Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s day to everyone! Here is a great story from Skirt Magazine ( which is one of the best publications out there for everyone- not just women!

This was written by a woman who’s fiance broke up with her a few months prior to the wedding and rather then give up the honeymoon cruise, she took her mom. Here’s the paragraph I loved:

“We drank too much. We ate too much. We wandered around the various ports of call taking countless pictures. We made friends we’d never see again. Our room looked like a circus; every souvenir we bought decorated it- scarves, festival masks, candle holders. We slept, peaceful, with the balcony door open to hear the sea, we woked gently in time for the start of our day’s agenda. We bought mango margaritas and wish we’d bought more. My mom had her hair braided by the corn row lady. When we returned home, my mom said she knew I’d be fine because like everything in life sometimes, it’s about putting one foot ahead of the other, slow and easy and sometimes wearing flip flops and corn rows in your hair – until you can start to run again. “

Great advice from a smart mom …. and the author is a happy newly wed- this time with the right guy who showed up in her life!
