Mothers Day

This Mothers Day I am reminded of The Mommy Exchange I outlined last year. It’s a  really  great system, now more than ever.

I think of my commenters here as my babies, even if you’re older than me. You’ve all given me so much comfort and laughter, you’ve made me feel special and you make me so proud of you. On the other hand, many of you have been like mommies when that’s what I needed. Sometimes you’ve got to make your own family as you go along.

I’d like to tuck you all in bed and kiss you good night. Then maybe you can tuck me in. Go and read about the Mommy Exchange here if you forgot it. Tonight my darling friend Summer wrote to me: “Happy Mothers day, Mommy! Love,   Mommy.” It works! xoxo

    Is this open to Mummies too? That’s what we’re called down here in the southern hemisphere.

    happy mother’s day sister/mother/friend wolf!

    my life is better with you in it, and it really touched me to read these words this morning. to know that you feel about your ‘friends&readers’ as warmly as many of us do about you really means a lot (or at least it does to me). i’ve lost a lot along the way and have learned to appreciate the value of ‘finding’….so thank you for letting me ‘find’ you. bless the internet.

    Happy Mother’s Day, Sister Wolf! That’s all I can say for now, or I’ll start to cry, which I really don’t want to do. I still miss my mother so much…

    Much love to you, Sister. I really do believe you have it right with the idea of a “found family” and I’m happy to think that we are, in some way, a part of it for you.

  11. I will be tucking you into bed tonight and reading you a story. Love Mummy xxx

    I wish you were my mommy but of course you’re MUCH too young to mother an almost 30 year old 😉

    Sister, I am relatively new here, and this is my first comment. I have been going through your archives over the last few days, and I am deeply touched by what you have been through, and always find myself laughing with your remarks. I know this probably means nothing, but you are what I have been looking for in the blogosphere. A breath of fresh air in a sea of pretentiousness. So, I wish you from the bottom of my heart a very happy belated Mother’s day.xoxo

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, my dear Sister. You are one of the warmest, most kind, and loving people I know. Thanks for sharing and giving us *you* all year long. Never forget that you are loved.

  28. Bevitron says:

    Happy Mother’s Day, belated, to you, Sister Wolf! I love both of the pictures. Your smile is so real, so genuine, it makes me happy.

  29. What a lovely post. Mommy Wolf/Sister Wolf, belated Mother’s Day wishes to you!

    Happy Mothers Day (belated) I like to see that picture as a renaissance version of squeezing students into a volkswagen : “let’s see how many babies we can get on this woman’s boobs..”

    Hugs … Belated, but for real!
