Happy Mother’s Day!
May 11 2008

Happy Mother’s Day!  I put this poem I wrote for Mother’s Day in a previous post, and wanted to share it again here.  I hope you enjoy it along with a picture taken by a good friend of mine, Sandy Blanchard.

 

Motherhood and Childhood

What does it mean to be a mother?
Is it love?
Is it fear?
Is it feeling dear?

What does it mean to be a child?
Is it love?
Is it joy?
Is it having a favorite toy?

As mothers we hope for our child’s happiness
We pray for our child’s health
We hope they are treated with kindness
We pray our children find peace in the world

As children we live for today
We anticipate a life of fun
We hope for a million tomorrows
We cannot imagine a world without our mothers

As mothers we cannot imagine a world without our children
We are one and the same…

    Wonderful poem! To me, being a mom means that you’ve made a difference to the most important people in the entire world…your kids.

    Enjoy,

    @Barbara – thanks. That is so true about making a difference to the most important people — your kids. If you do right by your kids, then you do right by the world. :-)

    @fred wilson – thanks! I was flying back from CA yesterday but had some nice mother’s day things and hugs when I returned.
