From Mommy-Near to Mommy-Far

Today is Mother's Day and sofar it's been just great. I've talked to my Mom and Russ has called his and I have received presents and enormous amounts love.

While I am happily being spoiled by those I love, I felt it was wrong to go through the day without remembering Lydia's Faraway Mommy. This woman, who I will likely never know, is a huge part of our lives and I felt it was appropriate and necessary to share with her a portion of this day. So here we are, balloons in hand with a picture of Lydia and a note from me attached. I know she will never get them...but one day, maybe Lydia will find her and get to meet her and hopefully Lydia will share with her the stories of going out every mother's day with Mommy-Near in order to honor Mommy-Far.

Happy Mother's Day!
