TO THE MOTHERS

Today in the US we are celebrating Mother's Day. My own dear mother trekked  down to the Casa du Borghese for a long weekend to get out of Dodge. I treated her to some time at a lavender farm up by the lake already,  and visited Longwood Gardens for their luminary night, yesterday. I will cook her dinner today. There is no denying, a connection with our mothers is strong and can not be broken if we choose. Happy Mothers Days to all the Mother's out there, and my blog friends..... We thank you.

You are the sunlight in my day.
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon.
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me about life,
How not to fight and what is right.
You are the words inside my song.
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me.
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it's time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream.
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love.
I'm blessed, for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul.
You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song.
You are my love, my life, my mom.

  2. Oh my goodness!
    I have never read such lovely words.
    My own mum took her own life when I was thirty year old. I'm an only child and it hit me hard.

    You are a lovely person, mistress. Wish I lived nearer. We could feed the birds and visit the lavender field. X

    4. Chritina what a heartbreaking story. I too give you some hugs. It would be so fun to hang with you. I would be more then happy to feed birds and take you to the farm. I hope you had a good weekend.

  3. I love these! My mother was a toxic, mean egg donor, but I'm a semi-terrific mommy and grandma, so there! You look like your mother. A lot.

  10. On mother's day they always show cute pictures of mother animals and their babies. They never show pictures of those babies biting their mother's nipples.

  11. It was a very surreal day for me. Woke thinking, "Call mom and wish her a Happy Mother's Day." Then remembered, "I don't have a mom anymore." Weird.

    Have a lovely day!
