Albany- Jamie Wright says everyday is Mother's Day for her. She takes a moment to play with two year old Jenny Lynn, and three year old Ashley Michelle as she waits for her four year old son to arrive at the Chehaw Play Park.

"I enjoy it. It keeps me busy, so I don't ever have a dull moment at home," say admits. "They'll be growing up together and I can have my free time when they turn 18. It won't be that much longer. They're not going to be little forever,"

That's why Wright says she couldn't think of any better way to spend Mother's Day than to do something that would make her children smile.

"It's not about me it's about them, so I'm just blessed to have them. Look at them. They're beautiful, if I say so myself. I'm just blessed that God gave them to me."

Just a few feet away 82 year old Anna Belle Newton is counting her blessings as well. "I have two wonderful children, and I have two grandchildren, a one great-grandchild."

She doesn't have a favorite Mother's Day gift, but says her mom did.

"If she didn't get a geranium on Mother's Day she was disappointed. She loved geraniums," Newton smiles. But just being able to spend the day with three generations of children is good enough for Newton, although, she did receive a special card from her son.

"In it says I should be very happy I was a triple crown mother. I was a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother, and I thought that was so sweet."

So, it seems while mom's are happy to be showered with gifts on Mother's Day, they agree the best gift they could ever receive is the one they already have, their children.
