Mother's Day Blessings to all the wonderful Mom's. And to all the Mom's in your life.

MY MOTHER KEPT A GARDEN

~author unknown~

My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it's start.

She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...

And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

Thank you both for your replies to my recounting in #87 some of the many, many blessings with which Our Lord has lightened my walk.

Learning so early in life that He is available 24/7 and yearns for us TO communicate with Him often set the stage for ease with that.
Rather than some unapproachable Greek or Roman or Norse god with a little 'g,' to me, He was there whenever I spoke to Him, whether I realized it or not.
Looking back, most of those times were when I was driving alone in a car!!
It, however, did not matter what the setting or my physical position before Him was, other than a sincere desire to be in His Presence.

That was usually prompted by my admiring the Creations in the landscape du jour, as I praised and thanked Him, and I came to realize fully how very true it is that He inhabits our praises!
[[The car was not the actual *vehicle* for discussions - just my *appreciation* of the world I was seeing! He is available wherever we are..:)]]

I am wonderfully blessed and I know it,
and want to shout it from the rooftops!

Billie, I love this gif you created for me - -

He indeed does, and I know it..:))

"I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me"

Oh, Colleen, how very beautiful and poignant this is, especially to those of us who lost their mother early in life, as did you and I.
Just the other day I came upon my mother's last letter to me, written in 1964.
I was in Fairbanks, Alaska and she wrote how much she wished I were there in Florida having a cup of coffee with her, as we often had. I had lived with my parents for 4 1/2 years after a disastrous first marriage.
They never complained nor critized me, and had allowed me to be the mother to my little fellows, and they remained the grandparents.

Just weeks later she was stricken by a burst aneurysm, and passed away in 1965, with my never having seen nor heard her voice again.
While the missing her part is tremendous, greater still is my appreciation of the wonderful human being she was...she never, ever raised her voice to my sisters or me, and we genuinely wanted to please her in every way.

To all those who expressed here Mother's Day greetings, thank you.

"may all the love you've given your children be returned three fold on this your special day. : )"

For days I have been posting about the many blessings through my children and stepchildren, Wolfie.
More recently, my stepson married, describing his bride as "a lady and GODly woman" - she was a widow with two children.

The relationship with my stepdaughter has slowly transformed since Thanksgiving, and is now full and happy, she sending a Mother's Day card that reached me yesterday, and a gift!

We cannot change the tragedies of the past, but we can extend love and kindness and forgiveness and find something even richer in relationships.
