"It is easy to give birth. The hard part is showing up for the job every day."~ Erma Bombeck
This gal really does epitomize Mothers. She is quite beautiful, but I'm thinking her face isn't particularly serene and happy. In fact, she looks a little disgruntled. Probably because her airway is getting cut off by the two children hanging on her neck. The little boy looks like he is going to start a fight over who gets to hug mom. Plus, you can't help but wonder if she is sweating like a pig underneath all those clothes. Lord knows I would be!
The eldest is portrayed looking heavenward. We really know what she is thinking. "When is it nap time for these two so I can spend some time with Mom?" Either that, or she is doing a great job of eye-rolling because Mom just asked her to put the basket of vegetables away!
It isn't easy being a mom, but the blessings far outweigh the troubles.
I wish each one of you, whether you are a mother, grandmother, aunt or someone who has had the honor of filling some amazing shoes for kids who need and crave and appreciate all your love that you give,
a very happy Mother's Day. You are beautiful to those you love.
And to my two sweet girls who have blessed my life beyond reason,
I love you to the moon and back and more than ice cream.
