    Thank-you so much for your generous review, David. It's great to hear from you again so soon!
    Yes, being a mother is such an important job, one underappreciated by her children. Hopefully in time I will also be my children's friend. For now, as I sometimes find myself wanting to pull my hair out, I carry on down this long and winding road....where it leads...who knows!
    I appreciate your continued support of my writing....Nadine

NadineM,

My daughter is 23 and she is a very long way away from me. I miss her very much.

The theme was perfect for today. The descriptive words were wonderful. The arrangement was nice. The flow was smooth.
Nicely effective and impressive. Very well reflected thoughts narrations and expressions.

There was no SPAG. No room for improvement.

I look forward to seeing you again.

Love you,

Oatmeal

Nadine, thank you so much for your wonderful and meaningful Mother's Day message. I especially love the lines:

Wherever you find yourself today, Mother's Day, remember that you are a wonderful mother. Your best is all you have, and you give so freely to those who call you Mom.

As moms, I think most of us do the very best we know how with our children. We aren't perfect, and we make mistakes, but our intentions are always for their welfare and happiness.

Happy Mother's Day to you!
ellen

Nadine,
What a beautiful way to say Happy Mother's Day. You expressed
different situations and feelings for Moms. Moms do struggle with sorrow and worry over their children, but also children give them so much joy.

    Barbara,
    You're so right about motherhood (actually parenting) being the hardest job. The rewards are endless though, making it all worthwhile!
    I appreciate your taking the time to read and for being in touch with me today!
    Take care, my friend!.........Nadine

    nadine,
    you are very welcome.
    yes, the rewards are endless even when they are whining at your feet. (mine is not happy with me because it is beautiful outside and i need to do a little work inside.)
    love,

Thanks so very much for the pep talk, Nadine. I really needed it. Somtimes I see parenting like jumping out of a plane without a parachute. I just hope to toss them to a safe spot, and not to cause too much damage. It is a really good post.

Happy Mother's Day
Michelle

    Michelle,
    Thanks for your genrous review. I wanted all mothers to know that even in the toughest, most trying times, their best is all they can do! I tried to encourage moms not to lose hope and that it's okay to love the kids most when they're sleeping!!
    Have a great day! Thank-you again for your kind words......Nadine
