A Moment For Mothers

I came home from work today and told my son: "Mom's a little grumpy right now, you might not want to be around me."
My son says: "Mom, maybe you should buy some shoes" (True story)

All cheekiness aside, this weekend is Mother's Day, and as a mum myself, I am so proud of my wonderful son.

Diane and Scott Kennedy At Home

Scott just turned 25 this year and is in the 'forgotten' graduating class of 2020. He just completed his degree in computer engineering and it was straight into the workforce for him. In fact, he's already landed a full time job programming games at a local company.

Right now, I'm so thankful that his new job has him working from home and we're both grateful for that opportunity during this crazy time. It's not the quantity but the quality of time spent and I think it's so sweet he took some time to snap a few fun photos together, as a Mother's Day treat. 💓

I couldn't be more proud of him. And can't wait to see where he goes from here.

Motherhood

Tip of the hat in recognition
To all devoted women and mothers,
Your love, care, strength, and devotion
Knows no bound like earth's weather

Like the morning star you shine
And lit the path to life;
Like a great messiah you fine
Rest for the family you have.

The laughter of your children always
Excite you and fills you with joy.
Through thick and thin you always
Stick around to show your love;

You're an embodiment of life's greatest gift;
For you're twenty persons in one for us:
You're a teacher and a great therapist,
You're a doctor and a great nurse,

You're a chef and a great baker
You're a driver and a great instructor
You're a daughter and great mother
You're a guardian and a great protector

You're a supporter and great superwoman
You're a queen and a great matriarch
You're a homemaker and a great career woman
You're an archetype of motherhood and matriarch.

Whoever said: "Jack of all trades, master
Of none" has never met you, in your home;
Like the great Elephant matriarch You master
The best skills and route of motherhood 

~ A B Faniki


💖Wishing everyone a wonderful Mother's Day💖
