5211-19 Happy Mother's Day!!

You knew I would do my self portrait this week with my mom of course!
I decided to do something a little different and non-traditional this time.
 I am truly blessed with a wonderful mother! Her unconditional love for me is amazing!

Happy Mother's Day to you one and all. Since I am not a "real" biological mother but have had quite a hand in raising stepchildren, I leave you with this wonderful poem I found. I truly feel these words!
Not flesh of my flesh,
nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
you didn't grown under my heart - but in it.

Girl--I stole your poem and put it on my blog! I still love it! Hey, I wanted to tell you that I'm sorry I dropped the ball on the 52 week project. There's a reason, and I imagine you guessed it already....
