Mothers Open Their Hearts Earnestly Resplendently

Mothers Open Their Hearts Earnestly Resplendently

After writing my little blurb about my Mom, I started thinking…  In today’s society we seem to get so busy with our hectic lifestyles that we sometimes forget what our Mothers and Fathers do and did for us.  We get caught up in the “almighty dollar” and it seems sometimes we only remember how our parents corrected us or scolded us.

However, do we really remember how much they sacrificed for us?  I remember vividly – being a baby boomer – a different time and era in this beautiful world in which we live. 

I too realize that today is so much different from those days…boy life seemed and WAS so much more simplistic then – LOL.  I remember when a piece of bubble gum was a penny…and then there was penny candy!  Do you remember when gas was only about .35 cents a gallon?  I remember my parents getting all bent out of shape if gas went up a penny – alas those days are gone.

My Mom “always” cooked – we didn’t eat out a lot – always a home cooked meal.  I recall like clockwork, on Sundays she would get up early and cook dinner “before” we went to church.  And, we always had pot-roast with potatoes and carrots.  Add to that green beans, rolls and usually some kind of dessert.  Of course there was the good ole staple “iced tea.”  Funny thing back then, Mom would leave her roast on the stove cooking on low heat while we were at church.  I would “not” do that today – again it was a different time and mindsets were different as well.

I know as parents we sacrifice today – probably more-so in many different ways.  As I look back, I see the love that was displayed and given in “everything” that was done.  It could have been washing a favorite pair of jeans or shirt – or as simple as making my favorite cake – Red Velvet – whatever it was – Mom always displayed love.  Don’t worry, I have not forgotten about Fathers…they are for another day soon.

Many Mom’s have passed from this place and are missed greatly in the hearts of millions.  I know in my heart that when my Mom leaves this world – there will be a definite void in my heart, BUT I know that the love and memories that have been built and added upon throughout these years will sustain me.

Mother’s Day is @ the corner…HOW will you remember your Mom? 

It could be as simple as a BIG HUGE hug…a card…an “I Love YOU”…or maybe just a listening ear…or your presence – in her presence. 

It may also be placing a beautiful bouquet of flowers on her grave in honor of her…and a gentle little whisper or maybe out loud “Mom I love you and miss you terribly” or maybe “I wish you were here” or maybe you will quietly hold your breath and think in your heart – “Mom I miss you greatly, but you are no longer in pain or suffering.”

A Mothers Love…Still Forever Strong

Easter has passed…and Mother’s Day is upon us.  I thought it befitting to write a short poem about Mothers.  My Mom will be 74 this year and I have to state that her frame of mind is not what it used to be, and I miss her at times…I love you Mom.

Here is the short poem I penned…

A Mothers Love…Still Forever Strong

A Mothers love should never be tested

A Mothers love should never be tried

A Mothers love – it never resteth

Until a Mothers breath her last is drawn…

A Mothers love…still forever strong

A Mothers love has not an end

Like a circle it begins…and begins…and begins

nothing can replace the bond between a Mother,

Daughter or Son

Until a Mothers breath her last is drawn…

A Mothers love…still forever strong

A Mothers love stands the test of time

but a Mothers love..oh ’tis not a nursery rhyme

Yet our hearts bind tightly to every key

tightly to everything Mother said

or hoped that we could be…

Until a Mothers breath her last is drawn…

A Mothers love…still forever strong

One day her breath will become her last

and in that moment…

a present becomes a past

The sweet release of life so tender

bringing me always to remember…

A Mothers love has not an end

Like a circle it begins…and begins…and begins

nothing will replace

the love of a Mother

BUT…

Until a Mothers breath her last is drawn…

A Mothers love…still forever strong.

CROP WALK: Let’s Help End World Hunger!

Every year my church participates in a CROP Walk. 

Why?  Because each day, 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes — that’s one child every 5 seconds.  While hunger in the US is less severe than it is in many other parts of the world, it exists here.

Approximately 36.2 million people, including many children, live in a perpetual state of food insecurity: they literally do not know where their next meal will come from or even when they will be able to eat.

How can you help? You can support by donating to help to feed others.  Up to 25% of monies raised can even be used to feed local people in your community.

Anyone can sign up to walk or even start a CROP Walk!  Let’s make a difference and help put an end to world hunger.

Child Prodigy – EMILY BEAR 10 Years Old

When I started playing the piano – I was five years old.  I am not a prodigy, but hold my own well while at the piano.  I also write and compose, but I could never touch this young lady.  I love to see all types of talent; however, you don’t come across someone as talented often like Emily Bear.

She started playing and composing at the age of 2.  She is truly amazing!  She will be a definite icon in the artistic world.  Her website address is attached – a MUST visit.

She is the YOUNGEST to ever play Carnegie Hall at age 9.  WOW!

See and hear for yourself!
