Twirling round in flutters like a rainbow butterfly
Sincere pride warms their hearts
It reflects outward in the dim auditorium
Joy, smiles, softness, and love on their innocent faces
Gracefully they glide like a flamingo in its natural habitat
Glistening brightly on white ice
They twirl and twirl in tutus of purple and blue
Tiny hands gloved in white
Delicate flakes of snow fall slowly to their beautiful rhythm
As the orchestra plays sensationally on
* I wrote this for the girls over a year ago, but recently found it after they performed in their first ballet recital. They haven’t stopped talking about it, so I thought to keep the excitement going by sharing this :). Thank you always!!!
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!
Oh! The little things that make them smile The mighty treasures that they (their hearts) are These little darlings blissfully called mine
Beauty is These two girls A perfect half of me& you Rushing into our hay at dawn’s call Quietly brushing our lips as night falls Beauty is These two girls A blend of my shy& your quiet Putting on a show every Saturday noon Tiny legs and hands flipping in strange directions Beauty is These two girls Part me part you all God Hugging me through time outs and more Loving me even when I say enough Beauty is These two girls A reflection of you& me
Dancing blissfully In the gleaming moon She embraces the night’s chills Warmth slowly filling her lungs As night creatures whisper soothing sounds
I feel the need to apologize to you…the past few days or perhaps even weeks I feel like I have not been on my blogging game lately, and have not interacted as much as I would like to…a huge number of comments are awaiting responses, please bear with me I will get to them in a few, I promise…
It feels like I am just finally entering the realm of motherhood even though I have been a mommy for 3 years…let me explain, the most of this year has been spent trying to find a school for the girls, and I never knew getting into preschool was a task on its own…and then their usual 1 or 2 activities depending on the season has now increased to about 3…phew!!! So it feels like I am constantly moving and there is no down time…if there is any it is spent napping with them or reciting ABC’s’…this has made it hard to blog as I would like or even write…but once we settle into the new schedule, I am most certain things will work out even better.
Now for the good news, I got an email that made my evening yesterday…if you remember this post…well, I got a message from Patty of discoveranddecour …yay!!! She explained her absence…and is thankful that we all missed and thought of her…thank you all so much…I am sure in time she will be back to blogging…
Now I am off to respond to comments:). Have a lovely rest of the week.
