Yes, it has been a good day. Emily Dickinson said a "mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled." Sometimes this is overwhelming to be needed so. However, on the other hand, being able to run to your own mother in sad or hard times certainly is comforting. I guess you have to be a mother to understand this quote by Lisa Alther: "Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease". In any case, my own little personal corner of the Mother's Day world was lovely.

My children gave me flowers and gifts. My husband loved me. I spent the day in a beautiful canyon with the sounds of the melting snow running down a stream and the smells of warm, clean air all around in the company of my family.

Happy Mother's Day to all... not just today but everyday, for everything you do !! Because...
"youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother's secret hope outlives them all" ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Great story and lovely photos! I wish I were there, right now, and how I would love some clean air vs. Los Angeles smog to breathe.

i like hearing what mothers day is like from moms who aren't my own. I often wonder what she really thinks when we gift her :)

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
