A Picture Says a Thousand Words.
A Picture of Words Says Happy Mother's Day

I hope all you mothers out there have had a lovely day; I know I have.

It started with breakfast at the local diner followed by a day in the sunshine, planting my garden with the determined assistance of the Man-Cub. We both came out a bit sunburned despite liberal applications of sunscreen but, the results were worth the effort and, with any luck, this year the garden will thrive.

My love for the Man-Cub and his sister needs no such luck; it thrives on a daily basis and, I have a hunch that they feel the same way.

Having these two kids was the best thing I ever did, hands down. They give me reason to feel optimistic about the future of humanity as well as providing hours of amusement for their father and me. I can’t imagine a world without them in it and I hope that, one day, they both know the degree of pride and affection that I have for them mirrored in their feelings for their own children.

Together, they walk this earth, each holding half of my heart.

Heck, having them in my life is totally worth the recent prolapse of my uterus but, that’s a post for another day.

Happy Mother's Day, y'all.
