Here are some flowers for you.
For those of you who are mothers, who called your mothers today, who miss your mothers today, those who know you'll be a better mother than yours was and those who know you'll never be that good. For those for whom the word mother is a curse, a prayer, a sigh, a blessing.
Here is a duckie for you, too.
For those of you who still love to play, who share your toys, who turn cartwheels, who stick out your tongues on occasion. Who still eat snow, jump in puddles, and get dirty. Who think balloon animal-making is one of the most mystical and magical things a person can witness. Who occasionally still scrape knees, ask for lollipops at the bank, and color on placemats in restaurants.
Here are my babies.
Who will sit happily in a cloud of fiber, whack gamely at a pinata in a handknit sweater for a photo, and occasionally...just sometimes...give me a little time to knit.
Happy Mother's Day!
