Its almost Mother’s Day, arguably the most awesome holiday of the entire year. At least thats what my kids say…in fact they are constantly telling me that they wish EVERYDAY was mother’s day…they are so right, but alas, that would be too much wonderfulness all the time that we would all forget to pay any attention at all to other important stuff, like puppies, rainbows and butterflies.
SO, if you want to give a gift for mothers day that DOES last everyday of the year, quietly hanging on the wall, reminding her how much you love her every time she walks past it, the gift of custom portraits is your answer! (you.are.welcome!) Tauro Photography gift certificates start at $200 – email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday May 11th to order yours! (then be prepared to hugged…and I mean ALOT, on Sunday, after you let her sleep in and prepare her breakfast in bed of course).
To go with this post, I wanted to find some new quotes about moms and I found a couple I loved.
“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” Tenneva Jordan
“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” ~Rajneesh
And a photo, just because. These are lilacs from my tree. We planted this lilac tree on my very first mother’s day in this house, way back in 1996. It was a twig, and now its taller than my roof.
Can you smell them? now they are on my desk, distracting me from my work.
And one more quote, the best one I found today, cause its truth is so profound…
A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after. ~Peter De Vries
Oh yeah, absolutely the truth!
Happy Mother’s day to all the moms!
