Happy Mothers Day....


Mothering is a fabric of moments.....
treasured shells and stones in pockets,
fingerpainting with jello,
ice-skating with shaving cream on the kitchen floor,
handcrafted halloween costumes,
mountains of Lego,
milk Carton derbys,
animals adopted under unusual circumstances,
sand castles and bird nests,
surgery on stuffed animals,
buidling sandboxes....
and as the shoes get bigger,
the adventures get bigger,
sharing old Movies and the Rolling Stones,
a love of Vintage Posters,
and Favorite Books,
and Long talks about AIDS, Orwell, and
Arthur C.Clarke and Hawkings....
And the clock seems to tick too fast....

You can only hold the time so close and so dearly ....
and hope and pray that you have given them all that they need....
**********************************
To all the Mothers and Grandmothers I hope that you have a wonderful day....one to celebrate Children and all that it take to raise and nurture them. And to many of those that have lost Mothers in these past few years, know that your mother always lives on in you....

{ Click the Title it's Carly Simon " Coming Around Again & Itsy Bitsy Spider. I love this song, because Carly made this album and gave this performance on Martha's Vinyard after her divorce from James Taylor. It is a song about Healing....and during the Itsy Bitsy Spider part her daughter and son come out and sing.....the Spider song is such a mom song.....}

Happy Mom's Day! For some reason, on Mother's Day, I always remember easter egg painting w/my mom. She was pretty creative that way. And as your list shows, everything was a learning experience...still is.

Thank you one and all....I had a very quiet day with 6-6.... (( teenagers really are not really big celebrators....that is the way of it)....

BUT for the first time in 20 years I did not clean on Sunday....that was and is a very big deal for me....


I hope you all had a wonderful day.....

I hope you, and the rest of your maternal-type readers, had a wonderful Mothers' Day--and a number of great memories to remember it by every year.
