Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


Dedication to my late mother....

PHOTO HUNT
Theme: Mother/Mom


Mothers and daughters
Were daughters and mothers
Not so long ago.
We give and take
And take and give
Along time's endless row.

Love is passed
And love received
To be passed on again:
A precious heirloom
Twice, twice blessed,
A spiritual cardigan.

I'll put it on
And treasure it,
The me I have received,
And when the roles
Reverse again,
I'll have what I most need.

So may our love
Go on and on,
A hundred thousand years;
Mothers and daughters,
Daughters and mothers,
Through joys and other tears.




MY MOTHER
ME
and
IRENE

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

  19. Thanks for your comment on the photo of my Mom. I was surprised how beautiful it was. It was just a quick photo while she was watching TV the other day. I hadn't yet gotten the curtains up in my new office/lounge in our new abode and I wasn't sure if it would turn out.

    A note on the poem on your post.

    My mother keeps saying "I wish I could do more. I feel badly that you have to do so much..." I have to keep reminding her that she looked after me for a long time when I couldn't "help out"....

  20. What a lovely poem about mothers and daughters!
    Thank you for visiting my PH-post. All of my older family photos are pictures from neagtives or slides. I wanted to show a picture of my mother, but I'll have to work it in at some later date.
    I am using my very much neglected Swedish-language blog for PhotoHunt today. So even if I sign as "Tina" I am also "Anna" of Anna's Adornments as well as Sara Cat.
    Hugs,
    Tina

  26. Anni that was just lovely...I love that poem! And what a clever way to describe motherhood as a cardigan! A little bit like Josephs Technicolor dream-coat (coat of many colours) A mothers coat is a coat of many roles.
    Have a fabulous Mothers Day Anni
