Motherhood Never Stops. Enjoy.

Sometimes I forget that I’m still a mommy. Even though my children are grown and have active lives of their own, I care just as deeply for them as when they were five. And, now I have a daughter-in-law to add to my brood. I might be Mommy2, but in my heart she’s an...

Celebrate Motherhood – 4/07

Tomorrow’s an even better reason to stop the action of your life. Make your mom’s day by calling her, so she knows for sure you’re thinking of her. Then, if you’re a mom, celebrate yourself for your most spectacular achievement so far — making another human being....
