Happy Mother's Day!


I wish I had more photos to share of my mother when she was younger. I think all people are programmed to think that their mothers are beautiful (and they are!) but seriously guys, my mom was a stone cold fox. For serious.

And while we looked a lot alike in the younger years:
(Yeah, I know. I was beautiful.)

She somehow failed to pass on the "perfect nose" or the "amazing legs" gene to me, which someday I'll forgive her for. ;o)

Anyway. It's Mother's Day! Yay! I hope you had a great one. Mine started off with treats in bed and just got better as the day went on. We had a great day with our church family and I even got a photo shoot squeezed in thanks to the amazing cloudy weather. Then my husband bought me a scanner, which may not seem romantic to you, but to me it's pretty much the same as a diamond. :O) Did you do anything special?? I'd love to hear about it!

I wish I could be with my mom today as it is her first Mother's Day since her own mother passed away. I was looking at old photos of my grandma this evening and enjoying bittersweet memories of her. I can't be there to give my mom a hug in person today, but I just wanted to say thank you to the one who taught me about creativity and service and mercy.

And thank you to all of you mothers and women with mother's hearts who do so much for others. We are grateful for you!

Happy Mother's Day!
Love,
Disney

  1. Disney, you look so much like your mother! It's the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw the photo you posted. I think the resemblance is still striking, not only back when you were a kid and cute little Paige is very lucky to have inherited her mommy's looks! :)

  2. I thought the same as Manoule... You look exactly like her in the first picture, even more than the childhood side-by-side.

  7. I have to admit, I'm always so sad when you hate on your own body. You are lovely, and I'm sure your mother is proud of you.

  8. Wow! You look just like your mom! It's surprising you find beauty in her and not in yourself, since you two look like twins :) You are a beautiful lady and I'm sure Paige will say one day "my mom was a stone cold fox".

  10. Wow, you do look so much like your mother. I also lost my mother right before Mother's Day last year. She was my best friend and it was really tough. I love your tribute to your mom. It's so sweet and you can tell you two are very close.

    My mother and I started writing haiku poems (verses of five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables) for each other about ten years ago. We would write them for each other on special occasions and always on our birthdays. Some were silly, some were touching; all were enjoyed. It was "our thing".

    Here's what I wrote for her this year:

    Beautiful, special
    Wish you were here with me now
    So happy you were mine

    P.S. On a side note, I'm so glad you returned to blogging! You published a story I submitted about my son in an online book you wrote a few years ago. My son is the one that asked me when I was married and I said a long time ago to which he responded, "Was Jesus alive?" :)
