What Did Your Mom Give You?

Tea time, tea, tea cups, tea towell

So much of Mother’s Day advertisements and conversation is about what to get Mom on her special day (we are guilty, I know, but we have such fantastic gifts on Farminista, we can’t help it). Gifts can be great, that special thing you know your mother would love and only you understand why  is based on a bond only you have with her.

Tea Time

Often you hear about breakfast in bed or a special Mothers Day brunch.  I was surprised at how touching my friend Maygen’s blog post was to me.  I love to hear how important the role of a mother is, in so many ways.  This is the time of year to make a point to let your mom know that, or someone you look up to as a mentor if you no longer have your mom in your life.  You can find the entire post on The Rooster blog, I just want to share a few quotes from the OCM girls on what they Got from their mama!

Kim Davies: “Like many mothers, mine is extraordinary beyond words. Her undeniable strength, sincerity, compassion and kindness are characteristics I aspire to exemplify. I am forever grateful to my mother, for my life as her child.”

Karyn Kimberly: “I’m grateful I received my mother’s love, patience and gentle smile.”

Susan Busse “I’m so grateful to have received my mom’s appreciation for pretty clothes (she still has four full, neatly organized closets) and more importantly, I’m grateful to have received her sense of general capability.”





Mom, sister, and Roxanne herself.

Roxanne Woodley “I love my mom’s love of nostalgia. She always has a story of how wonderful her grandma was and it reminds me to love my heritage and cherish the memories of my great grandmother and grandparents. Also, I got my moms brown eyes and I love the colour- all my kids have bright blue eyes for some reason!”


Isn’t that great?!

(note: thanks Maygen for sneaking me, my sister and my mom in there too!)
