mothers day 2007

It made me happy to get this handmade mothers day card from my daughter today after church. The feed back was affirming and encouraging.

mothers love

M y special friend
Owl watching carefully
Telling me to be glad
Hoping to be happy
Embeded in my life
Rising like a cloud
S ing me to sleep

L istening to my stories
Oli, Kudos and my mom
Very precious to me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a mini van that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing my elderly neighbors lawn. i want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someones garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." ~Marjorie P. Hinkley
