. She was a single mother who struggled, but somehow managed to raise two healthy, vibrant daughters. So although it’s belated, I thought I’d share a couple of “Mother Scenes” out in our front pasture right now. Since I don’t yet have kids of my own, these are what my Mom proudly refers to as her “Grand-fillies and colts.”

And on that note – why do we need one day to celebrate our Moms anyways? They have been there for us 365 days a year since our lives began. We should be thanking God and commemorating everything they have done for us – every day.

This is a tribute to Mothers everywhere. Where would we be without our mothers? Grandmothers? Mother figures?

Our mothers have taken care of us. Nurtured and fed us, without question.

They have stood by our sides, even when we may have been a little “nerdy” at times. Moms are always proud, no matter what we do.

They protected us from danger.

They taught us how to run and play. And how to survive.

And every once in a while, they let their hair down too…

Then they tucked us in at night and made sure we got our rest.

Where would we be without our mothers?

I shudder to think how different my life would have been without mine.
