a day of honor
I miss you Mom
a day does not go by that I do not reach out to call you
I hold the phone in my hand ..and then I remember you have gone home.
Mom you gave me life ...a life of joy and strength fortified by a legacy of women united
a circle of radiating energy supporting the future by cradling their precious young in a warm embrace of indescribable love
I miss you Mom..sweet lady and the rock of our entire family
yet I know you are here with me
daily guiding my heart
to hold and embrace my children and their children
as they unfold their wings to fly and make the world a better place.
I love you Mom...everything I am I owe to your dedicated heart of courage
stand when the legs are weak
speak when no one dares to recognize an injustice
dedicate my life to those I love
protect the smallest of small
celebrate this moment in time.
A potted zinnia hand painted by my three year old grandson and granddaughter
royal purple marks that speak to my heart
as I witness a new tomorrow's dawn.
You will change the world. Imagine and Live in Peace,
Happy Mothers Day to all the dedicated mothers...you are so loved.
