On Mother's Day

....I'd like to say, Thanks Mom, for taking that call from me sitting behind the piano.
And as we say in our family, "The card is in the mail." Seriously, what would I do without you?

To all the moms out there who are doing it just like they've been doing it for years now...Good morning! Enjoy your burned up toast and soupy cereal made by small and loving hands. And Thanks, Candice, for taking two of my off spring last night. I can actually hear birds chirping this morning instead of sibling rivalry! (And I miss the little stinkers).

To the new Mommies born just this week: Welcome to the sisterhood. Your little men are sweet and precious. And hairy. Delightfully so.

To the dear Aunts out there with no kids of your own, who send out presents on time and babysit on the romantic holidays and brag on your nieces and nephews...I salute you too.

And for the Mommies with empty arms, I pray they will soon be filled. God has a special place in his heart for you and I do too. May your fertility drugs work well, but not too well (cough cough Octamom). May your paperwork pass through officials hands quickly and with favor. And may your candle of hope never go out.

On the whole multiple thing. If, on these fertility drugs, that happens to me... I am thinking two things:

Vintage needs a little more media attention ;)
And my girls (Candice and Vanessa) have a soft spot for brown-skinned babies... I could just farm them out!

You are a mom that I hope to me like some day... Happy Mother's Day!

On Mother's Day, my arms always feel especially empty for my two that are in Heaven waiting for me..."They Cannot come to me, But I WILL go to them"....
Empty arms really really suck. The broken lost dreams, the angst...yes I used that word, the sadness...overwhelming sometimes.

I think that's part of the reason we try not to make a huge thing of mother's day at Vintage.

Saw this post and thought of you....

You always say the perfect thing! That's why I am going to send you a check. It's in the mail : ).
