on this day




on  this day

mother's day 2011


there are so many names;
mother. momma. mom. mommy. mama.
daughter. sister. auntie. friend.
grandma. granny.



we all wear many hats
we all have many women
in our lives who
we hold dear to our hearts

my mother
who taught me
how to love
with her
loyalty,  faithfulness
and her never ending love,
she taught me
the importance of
family

a mother in law
who raised a
little boy and taught
him how to love and
become the best
husband & father ever

my daughters
who bless me
because of them
i have the best
job i will ever, ever have...
being their mom
is my most proudest
accomplishment

my two daughters
who are now
mommies themselves
what a blessing to watch
them grow and become
these amazing, dedicated
and loving mommies

on this lovely day
i pause to be thankful
for the many gifts
i have been given


what a lovely day
mother's day 2011
i will spend mine with
a family whom i
love more and more
each and every day
(is that even possible?)

i thank God
for allowing me to be a part of their lives

i pause to be thankful

may you have a
beautiful day
filled with all the joys
this day can bring

for those hurting
today for whatever reason...
i pray you will
be lifted by
happy thoughts & prayers
may you know deep in your
soul
you are loved
that this day is a gift
may you find comfort
and joy
and above all
know full well that
you, yes you
are special


happy day.

Amen to that! I am a mum of two beautiful and loving daughters, who now have children of their own, and I am SO very proud of them, and so proud that they are such caring women who are doing a wonderful job of bringing up their own children! Happy Mothers Day dear friend.
