Happy Mother's Day!!


Mother's day is just not Mothers.  It is also for the ones who are Aunts, Grandma's, Nana's, Foster Mom's, Mentors, Godmother,sisters or someone who you can look up to and consider someone like a mom.  You don't have to have only had a 2 legged child be a Mom.  You may have furry children, you may be a caregiver, it is all the same...it is the mothering instinct.  Mom was raised by her mom basically without a father, and on father's day she used to always give her a Father's Day card, b/c in her mind she was not only her mother but also her father.  She did both roles.  So today I also look to the Father's that play the role of the mother as well as the Father.  Happy Mother's Day to you. 

I hope everyone's day is blessed with love and laughter!

Hope you enjoy the poem!


A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
