Guest Post: Gayl (aka my sweet mom)

In honor of Mother’s Day, I asked my sweet mom, Gayl, if she would be willing to submit a post for Motherlogue. Being the rock star that she is, she agreed. The photo of us is circa December 1972 when my mom and I were…both younger.

Mom, thank you for being you and for helping me learn to be me.


Mother/Daughter Thoughts for Liz, my daughter who is turning 40!  

We have love, laughter and life itself.

We give and receive from one another.

We’re surrounded by the universe and all its little miracles.

We give each other warmth, security and room to grow and discover the world.

We have friendship and faith.

We have a sense of wonder and wisdom.

We dream and have the courage to believe in our dreams.

Everyday is special and special days are magical like your 40th Birthday.

Enjoy and Celebrate your 40 years!

Love You,
