Happy Mother's Day

This post is dedicated to all our wonderful mothers, without whose unselfish, love and devotion our lives would be forever changed.
"Happy Mother's Day", I hope your day is filled with loveliness.



"A Mother holds her children's hands for a while.......their hearts forever."

You Were There

You were there when we took our first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until our steps took us out the door...

You worry now "Are they ok?"
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknown
You wonder"Where have my children gone?"

Where we are is where you have led us,
With your special love you showed us a way,
To believe in ourselves and the decisions we make,
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.

And where we go you can be sure,
In spirit you shall never be alone,
For where you are is what matters most to us,
Because to us that will always be home...

I miss Mom. She was a rock. Thank you for remaining faithful and visiting during my down time. I'm beginning to feel better, and to start visiting all of my friends again.

Yes, here's a clap for all mothers everywhere. We celebrate this in March in England although it was April this year, as you know. I liked your picture and poem as always.
I hope that you too are having a lovely day.
