Soulful Sunday: Happy Mother's Day!

Yes, I know, it looks a little odd. When everyone else is showing roses and countryside worthy of Da Vinci paintings for their Mother's Day posts, I show two little dandelions. Well, there's a story, and since you're still sitting here I'll tell you:
As a kid, my mom and I didn't have much money, and before my step dad finally came around (like, where had he been? lol), I didn't have anyone to take me places to 'get mom a present'. So I made her presents, painted her pictures and, of course, brought her dandelions. Lots of them! I made bouquets and they would be all over the apartment, and later, the house. When I got older I tried making chains and headbands out of them, but one eensy weensy bug in my hair quickly put an end to that! So a dandelion bouquet it would be, it is, and it forever shall be.
So here's to my mom, who did a pretty darn fine job (if I do say so myself!). Who taught me to ride a bike, swim, be kind to others, love to help people, and most importantly, love learning. I may not be perfect, but I would be nowhere near the person I am without your love, support, guidance and unconditional cheering-on.
I love you, you are wonderful, and I couldn't have chosen a better mom if I had tried.
I hope you love your dandelions :)

Meghann now that I think of it, why aren't all mother's days pictures of dandelions.

Your post was beautiful, I hope your Mom got to read it. If not you should make sure she sees it.

God would totally come to you Meghann, I can't think of anyone better to come too.

I love you Meghann.

Meghann laughing so hard. It is so true. I am always, I am not picking up a sock ever again as I bend to pick it up.

Is your Mom over, if so, toss her a Hello from me.

How is my favourite girl doing today?

I am off to the hospital for half of the day to get pamidronite for my bones.

Blah....

Have a great day.

That little picture of the bird on your sidebar is so cool. It's little mouth opened like that.

Yesterday went fine. I am just tired.

How is the garden, is it all done now.

Love Renee xoxo

Meghann we had a little birthday for her yesterday with the aunties and family.

Today I will go there for supper too.

She is a doll, as you can only imagine.
