Tomorrow is Mother’s Day! Motherhood is all about growth as a person. Little ones are good teachers about the simple pleasures in life. A peal of laughter, a burst of a song in the middle of the day. Rarely are adults as spontaneous expressing their feelings as freely.
Life isn’t all about the laughter and songs. Each child has their own challenges and needs. These little ones needs to be supported so that they don’t waver or break. Sometimes those challenges nearly break a Mother’s heart. We wish we could bear the pain, but each child must live their own life. We can only be nearby, to soothe, support and love.
Never does a Mother feel that her work is complete. No one Mother is like another, each has their strengths and weaknesses. I guess that there are really no rules to Motherhood other than unconditional love, even though society often sets standards to what a “good Mom” is. We’ll try our best with the skills and gifts we have.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the special Mother’s near and far!
“The Mother’s Gift”

The wonder of creations
The approaching time
The names of beings
The hearts lift
The new beginning
The Mother’s Gift
This year Mother’s day is an exciting time in more ways than one. It is only a matter of days or weeks that we will be welcoming a new little person into our family.
Breakfast for the special Mother in your life
The recipe is slightly adapted from Bernice’s blog, Realistic Cooking Ideas for Busy People.
Here is the link to this delicious recipe.
My recipe is a double batch, so for a smaller amount just make half of the recipe.
Whole Wheat Honey Banana Pecan Pancakes
5.9 dl/ 2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
5.9 dl/ 2 1/2 c flour
4 tsp. baking powder
4 tsp. baking soda
70 g/2.5 oz pecans chopped
1-2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
4 eggs, whisked
4 bananas, mashed
4 cups milk
4 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients and mix with the dry ingredients. Fry on a medium heat griddle and serve with Maple syrup, sliced bananas, a hug and a few Pansies for your Mother.
Happy Mothers Day, the poem is beautiful and those pancakes sound so delicious. Have a wonderful day with your family!

Have a wonderful mother’s day. I have no doubt those treasures you’ve created will come up with something to delight you, And congratulations! what wonderful news. It is a magical time when the future unfolds further for us by presenting us with another human to love.
Have a wonderful birth day, when the time arrives.
Thank you! It is an exciting time since every morning when I wake up I think, “It could be today.” The little treasures had each made a beautiful card…so touching and made the day special.
I can’t wait to hear the news when it happens. I’m a midwife, so I’m a bit of a baby junkie! 🙂
Midwives are special people 🙂
How do I always manage to read your delicious recipes in the evening, when I’m really full from dinner and anyway too lazy to go to shop for the ingredients BUT really starving for dessert… 😉
I have a similar tendency to read blogs in the evening when the house is quiet…sometimes I wish I could try something immediately!
Happy Mother’s day to you and to all the mother’s of the world. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, your recipes and your life with us.
Thank you for your kind comments, I appreciate it!
I love that your post expresses the life of a mother so perfectly; the joys and the sorrows. What wonderful news that another little one will soon be part of your loving family. Well, the little one is already a part; perhaps I should say ‘will make an appearance in your family’.
Motherhood, or maybe parenthood is more accurate tends to bring out the best and the worst, the patience and impatience in us 🙂 We are really looking forward to meeting the little one!
I hope we can too one day, when you are ready.
Happy Mothers Day my Dear!
Love, Gp, Grampa
Thank you Grampa! We had a pleasant and relaxed day with summery like weather. Love and Gp, Laila
Beautiful post! Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope you’re enjoying a very special Mothers Day.
We had a very lovely day with breakfast in bed and lovely cards. It is a day of contemplation and evaluation for myself as a Mom. 🙂
A special day for you, Hugs, Gramma
Thank you Gramma! Lots of hugs to you too! Love, Laila

Happy Mother’s Day to you (even when my greeting is late). It is always Mother’s Day anyway – mother’s day to clean, to take care of children 😉 A little boost will not hurt. 🙂
Congratulations for being a mother for the Nth time. 🙂 My prayers for you and your baby for a wonderful delivery. 🙂
