Share the Joy link up #10
What makes a Mother?
I posted the quote below as part of my Daily Joy Instagram Project yesterday because it really resonated for me, not least because it was Mother’s Day here in the UK (I know my US readers have to wait another couple of months – sorry!). Oprah Winfry, that powerhouse of wisdom, also said: “Biology is the least of what makes a Mother” and, particularly in the light of the, in my opinion, justified furore around D&G this morning, ain’t that the truth?! (Without the medical miracle of IVF I would not be a mother myself.)
I salute all Mothers (and Fathers), whether they are gay, straight, natural or assisted. ‘Motherhood’ is a gift in whatever form it’s received. And it isn’t just who we are – it’s what we do, every day.
Right, off my soapbox, and on to the link up!

Sharing my joy
Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ve also made a where you’ll find all my favorites in one place).
Last week when I started reading , I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a post that would make me smile! But this post from Maria at Collecting Moments (a new and fab find for me) actually gave me a real lift! She’s a bit wise that Maria.
I’d also like to give a special mention to the fabulous Mirka from All Baby Advice who celebrated 6 years blogging in Happy 6th Blogiversary to All Baby Advice – woo hoo!
This week I’m sharing a post that’s about letting go of the neat freak in me, just going with the flow – literally! – and Making the time for Pouring.
