I am reminded every time
Every time I see your face
I am reminded
Your heart is joy
Your love is kind
Your touch(warmth) divine
The truth is I am blessed
Yet somehow in the midst of life
All I feel is stress
Lost in the world of back and forth
How quickly I forget
How quickly I forget the smile on two dainty faces
Faces that ask to be kissed over and over
Then some more over again
Soft dark skin forever blushing love
How quickly I forget the arms broad and wide wrapping me tight
Night after night
Sweetness and good lust whispered in eager ears
How quickly I forget my father’s words of wisdom
Timely and genuine
Quietly echoed with kindness and strength
Sound correction, profound truth
How quickly I forget the love of a Savior
Offered at will to an undeserving me
Time and time again
How quickly I forget L.O.V.E
Quiet and warm
Cheering me on
Leading me strong…
How quickly I forget
How truly blessed I am
Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing women out there! You deserve this day, and everyone in between.
I am up early as is usual, and couldn’t go back to sleep; so I decided to look through old pictures and of course they were filled with images of the girls at 6 pounds or so. Amazing how time flies and how truly blessed I am to be (their) mom. I can’t help but be truly thankful and count my very many blessings. Such a great honor mommy hood has bestowed on me, and I am sure many mothers will agree.
What is our good fortune but these ones
Who welcome, and celebrate us with I LOVE YOU
On tough hard days
And the many light ones in between
How fortunate we are
These priceless hearts
Beating love and affection
Happily calling us (their) mom
Today as we celebrate all our amazing mothers, let us go the extra step to celebrate them daily…perhaps not with all the pomp and attention today gets but still with all the gratitude and genuine love.
Have a very blessed and happy mother’s day!
I am new…
New in your august array
Dawn spreading joy quietly over me
A blanket of warmth peace and love
Birds chirping to my heart’s delight
A brand new day a brand new month
And lo & behold
What do you know…
A brand new me
*Happy new month friends, may it be a great one :). God bless*
I am learning gratitude
Cultivating its attitude
Learning to count my blessings
Each and every labored step of the way
It must always be said, it can never be said enough, and so as often as I possibly can I say THANK YOU!
For always stopping by, reading, liking, commenting, and offering your friendship & support.
In the midst of life’s chaos, and the many stresses of adulthood, this platform brings me to my centered joy. I find myself smiling like a darling child when I am reading your comments, and posts. Thank you all so much.
I have not been able to respond to all comments as I would like or visit new followers as I should, but I am most grateful.
Have a wonderful Monday and a lovely week. God bless
Thank You Always!
I like how I feel on chilly nights like this
When I crawl up in bed
Next to your warmth
Oh! The little things that make them smile
The mighty treasures that they (their hearts) are
These little darlings blissfully called mine
There is no doubt in my mind, that I am a loved girl. The wonderful messages of support and love I received following my mini meltdown last Saturday has done more than I could have ever expected or asked for.
I wrote just to ease my mind but your comments, messages,and words of encouragement did more than ease my mind, they lifted my spirits and made me truly thankful. I find myself going back to read the comments, and I cannot tell you enough how truly blessed I am to have you all in my life. THANK YOU!!!
I am truly honored to be a part of this wonderful community and I am genuinely humbled to be friends with such amazing, generous, and kind people. My heart will be forever grateful, thanks so much for making me feel better.
A big shout out to all who have followed and visited my blog in the past few weeks. I am hoping to stop by your blogs soon, and also get back to writing. Many thanks.
