I Celebrate You

So, I got my copy today.
What fun to see my name on the back cover,
and in such prestigious company!
Holy Moly!
Love the book. 
Think the layout is luscious. 
Haven't had time to read it yet.
Hate my photo, no really...gag...
but I am honored to be included.
Kids are proud of me.
What a great MD present to me <3

Hope you all enjoy the special weekend,
whether you are being celebrated, 
celebrating your own Mom,
another Mom,
or just celebrating how wonderful and 
vital moms are to this world.
Nurturing or creating human beings,
there is no greater calling...
whether you birthed a child
or just love a child,
or mother other beings around you.
I celebrate you this Sunday.

Now I'm off to help a pal 
get organized this evening for her garage sale tomorrow.
The rest of the weekend is for whole house tidying
because darling daughter is just days away
 from being home in her own bed.
Not that the house is messy, 
(I hear my local chums saying yeah, yeah....)
I often say 
"I am not obsessively clean, however,
I am frequently tidy."
I just like to fuss, it 
helps build the anticipation.
Life is good.

Congratulations! I can't wait to see it in my local bookstore and say...hmmmm, I know her! Have a great weekend and a joyful Mother's Day.

Awwww.....Congratulations Dear Z!!! Such a well-deserved honor. Now, since that publication isn't readily available in these parts, you're putting me on a mission to hunt it down just so I can see that photo of you....Ok....really, read your write-up and learn something. Hope you enjoy your daughter time - what a great MD gift to you. Wish I had some of your obsessively clean thing going on here..... Hope all is well - sorry I've been MIA - things have been a little chaotic, but I did play a little catch up tonight. No signs of Mickey, huh? ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Congratulations and how exciting!
I have often admired your organizing style, and have also appreciated your blog posts on the subject. Sometimes when I am trying to sort, tidy, purge I feel you chirping away on my shoulder... "ten minutes at a time sweetie, ten minutes..."
Have a wonderful visit with your daughter!

Congratulations! I can hardly wait to read it!! And I'm happy to hear you sounding so happy and hopeful.
Since we are thinking of mothers this weekend, here is a favorite quote of mine (you know I collect them!). Now this is directly quoted so no disrespect intended regarding the voice it is written in. Sojourner Truth, from a lecture given in Iowa in 1872:
We have many booby men in de land, and they came from weak women, who say, I've got all de rights I want. I tell you if want great men, you must have great mothers. Why, children, rising babies is the greatest and most important business that is done. How can a woman give brains to her baby when she hasn't got em herself.

Congratulations Z - how great is that. Looks like a great book - need to see if I can get hold of one.
Happy Mothers Day to you
