Don't forget--Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 11

If Mom lives far away, you're going to want to get that card or giftie in the mail by tomorrow or Wednesday, at the latest! Phew, that was close! Aren't you glad I love you like I do!

And here's a fun idea:  This week, I'm going to dedicate all my SkinnyLink posts to the love of mothers everywhere. Do you have a favorite mom you'd like to honor? Drop me an email (or click on COMMENT, below) and I'll be happy to give her beautiful name and your loving words a place of honor here on the SkinnyLink. I know, it's not quite as good as shouting your love from the rooftops, but trust me, she'll love it anyway! (Remember how much she LOVED that goofy clay doojamathingy you made her at camp?)

This world is full of wonderful moms . . . 

 First in line is Maddie who says to her Mom, Julie J:  I just want to tell my mom that I think she's awesome!  I love you, Mommy! -Maddie

To Shelly from Heather:  My mom is the coolest, best mom EVERRRRRR!!!!! This week I was just thinking about when I was in high school and we all had early morning seminary, and she would wake up at 5:00 AM and make us WHATEVER we wanted for breakfast! Mine usually consisted of a smoothie and/or grilled cheese sandwich (weird huh?). Anyway, I love you mom! You're soo amazing and you really are the hippest, coolest mom in the WORLD! xoxo, Heather

. . . and from Shelly to Heather and then to her own beloved mom: Ahhhh -- thank you so much, my sweet Heather! You make me cry when you say things like that:) My mom - Pat Christensen...my, oh, my, what a mom she was! I like to think I was really good on the day I got chosen to be her daughter - why else would I have gotten so lucky? She was full of love & laughter, strength and faith, art, wisdom, music, charity, humor, patience, beauty. Most of all, she really, really, really LOVED me! I love and miss you, Mom!

And here's Natalie's love for her mom:  So, my mom is definitely the best mom of them all. She's wonderful for a million reasons, my favorites of which are that she gave me a love of fine literature, an appreciation for the arts and the knowledge that I could do or be ANYTHING I could imagine in my wildest of dreams. She also thinks I'm really funny, one of the few people on Earth who actually GETS my humor. True story: I once caused her to wet her pants on the way down to the Subway in London. Yup, she had to ride all the way home with pee pee pants. Thus I am withholding her name to protect her from the humiliation of it all. But mom, I love you SOOOOOOO much.

This is fun for me. I know most of these moms, so I know, first-hand that what their girls are saying about them is true! From Lindsay: My mom is the ULTIMATE example of someone who never takes “no” for an answer… she’s such a “go-getter”! She works hard, cares harder, and loves hardest! I truly admire her!! Thank you, Mom, for unconditional love.  Hugs Galore,  Linds
