"My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue?
It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Happy Mother's Day

" Mother and Child"
by Gustav Klimt

Today is Mother's Day ...the one day of the year that is set aside just for dear Mother.

Mother's come in all shapes and sizes,different backgrounds,cultures and financial status.

Influenced by their pasts and their Mother's Mother in the way of handling the children.

Each generation looking for a way to nurture a perfectly happy well rounded child.

Mothers have to deal with the everyday changes that occur in a family,some small and some life altering.

Some times the perfect answers to child rearing do not apply as each is her own individual with her own circumstance to deal with.

They say the bond between Mother and child begins at birth.

Both of my Grandmothers lost their mother's when they where of the ages 7 and 8 yrs in that small amount of time ,I can only imagine the great influence this and the times had on them both.

I asked my Mother once if she thought this was an odd thing that both my Grandmothers had lost their Mother's at such a young age and how did this effect her and her ideas of raising children.

She responded that above all else she knew her Mother loved her and nothing else mattered.

I take this as being the single most important lesson that both my Grandmothers were able to learn from their Mothers and pass down to each generation that has comes forth, is the ability to love and be loved by your children.

It will sustain you a lifetime.

Happy Mothers day to all !
