happy mother's day

I know it's just a Hallmark holiday, made up to sell cards. But I don't care.

We don't often think about how much our mothers have given to us, have meant to us, have done for us. This one day on the calendar in May is just a little reminder.

So happy mother's day, mom. The card is in the mail.

» Thank you. Once again you have brought me to tears. Today is not only Mother's Day, it is also my mom's birthday. Just shy of 14 months since her death, it is so lovely to see her looking so alive and vibrant, with me just a toddler. And time marches on...
Can't wait to see you!! I love you...

» thanks so much for posting that link kim cuz i was taught the history of mother's day at school in turkey, way before hallmark made it there, and i kept getting confused all week as people kept saying it was a hallmark holiday.

derek, that's a beautiful picture. i'll only have to wait another week to give my mom a hug.

  Gaming the system: How moderation tools can backfire
Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.
