Happy Mother's Day

In the rush to get out, you'd think we would forget Mother's Day. Well, technically WE didn't. Technically only my daughters and my husband forgot. They still have a few hours to make it up to me, however, and I believe Dr C invested in a gadget so there is potential forgiveness in the air.

In the meantime, a wonderful young woman from the SHRC sent me the following message:

"Mother's Love
Her love is like
an island in life's ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro' the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.

From: Mother's Day Celebration

When i read this, i thought of you straight away! Happy Mother's Day!"

To which I pass on the spirit to the mothers in my life: my own wonderful mother, my fantastical mother-in-law, my patient step-mother, and those mommy friends Kristina, Behan, Laureen, Joanne, Polly, Beth, and Keet whose support and love has touched me in so many ways.

Happy Mother's Day to you too.
