Silent Sermon Sunday

A mother is not determined by biology; a mother is determined by heart and intent to be emotionally available, serve as a spiritual guide, and be loving and supportive.

Happy Mother's Day with my deep love and gratitude to those who have served as my mother:

Marie Raimondo
Katherine Marks
Rose Raymond
Rose Slattery
Eileen Mross
Mary Fields
Freda Fahey
Linda Marston
Judy Markling
Barbara Frock
Carol Arduin
Michael Duggan
And most especially, James Dietor

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka She Who Has Been Gratefully Mothered

Interesting - I've been referred to as a mother all year, and not a single gift today. ;)

Hope it was a great one Holly...

Happy Mothers Day, my Queen, to you and all the lovelies in your life!

Dear Holly ... I feel honored and so happy to read your words of gratitude. You and I are close enough in age that I think this becomes a two-way lane quite often and I am who I am due to the love and wisdom I gain through our friendship ... gifts one might get from their "mother" and I love you for sharing yourself with me so honestly.
