HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY: A Sentimental Reflection


As Fernando, Delores and I head out for a special “Muffins with Mom” tea and storytime at a local preschool today, I find myself feeling a little sentimental about my own mom, whose birthday would have been tomorrow. She was an artist and an inspiration to me in all things, including how to live a good life despite difficult circumstances.

She never got to see DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE in final book form, but she did encourage me to keep working on it during the early drafting stage and I know she’s up there cheering me on.

And today, in a way, I, too, will be bringing my mom to “Muffins with Mom” for I will be wearing the special pin my sister and dad had made featuring her signature bird. ❤️

Happy Mother’s Day (almost) to all!  And don’t forget to give your mom a hug, if she’s still around, and tell her how much you love her!

  1. Your dearest mom and my dearest friend is much in my thoughts and prayers this week! During her birthday week every year we always made a little drive to Jim Hamm park to see the elusive yellow headed blackbirds. So yesterday I went in her honor and saw more than a dozen! She would have loved it as usual. One year she even took your dad to see them.

  2. Lovely post. My mom passed a few months back and was definitely on my mind. Mother’s Day really is a dynamic inter generational experience, at least in the heart if not in person. Happy belated Mother’s Day 💐
