To Moms Everywhere

Mom’s create, mold, protect, and endure all that is difficult with their children. The permanence of their worries, care, support, and nurturing has no beginning nor end, just continuous. They simply never stop being moms. From the time their young come out into the world, till their last breath, their love remains unconditional…always. My mom always said, there is nothing like a Mother’s love. Nothing else like it. Being a mom is likely the most important and hardest job in the world. I hope to make it look as easy as you amazing moms have out there one day…

Celebrating moms everywhere, Happy Mother’s Day!

To My Mom (A la carte)

My mom can drive me completely nuts.
She can be my epipen and anaphylactic shock at the same time. :p
She can will me to do everything, anything, to nothing at all.
Her happiness is like a hearty appetite – If my heart had a belly, the sight of her smile would be enough to keep me full for a lifetime.
Her sadness has the ability to wash over me like a tsunami of emotions invading my night.
When she laughs, my soul is literally being spoon fed the comforts of her home cooked food – there is nothing on any menu even comparable.
She nurtures the way the sun gives life to all things around.
Everything she touches becomes beautifully garnished.
I can vividly recall being a little girl in the nook of her arms and her hands always carrying the scent of garlic from cooking us the best(understatement) gourmet dishes.
To me, that familiar scent was a mother’s love.
Puppies become attached to her, son in-laws become enamoured and 20 pounds heavier, even strangers can feel
her warmth in the distance.
She lives like she cooks – Serving plates overspilling with love and kindness.
And she always said to us “Always make extra, it’s better to have more than less…we don’t want anyone to leave hungry.”

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums who keep us well fed in every sense.

Mom, I love you with all my heart –

xo, T
