Happy Mother's Day

Betty's Beautiful Mom


Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there, and to all those with mothering spirits who many not necessarily have given birth, but who nurture and love nonetheless.

I am thinking of my mom today and sending her love.

I am thinking of my sons today and sending gratitude.

I am sending out this quote to my sisters who will understand it perfectly:


And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see -- or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.

--Alice Walker


Happy Mother's Day!
