Here’s to the mothers everywhere! Including, the mother of Outlander, who is both a mother and a grandmother, and such a generous soul.
I was busy celebrating with my own family yesterday, so I’m just getting this out now. What did you do to celebrate??
I am thankful to all the mothers in my life, some of whom have children, and some don’t, who have helped shape me into the person I am today, and continue to be my community. Ditto for my children. Every person really does need a village, and mothers are the heart.
For special occasions, I always ask for dates with my kids, homemade cards, art they’ve created, or something they’ve written, as those are the things I truly treasure. Yesterday I made maps to a picnic at a local nature preserve, and broke them up into teams – 12 year old + hubby, 16 year old + dog. It turns out I am no cartographer 😬, but when they finally did find me, we had a wonderful picnic together in nature. Last night we played Sorry, (I came in dead last, and didn’t care), and then went for a swim. My dream day. Our 16-year-old son gave this to me last night. I’m so lucky!
Below is a wee tear jerker/promo from Outlander Starz. I can’t wait to see all the family moments coming up in Season 5.
Here’s to mothers everywhere! Without them (us) none of us would be here! Blessings to you. xo
