Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a day of appreciation and respect. I can think of no mothers who deserve it more than those who had to give a child back. ~ Erma Bombeck ~

I think about Lucas, my first son I don't get to see grow up. I think about Max, and how he would not be here if Lucas still was. I think about how lucky we are to have Max, such an amazing little boy with such an easy going and happy nature. And then I wonder if Lucas' personality would’ve been like Max’s or completely different. I think about what Lucas would look like now. Would he and Max have looked the same? Would Lucas have had the same cheerful smile and "sometimes" curly hair like his brother? Or would they have been their own unique selves and not even have looked or acted like siblings.

Happy belated Mother's day to all mothers out there.


  1. You too, Susi. I saw the Erma Bombeck quote on FB this weekend and thought it was lovely. Thinking of you and your family~

  2. Happy Mother's Day. I love that quote, it is so perfect. Thinking of you and your boys.

  3. How did I miss that you're German?! Thanks for your notes on the blog, I often take a peek over here to see if anything new is brewing. Love to you and Max, with Lucas always in my thoughts.
