Easter Post

- click on image to enlarge -
Well Easter is almost here so I thought it was about time to jazz up the blog with some festive goodness (this obviously entails a frantic chicken running) - done and done.
Have a great Easter!

Free Mother's Day Poems

A mother's love determines how
We love ourselves and others.
There is no sky we'll ever see
Not lit by that first love.

Stripped of love, the universe
Would drive us mad with pain;
But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy.

How much I owe you for the kiss
That told me who I was!
The greatest gift--a love of life--
Lay laughing in your eyes.

Because of you my world still has
The soft grace of your smile;
And every wind of fortune bears
The scent of your caress.
