Happy Mother's Day



Mothers are the place where love
Emerges from the earth,
And happiness rings out like bells
In honor of our birth.

Mothers are the sun that lights
For life our inner sky,
So we may know that we are loved
And need not question why.

Mothers are the moon that shines
Upon our black despair,
So even when we weep, we know
That someone's always there.

Whatever fear, or stress, or pain
Might them to anger move,
We know that underneath the storm
We have, always, their love.

~ Nicholas Gordon ~


Wanted to post this up yesterday but was away. Oh well, better late than never...

Wishing all Mother's out there Happy Mother's Day, today and always!

Yes I got to herd those sheep but I was not allowed to get to close. The trainer calls it a bubble and once I reach that they begin to move. I am having to learn to be calm...
