A Rose From Me To You


Depending on what part of the world you live in, many are celebrating Mother’s Day today (Sunday, May 13, 2012). If you are -- HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

rose_51212Whether you’re a mother or not (and the four-legged, furry children do count), I’d like to share this rose with you in celebration of what I think Mother’s Day stands for. This is for the endless love, care and devotion the females of the world give to others - not just their children.

While this is not a perfect rose, we are not a perfect people. We each have our own flaws and quirky ways. But no matter how the rose (or we) look, it (and we) are still a beautiful creation. People, like the grasshopper, just have to take a closer look at us and see what we are truly like on the inside for our beauty to shine.

For those of you whose mothers are still living, I encourage you to visit with them today even if it’s just a quick phone call to say hi. For those of you like me whose mothers are no longer living, take time today to recall a fun memory or enjoy an activity that you did together. For me, I’m taking some time to relax and enjoy a good book because I got my love of reading (and collecting books) from my mother.

So, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Mother’s Day. May you create memories today that will transform into smiles later in life. And as always, thanks for stopping by.

    Sharon Tate story. I have vague recollections of that tragedy.

  7. Thank you Mason and Happy Mother's Day to you and to David Nunn's mom.

    I just voted for him for the last time today. I was happy to help but I would like to say how difficult it was for me, every time I went to the site, to look at all the pictures of the persons needing this kind of transport. Mobility awareness was a good title and I will be more aware of those needs in my surrounding.

    It's true that the mother's heart opens to more than to her children.
