Mother's Day

I know it's Sunday and I don't ever write on Sunday

And I know it's Mother's Day and everyone posts sentimental posts re their Mothers.

I was brought up to believe that there shouldn't be ONE day to celebrate Mothers - that if we need one day to celebrate them then something is truly wrong.

Today instead of celebrating mothers - I want to celebrate my girls

The girls who never gave up on me - 
The girls who worry about me - and check up on me regularly
The girls who have already made plans for me - when I get too old  (LOL)
The girls who only want my happiness
The girls who threaten anyone who hurts me - they apparently know where to bury the bodies (grinning) 
The girls who make me proud with how they live their lives with integrity and love and respect.

Sometimes I look at them - or browse through family photos - and think to myself
"I DID do something right with my life!!"
