Mother's Day

Is such a bittersweet day for me. I miss my own mom terribly and wish that somehow she could see her two newest granddaughters, they would have loved being spoiled by her.

I think of my daughters and my heart is so full with happiness and love for my girls, but at the same time sadness for their birthmoms. I wish there was a way for their birthmoms know how well they are both doing and to see how amazing and strong both girls are. Today we will take time to recognize and remember both Sylvie's and Mary's birthmothers.    


  1. They are both so cute. Mary's hair is getting longer everytime you post a new picture 8-)

  2. that photo is such a great reflection of their personalities. I didn't know your mom, but I am sure she would have fallen in love with those sweet girls....*hugs

  3. Looking at this picture, I would believe that your mom is watching over these girls with a huge smile on her face. How could you not smile looking at them. So cute!

  4. I'm sorry your Mom isn't alive to see these two beautiful granddaughters. They are beautiful and precious and by seeing them in pictures, they're very very easy to love and spoil.

    I also recognize that Mother's Day is not all about me, it's about the woman that carried my child. Very nice reflection.

  5. That's beautiful, Joyanne. Today has been a really tough day for me as well. It's my fifth Mother's Day, but probably the hardest one I've ever had. I get what you're saying.

    Hugs to you -


  6. Happy Mother's Day Joyanne! So many people to reflect on on this day!
