"I think my life began with waking up and loving my mother's face." George Eliot
Every Mother's Day I face the dilemma of how to show my appreciation to my Mother with something as paltry as a card and random gift. Truthfully, there is no way to begin to thank a person who has had the most influence on the person that you become.
And I realize that there is no "pay back" gift that can show how much we value them in our lives.
The best way I can honor and appreciate all of the attention and nurturing that she gave me is to pass it on to MY children, so they can also grow up feeling valued... important...loved.
