I never knew how much love my heart could hold until someone called me “mommy”– Unknown
- • A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?” ”Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.” The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.” God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.” Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?” God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.” ”And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?” God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.” ”Who will protect me?” God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it’s life.” ”But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.” God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.” At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.” ”You will simply call her, ‘Mom.’” - Unknown
◦ Hello Operator, does Heaven have a phone number? Mommy went to Heaven, but I need her here today, My tummy hurts and I fell down, I need her right away, Operator can you tell me how to find her in this book. Is heaven in the yellow part, I don’t know where to look. I think my daddy needs her too, at night I hear him cry. I hear him call her name sometimes, but I really don’t know why. Maybe if I call her, she will hurry home to me. Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea? She’s been gone a long, long time she needs to come home now! I really need to reach her, but I simply don’t know how. Help me find the number please, is it listed under “Heaven”? I can’t read these big big words, I am only seven. I’m sorry operator, I didn’t mean to make you cry, Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye? If I call my church maybe they will know Mommy said when we need help that’s where we should go. I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall. Thank you operator, I’ll give them a call - Unknown

Have a happy Mother’s Day. Celebrate the nurturing side in all of us.
Motherhood is not just what happens when one has children. One can be a mother to the earth and the beauty all around us. Motherhood is a state of mind.
Happy Mother’s Day to my children, for without them, I would never have known the expansive love of being a human as well as a mother. They have truly taught me what love is and for this I am grateful.
I have bittersweet tears for my Mother whom I loved and feel so much gratitude for. If only I told her this more often, but somehow I think she knew.
Children wistfully say they wish that their parents told them how proud they were of them more often. How often do children say that ” I am proud of you” to their parents.
So, Mom and Dad, maybe it is too late but I am so very proud of you.
In honor of this day, I am enclosing some quotes that have been passed around in honor of Mother’s day.
