“As we approach Mother’s Day and as I reflect on motherhood, I am most grateful for my own mother and for what she has has taught me about love and family,” she started off her sweet post.

Lynn’s main focus is the children who she says deserves to be raised well by having the adults work together, “Raising a blended family, through many challenges, to live together in harmony and raise well balanced, happy children, is not always easy but it’s possible when everyone works together, in the best interest of the youngest children in the family. Thank you mom @janet.reed2 for your never-ending love and teachings.”

Lynn acknowledged that people have their own families to care for but thanked the people previously mentioned, for their contribution in her blended family.

“To the people who make this family possible, thank you. You each have your own family and nothing can ever take away from the importance of belonging to that family, that is most important and always will be. But today, in this moment, as we celebrate mother’s and family…this family, beautifully blended, is not possible without you and the energy you bring, to make us what we are …a family.”

“Thank you for being authentically you,” she said and proceeds to mention every body.

Lynn then wished all the mother’s a wonderful day on May 9, advising them that the best gift one can give their kids is a loving family, “I pray that this Mother’s Day , every mother will feel the warm embrace and the love of her family and that her wishes for family and what she regards as family, will be respected and honoured, not just this Sunday but every day that she has remaining of her life. A loving and harmonious family is the most important gift you can give your children. Happy Mothers’s Day in advance Moms!!!”
