They Are Queens

We all have one, even if we are not one. A mother.

Some of our mothers are still living, and some of them are not.

Some of us are young mothers, or middle age mothers, or grandmothers. Some of us are step mothers.

Everyday is mothers day, but today it is designated as such so we can make a little extra fuss for our mothers.

So wishing all the mothers out there a very Happy Mothers Day.

These images are from this fabulous book "Crowns" by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry, forward by Maya Angelou.

I love this book. I keep it on display in my living room book table. The woman on the cover reminds me you can be a warrior but you can still wear a great hat. My husband's mother had picture of herself taken each year to show off that year's birthday hat. Cool, huh?
