Mothers are special. I have to say that I won the mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother lottery! These wonderful, beautiful, strong women all had a profound influence on me and I am so thankful.

On this day, I am going to use this post to give a special dedication to my mother for being so supportive and for showing me how to maintain a sense of wonder and joy. No one could ever be more excited to see an ocean sunset or a colorful landscape or a beautiful flower…and experience each one like it was the first time…like my mother :)  I love you, Mom!

And Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers on this beautiful day! You create and shape the future :)
