Happy Mother’s Day, Everyone!

Happy Mother’s Day to all my fellow moms out there!

As a daughter, we all know that it’s mother’s day everyday. Where would we be without our moms? My mom has always been there for me and the greatest lesson she has taught me is how to love unconditionally. She has certainly been a great example of loving without strings for me and my sisters.

As a mom, I am awed by the enormity of motherhood and how my own mom and other moms before me coped. They are a great testimony to the power of love and how it conquers all.

Looking at my almost grown daughters, I am awed and amazed that I didn’t mess them up so badly. I am humbled and privileged that they were entrusted in my hands. How grand it is to be a part of their lives! To watch them grow and blossom and know that I somehow had a little bit to do getting them to this point, it’s an unbelievable feeling… one that I relish everyday.

None of us are perfect moms. We make mistakes and we have many stumbles along the way, but that is life. We grow right along with our children.

So to all of us who are muddling to motherhood, more power!

Motherhood is not always about giving birth to another being. It is all about loving. If you have ever loved a child, nurtured, guided and influenced a child, whether by intention or not, this tribute is for you too. For where will we moms be without the network of sisters, friends, aunts, grandmas who lend their support through their love?

I’m so glad the weather is getting warmer and staying light later! I have more time to read outside now. Have you read any good books lately? Give me ideas what’s good out there.

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

FREE Facebook Cards

I just happen to run across my Facebook Cards today while looking for my work business cards. I was feeling around the chasm that is my purse looking for my business cards and these cards were the first that my fingers latched on to. You know why?

Because they are so thick and sturdy that they just about overshadowed the other cards in my purse!

I seriously love the heft in these cards and the brilliant colors of the print are not too shabby either. I will definitely be ordering more of these!

You need to check them out! They are also still available for FREE for a limited time, so order yours now. Click on the photo above to find out how to get them.

Sign this Petition to Hire Back NC Teachers!

I received this email today and I thought it worth sharing with you. If you live in North Carolina, please click on the link below and show your support for our teachers. In my daughter’s high school alone, they lost two great teachers last year due to budget cuts.

The petition is very close to its goal of 5,000 signatures. Help them get there by signing the 1% for Kids petition online.

Dear North Carolina MoveOn member,

The loss of thousands of North Carolina teachers is hurting our kids and our economy.

That’s why I created a petition to the North Carolina House and Senate and Governor Beverly Perdue on,which says:

We the undersigned support a 1% surtax on individuals earning more than $250,000 per year, with the proceeds going exclusively to hire back the thousands of North Carolina teachers who have been fired due to state budget cuts. Our kids are our economic future, and a high-quality education system is essential to ensuring that our state will continue to be a good place to live and do business.
