It was a wonderful Mother's Day. One of the nicest I can remember. It was a perfect combination of feeling loved and appreciated and loving and appreciating the important mothers in my life. I have been so lucky/blessed/fortunate to have the mother I was given at birth AND the mother I was given in marriage. Such incredible women who show me daily what it means to be a mother and what it means to love.
For Mommy and Me Monday I am posting pictures of my mom and me along with one of my favorite poems. I am so thankful for my mom and hope that I can be as kind and loving and supportive and fun and inspirational to my children as she has always been to me.
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
