A Mother of a Day...

"There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one." Jill Churchill

I'm not entirely sure what that means seeing as I don't have a million children... (but it certainly feels like that sometimes!) Yes. You read right. I believe, essentially, that it is my children that make me a good mother. I learn with them.

I'm not one of those that believes every woman is born to be a mother. But I do believe that motherhood gave birth to me.   No matter how philanthropic, giving and unselfish you are... parenthood is when you learn the meaning of selfless.   

I hope you all had a day of appreciation and love.  I did!  Then again I'm pretty pushy about showing and being shown love and appreciation every day!!  Why only one day?  I'm a Mother everyday!!* 

Happy Mother's Day to you all lovely women!  You may not be a Mother but you have one. 
....I'm no expert but...if I have any 'advice' about motherhood, it is this... your children are a part of you.  They are not you.  Don't forget to follow your path and let them follow theirs, parents are merely guides and the true source of unconditional love. I mean come on.  We love teenagers.  J

* I do practise what I preach. My wonderful mother is a part of my mad household and my mother-in-law is probably going to move in soon. I hope I am a fab a mother-in-law as mine is to me.

Happy mother's day! You sound like you are an absolutely wonderful mother. I'm blessed in that I have a fantastic mother, too - she is more Best Friend than mother now that I am more grown up! She has let me follow my own path, divulge in my own interests even if they are completely different to hers, and even dealt with me when I was a terrible teen! The only thing she doesn't approve of is The Boy, but I can't really blame her... no one can be perfect, as you said! :P

Happy mother's day my dearest friend. That would be a great big household... all the moms will be in your home soon.

PS... I don't think I'd be a fab mother-in-law though. Hahaha!
