Happy Mothers Day

Fun Mom
Being A Mom
I didn't know  love, until my child was born
that unconditional feeling, vulnerably worn
Holding next to my heart, every blink and squeak
the biggest proponent to making me weak
Church Lady
A love so distinct it can't be described
A feeling unknown until  it  arrived
It's a yank and a tug, a tear and a smile
as my heart did a jig that first little while
Elly the Exerciser
Chest pounding with pride, my baby in tow
  elevated elation where ever I go
Excited each morning for that first bill and coo
Propelled by the love, it invades all I do
Garden Mom
 As years went  by I found  joy in each stage
with new experiences on each turning page
Many things  she taught me, all quite profound
Even as an adult she continues to  astound
Tina the Teacher
The love for my child trumps all things
the sound of her laughter heals all stings 
Her chosen partner is my child now too 
For him there is nothing I wouldn't do!
Mothering may be difficult, eating all your time
The continuing reward is beyond sublime
 the friendship, the honour, the love I've received
Was nothing I could have  possibly ever  conceived!
I'd like to wish all who celebrate Mothers Day
this Sunday a Very Happy day doing 
what you love!
Whether you have fur babies, relatives you
care for, or even elderly parents you love 
dearly.  A Mothering  nature is a gift to 
the world! You should celebrate!
I was a Mother Spirit long before I had my child!
 My daughter is the same! Every single day I
am grateful for the love of my child!

 Being a mom has been the best thing that ever happened
to me! I am ever grateful to have the honour of
raising such an amazing spirit who has brought me
so much joy! 
Thank you daughter for marrying the kindest most loving man ever!
Thank you for teaching me to live in the moment more!
To enter a situation with a clear slate and no expectations!
Thank you for loving me so well with my many flaws!
Thank you for taking time to know what I love and
for bringing so much joy to my life every single day!
Mothers Day is my favorite day to celebrate because 
Cupcake and Beardo make me so proud to be a MOM!

What is your favourite day to celebrate?

Sherrie, your delightful images always brighten my day. Today, however, it is the very clever and loving poem you have created that has my attention. You have so well described what being a mother is all about. I was glad that at the end of the post you mentioned those who mother fur babies or elderly parents. I am with you on that. The mothering, nurturing spirit is found not only in biological mothers. Have a wonderful weekend.

Carol said...

Happy Mother's Day! Love the post and all of the fabulous art :) Cupcake is one lucky lady to be blessed with you as a mother!

Hello Dear Giggles! And I know you will have a wonderful Mother's Day with your little family. I love all the different types of mom"s in your paintings today. I always enjoy your writing, too!

Beth Niquette said...

I just love your artwork. It always makes me smile. I know what you mean about being a Mom. It is one of the greatest adventures of my life. Even though they are grown and gone--they are always close to my heart and in my prayers. They are such great kiddos.

All your ladies are lovely today! Church lady is a bit glum, maybe the sermon was very serious and possibly too long? Of course I like Garden Mom, how happy is she! Love the young Elly too, does she not look a little like Cupcake?
Your love and admiration for your daughter and son-on-law is so touching.
Favourite day? I rather like celebrating the ordinary, or every-day day.

Lynn Cohen said...

Happy Mother's Day!
My daughter and I also love Mother's day.our tradition for almost two decades is to go to the Spring Dance Convert at our alma mater, where she minored in dance (& I in music) someone this weekend. They have a fabulous program, and this marked the 40th anniversary of a dance program there, so there was a dance alumni party.

We loved every number this year! First we go to Burgerville for hamburgers on gluten free buns, with fries from a dedicated fryer!! A fun treat! Her 11 & 16 year old daughters come too ...
Xxx Nadya

Oh, yes! Who knew motherhood would bring so much fun, anguish, humility, selflessness, patience, and sheer joy? Great poem.

Granny Annie said...

I was very touched by your wonderful poem! It's beautiful to find all these feelings and impressions written down there on your lovely blog I had as well during the years when my son grew up. Many thanks for sharing this marvel together with the fantastic illustrations. I especially love your mom on a bicycle :)
