To Our Wonderful Mothers

This post is dedicated to all of 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 much 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 don't know how many more Mother's Day posts I can read. They are all so touching. I think that I have been through an entire box of tissues already. While I can still type without shorting out the keyboard, let me take this chance to wish you a very happy Mother's Day.

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Hello Jo
This poem is such a lovely tribute to our Mothers - thank you.
Mine has been gone 12 years now and if I could wish for one thing it would be to have her by my side once more....

I've just found your lovely blog via Maggie - and now I've become your newest follower.

Do pop over and see me and I'll get out my prettiest teacups and we can chat about all things english over a cup of tea and an anzac biscuit - or two!!!

Hope you have a wonderful week.
