Mothers Day

Sometimes getting off of Dog Island is as difficult as getting to it. Today is one of of those days.

We got up this morning and Jessie and Vergil made us a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit salad and granola and yogurt and honey and them we took a long walk down the bay. We came back and pulled leftovers out of the refrigerator, had our lunch, began to pack up and then a front rolled in.
Nothing to do but wait it out.
Which we all did with books and pillows as the rain fell.

Mr. Moon has taken Hap and Julia down to the little air strip where Hap's plane is and then he'll come back and we'll load everything else up and cross the bay.

It's been a beautiful weekend and Vergil and Jessie were right to arrange it. The company was perfect and yesterday's visit with Lily and Jason and the boys was one of the best times I can ever remember.

Mothers Day, 2012. A very, very good one. A quiet celebration of all of us women with stretch marks on our bellies, our thighs, our hearts.

Bless us all.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Oh, sweet perfection. I'm so glad you had a wonderful day. It was spectacular here too. Lots of love and surprises and happiness!

    Love the "stretch marks on our hearts" , how true. But they are still strong, these hearts of ours!

  2. I'm with you, Liv. God bless the moms. God bless the stretch marks on their bellies, and especially, God bless the stretch marks on their hearts.

  3. What a Mother's Day. Thinking of you, one of the best mothers I ever heard tell of.

  4. Yes, Ms. Moon - bless you on this mother's day 2012 for being a spectacular mom and grandma. I'm glad you had a good time.

  5. Happy Mother's Day, Mama Moon.

    Hey - was it you that posted an amazing video about mamas and bellies on your blog awhile back? If so can you repost the link?

  6. Happy Mother's Day to the woman who continues to show and teach me what true mothering is. Love and a bouquet of dark pink peonies for you.

  7. I am so glad that the weekend worked out. So, so glad. Happy Mother's Day to one of the finest.

  8. Yes, bless us all. I do feel blessed.
    So glad you had a wonderful time.

  9. The front came in here as well. It was gusting strongly here. Hope that you made it across okay without getting doused. Sounds like you had a great time.

  10. Stretch marks on our hearts...

    Happy Mother's Day to you too, it sounds like yours was perfect, despite the weather. I can get lost in that picture, thanks for sharing it with us.

  11. Oh I love that " stretch marks on our bellies, our thighs, our hearts"


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
