is unlike any other bond.
Her love never ceases, but only grows stronger with time.
Her need to protect her young from the world
changes as they grow,
but she is steadfast in her role until eternity.
A mother can process superhuman strength and courage
that she had no idea she possessed.
A mother's role is to guide, teach, love, cherish, and nurture
our little ones for the rest of their lives.
And, when the grandchildren arrive the cycle begins again
in a slightly different role.
But, we remain, watch and protect.
The job as a mother is the most important job of our lives.
We are creating our legacy through our children
and our mark will be left
for generations to come.
What lasts with me from my Mother is her courage,
strength, wisdom and grace.
She has made me the lady that I am
and I am proud to call her Mom.
May all you lovely mothers have a
Happy Mother's Day!

We are fixing a special brunch at our home
to celebrate our Mother's Day with my parents.
What are you up to today?
What special traits does your Mother possess?
