"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...
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknownYou wonder"Where have my children gone?"
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...

Lovely post ! Happy Mothers Day to you all.
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.

Hope you have a wonderful week.
