Happy Mother's Day!

Posted May 8

Ovarian Cancer Walk, 2008

Happy Mother's Day to everyone celebrating the day with your mom or your kids or both!

And that includes all the moms of fur babies as well!

I miss my mom every day since she passed away in 2009, but I am so grateful and blessed to have two wonderful daughters to share her memories with.

Above you can see a photo of my mom and daughters and me at the Gail Parkins Ovarian Cancer Walk in Raleigh in 2007. My mom, who was a social worker before she retired, was a kind and compassionate woman committed to making the world a better place. I hope her spirit lives on in my girls.

Are you doing anything special to honor your mom or did your family spoil you today?

    Happy mother's day Faye! Thank you for all you do for us. And happy mother's day to all the other mother's on the blog. My whole family is sick (my husband and I have pneumonia and Emma has an ear infection), so we spent mother's day resting. It will be a memorable first mother's day for sure!
