Happy Mothers Day!!!


To all the women in my life; the expecting mothers, mothers of the young or old, wives, those desiring motherhood in the near or far off moment. Happy Mothers Day!

I love this painting by one of my favorite artists James Christensen. It is rich & beautiful with details of the roles of motherhood, a wife, a friend and much more!

The Responsible Woman
This painting is an homage to artist James Christensen's wife, Carole. He began to contemplate all her roles in life and the many weighty responsibilities she shouldered as a full-time wife and mother of five young children. Women everywhere relate to the need to confidently soar above life's troubles and challenges. In a given day she may shuttle the children, prepare a gourmet feast, keep to hectic time schedules and more, but she always keeps her head up and carries the light of hope to those around her. A delightful gift to honor a wife, mother, grandmother, sister or any heroic woman in your life.Among the important women's roles portrayed in this painting are: Mother, Pet caretaker, Chef, Housekeeper, Leader (Lighting the way with wisdom), Scheduler. How many more can you find?

I found this article interesting. What is a mother worth? Ladies it is greatly in our favor and quite surprising how the worlds view, is tagged with a price. We all know that money is not everything and there is in no way a price you could put on motherhood. It is priceless and very much rewarding in every aspect. However, it is fun to read! http://kdka.com/business/finance_story_123213030.html
