** happy mothers day!! **

first off
happy mothers day to all you mommies!!
heres mine
hee hee
i love this photo!
i know she's really pretty huh?

* pretty in pink breast cancer survivor *

i'm thinking a lot about her today
not just because it's mothers day
she IS my mom
but she has been such a rock for me this year
as i tumble through this
divorce & grieve the loss of my dad & sister...

when my dad passed away she was the one who
was in the same state as him..
they have been divorced since i was 7-8 years old..
she remarried long long ago...
but she was the one who police called first...
she was the one who had to call & tell all her children
the devastating news...
& she was there to support all 4 of her children..
& continues to deal with his estate items
for us...
she doesn't have to
she does...

my sister passed away 10 months after my dad..
this time
i received the call from the police..
i had to tell my mom the devastating news..

this is our first mother's day without her sister susie...
she has 5 beautiful children

my heart breaks for her babies
my mom...
i can't imagine how it would feel to lose a child
or to lose a mom

the strength of all 6 of these people
overwhelms me..
i could do wonders with just a morsel of it
am honored to be my moms daughter ..
my sisters babies

i love you

Maggie, I had no idea - I'm so very sorry for the losses your family has suffered.

What a truly beautiful loving tribute to your Mom and all she's done for you!

Maggie you are soooo very awsome. I know and understand you and your feelings well. You appreciate reality. You are a very strong woman, don't forget that. Your wisdom and sense of humor will carry you far. I LOVE YOU. Your Godmother Karen.

Hugs to you Maggie. Your Mom should be proud of you. Hard to lose your sister so soon after your dad's death. You are strong. You give to others through your paintings.
