Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming up in a few days and so I have been thinking about my mother.  She has been gone for almost 9 years already.  Just can't believe it has been that long.  In going through old letters and cards that our mother had saved over the years, I found so many beautiful Mother's Day cards that she had received from family.  The picture of our mother was taken September 8, 1946 and is one of my favorites.  She had such a beautiful smile.  

A verse inside one of the cards and written by Linda Lee Elrod says it all....

Mother--such a simple word
that means so very much... 
a little hug, a great big smile,
a warm and gentle touch.

Mother--such a simple word
to cover all the ways
she's helped you out, and picked you up,
brought sunshine to your days.

Mother--such a simple word 
for someone held so dear,
for someone who is cherished
even more with every year.

Mother--such a simple word,
and, yet, there is no doubt,
six simple little letters
spell what love is all about. 

Happy Mother's Day
