When I write on the blog here, I usually just sit down and write whatever comes to me – I don’t spend a lot of time searching for just the right word… I want it to be as if I was talking to you and try to write in my own voice.

But today I’m having a hard time. For the last couple days I’ve started, and deleted a post on Mother’s Day. I just can’t find a way to sum up how much I adore my girls and the honour of being their mom. I can not express how much I enjoy being a mom alongside such an amazing dad. And to put here all the thoughts I have about my own mom, mother-in-laws, Grandma and women in my life… it would be a novel.

My heart feels full as I think about the women in my life who love so well. I am thankful for examples of mothers that I can look up to all around me.

Recently I heard an interview with Kate Gosselin and she said “Every day do your best as it’s one day closer to your goal of reaching happy, healthy adults. If you make a mistake today don’t let the mommy guilt get to you. Wake up the next day and strive to do better.”

I love that. Reminds me of the line in Anne of Green Gables – “Tomorrow is another day with no mistakes in it… yet.”

I think this Mother’s Day that is what I am going to concentrate on. As a daughter, daughter-in-law and mother I have made mistakes. But tomorrow I can do better. I am going to celebrate life and love today.
