Soulful Sunday: Happy Mother's Day!

Yes, I know, it looks a little odd. When everyone else is showing roses and countryside worthy of Da Vinci paintings for their Mother's Day posts, I show two little dandelions. Well, there's a story, and since you're still sitting here I'll tell you:
As a kid, my mom and I didn't have much money, and before my step dad finally came around (like, where had he been? lol), I didn't have anyone to take me places to 'get mom a present'. So I made her presents, painted her pictures and, of course, brought her dandelions. Lots of them! I made bouquets and they would be all over the apartment, and later, the house. When I got older I tried making chains and headbands out of them, but one eensy weensy bug in my hair quickly put an end to that! So a dandelion bouquet it would be, it is, and it forever shall be.
So here's to my mom, who did a pretty darn fine job (if I do say so myself!). Who taught me to ride a bike, swim, be kind to others, love to help people, and most importantly, love learning. I may not be perfect, but I would be nowhere near the person I am without your love, support, guidance and unconditional cheering-on.
I love you, you are wonderful, and I couldn't have chosen a better mom if I had tried.
I hope you love your dandelions :)


  1. that's beautiful to know Meg!

  3. A beautiful and touching post, Meghann.

    I remember making dandelion bouquets for my mom.

  4. I really like that story - and what a nice tribute. I like dandelions a lot too.

  5. What a sweet story! A gift from the heart is always cherished. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

  6. What a beautiful post, I love dandelions! :)

  7. Thank you so much for your comments. My mom loved her card, with this picture on the front - it seems she's not alone, everyone here seems to love them too. I think maybe it is from our childhoods, great memories usually linger :)

  8. Dandelions are the best gift, all summer. Usually I just get the heads without the stems. I always have a pocket full when I come inside.
