╰♥.☆.♥╮ .Mother's Day ╰♥.☆.♥╮

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring.

The celebration of Mother's Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood)

The modern American holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908

Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach
in your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your brow
when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside your laughter.
She's crystallized in every tear drop.
She's the place you came from,
your first home...
She's the map you follow
with every step that you take.
She's your first love
and your first heart break...
and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space...
Not even death...
will ever separate you
from your mother...
You carry her inside of you...

Today is actually my own Mother's birthday and since she was born in 1908 I thought that it would be very fitting that I did the start today, in her honour.
She gave me so much a great start in life and provided me with a wonderful family - may the angels take as good care of her as she did us ♥

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

And Grandma's too...
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she's a mother too, you see....
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.

Both Sides Now (A True Love Story) by Shawn Inmon (Biographies & Memoirs)

Do you remember your first love?

When Dawn moved from Southern California to rainy, rural, Washington state in 1976, love took a backseat to worries about fitting in at her new school. Over time, her friendship with the boy next door grew until she realized she had found her first love without ever looking for it. Their sweet romance turned sour in 1979, and she said good-bye to that first love, apparently forever.

Twenty seven years later, a chance run-in led Dawn to question whether or not first love can really last and if she can find her own happily ever after. If you remember your first love, what it was like growing up in a small town where everyone knew your secrets, or the simpler times growing up in the seventies, you will find much to relate to in Both Sides Now.

Both Sides Now is a standalone true story that is a companion piece to the best-selling memoir Feels Like the First Time. They can be read separately or in any order.

This is her story.

It's Time to go to School
One early morning, a lady went in to wake up her son. "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school!"
Son: "But why Mom? I don't want to go."
Mom: "Give me two reasons why you don't want to go."
Son: "Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!"
Mom: "Oh, that's no reason to not to go to school. Come on now and get ready."
Son: "Give me two reasons why I should go to school."
Mom: "Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Principal!"

Thank you so much, another pair of eyes was definitely appreciated.
I do hope that you are feeling better today and that the weather treats you kindly, and the dogs and horses behave - all in all I wish you a happy Sunday

Hi Karl
Still turning up with a bright show of humour I see, yeah - nice to see you, are you going to be able to have a relaxing Sunday ?
I hope that you are feeling stronger each and every day.

BubbaK, you are especially in my thoughts this day. God bless you.

In reply to an earlier post on May 11, 2014 4:32:39 AM PDT
Thank you, red! The forecast is about as good as it's going to get before October, only 30 percent chance of rain, less than 90 degrees F, humidity will eventually fall under 100 percent sometime today . . .

I do feel better. Everyone was happy to see breakfast. I think it is their favorite time of the day. You'd think they were all starving, but two of the dogs tend to be overweight and the horses are just exactly right. One dog could stand to gain a few pounds, and he's the one who doesn't care about food.

Hello, Karl.

The Bridge by Kay Bratt

In present day China, an old woman's house sits opposite an ancient bridge. Not just any bridge--but a special one because it has always been known as 'The Lucky Bridge.' In olden days, it was said to bring a traveler good luck if walked over during a marriage ceremony, or at the beginning of the New Year. Because of its reputation, over the years it has also became a popular place for young mothers to abandon their children. What to some may seem cruel, is in reality a mother's final gift to their offspring--one last chance to send their baby off to a new destiny with luck on their side. Jing, an old woman, is the unofficial... and often reluctant, guardian of the bridge. Because no one else will do it, Jing often steps in to prevent the children from frostbite, abuse and hunger. Then she delivers them safely to an orphanage. This has been her burdensome routine for many years, but what will the old woman do when the latest child--a blind boy--burrows too deeply into her heart...

Read 'The Bridge' to see how Fei Fei's life is changed by the love of a lonely old woman. The Bridge is a short story of 17,000 words, approximately 72 pages. Fei Fei's character is based on a real orphaned boy that Kay Bratt met during her time in China.

Don't miss Kay Bratt's new bestselling series, 'The Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters:'

* The Scavenger's Daughters (Book 1)
* Tangled Vines (Book 2)
* Bitter Winds (Book 3)
* Red Skies (Companion novel, can be read anywhere within the series)

* And her bestselling memoir: "Silent Tears: A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage."

From the Author
There are some moments in your life that stay with you forever. The boy in this story was a part of one of those times. If I close my eyes, I can still see the curve of his brown, rounded cheek and the flutter of his eye lashes with each emotion he felt. His chubby hands, wrapped around the rails of a child's bed, clutched tightly to protect himself from the unknown and dark world around him. I think that when I am old and gray, I will still think of this boy, and hope that somehow in some place, he found the family he needed and the peace he deserved.
