Our Day


Up first 22 March 2009... Mothers Day

Happy Mother's day to all. Here are some great mother quotes...

All mothers are working mothers. ~Author Unknown

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? ~Milton Berle

Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing. ~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987

What a day! I did my 'daughter' thang through the post, providing my mother with some much needed Mac Studio Fix and a cool Afrocentric card. She was pleased. Although come to think of it, now I'm a mum it's been while since I did a trip down to my Mum's to spend mother's day with her. Should try and do that next year. Anyway, on the flip side I got some mother's day of my own. The boys and Henry are great on Mother's Day never failing to show their love...it's nice being a mum on mother's day. I was awoken to Kamaal's self made yummy crepes, then presented with my lovely cards and gift - a new computer chair -so needed/appreciated. Then we has some mum and sons time in the park while Henry prepared a delicious meal mostly courtesy of Mark's and Spencer's but as we all know it's not food it's M&S food. It was a lovely day as can be seen in my slide show...Thank you boys (including the BIG one!!!)

Slide show was fun to do and looks good...WHEN IT WORKS

but I think I prefer the real thing...

This beautiful day was made somewhat poignantly more beautiful by being the day God chose for young reality TV celeb, Jade Goody, to pass away in her sleep aged 27 after a very public battle with cervical cancer. She left behind two beautiful boys and during her final weeks, the nation watched as she displayed her very palpable, deep love for them. It saddens me that they will not see their mum anymore but I know for sure that everyday she will be watching them grow from her higher plane until they can be together again. RIP Jade Goody, your legacy is great and you have saved the lives of many women, your sons are proud of you.

I am thankful for being in the here and now with my babies and am glad for every moment I am privileged to be in their presence. Tomorrow is not promised to no one.
