"Another Mothers Day is here..." Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York.
 and has worked in the ophthalmology
 field of medicine for over 30 years
Happy Mothers day!

Another Mothers Day is here


Mother’s Day always  brings out mixed feelings for me; since I lost my mother 16 yrs ago the holiday seems to have less meaning for me, in fact I don’t’ really look forward to celebrating it much any longer. We do have plans for a great brunch that Becker Farms offers that is the best around but it still can’t replace all those years we celebrated together with mom.

The week prior to Mother’s day we go to the cemetery and fill her vase with beautiful Spring flowers that last a few months.  If I go right on Mother’s Day, it becomes too sad of a holiday .  

My very good friend is truly celebrating this year; she is in the throes of adoption of a foster baby she took in at 2 months old who is now 17 months. She amazingly looks just like my friend and I couldn't be happier for her. Fostering can be  a thankless and  adventurous thing to do, which she has found out,  and not for the faint of heart.

To all you mother’s enjoy your special day.  Raising a child is one of the most noble and rewarding things anyone can do, to have the power within you to influence and guide another human from birth on is an amazing opportunity and gift. 
To all Mothers;
Happy Mothers day!

 My children don’t seem to understand the fact that motherhood doesn't stop at a certain age…it continues all of their lives. A mother never stops worrying about their child’s happiness and safety .
