Mom you are a shining star though the world doesn’t know your name.

You have no fancy title like Baroness or Dame.

Mom you really are a star, my mother mentor and friend.

A Nobel Prize for motherhood is what I’d recommend.

And if I won the lottery I’d share my win with you

I’d take you Mom on a spending spree each day the whole year through!

You may not be famous, as your face is known to few.

But Mom I think you are wonderful and I’m so proud of you!




P.S.  This was sent to me on Facebook today at 9 a.m. by my youngest son, Robert, followed by a phone call to say I had a surprise on my page and a wish to have a great day!  Thanks so much for the awesome poem!  I love it and you definitely made my day!  xoxo 




At 5:30 this morning, while I was still sleeping in dreamland, my daughter, Deborah, sent this text message from South Carolina to her mama!

"Happy Mother's Day!!"

"Enjoying a run on the beach.
Steve suggested the Lost Dog for breakfast
but instead, I opted for bagels & salmon on
the front porch!!
Forget the crowds!!"

This was followed by a phone call this afternoon to see if I was having a wonderful Mother's Day....which we'll be celebrating as soon as I get to SC on Tuesday!  I'm so glad I'm a mother and that Deb is a mother, too!  Two of my grandchildren, Nick and Girlie, who along with hubby, Steve, had fun celebrating with her today.

...arrived today from son, John, and Katie from Maryland.  It was beautiful and the sentiments brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart!

Thank you for making my day special.  And thanks for my three grandchildren!....If it wasn't for Mother's Day then I wouldn't be a Nana!  xoxo

The seasons come, the seasons go,
And now it's May again.
And so,  'tho winter was a bitter cup,
Now everything is greening up.
Trees and blooms have sprung again,
And all the earth seems young again,

There's a softness to our dreams,
For nothing's as good or bad as it seems,
I just want to say again,
I sure am glad it's May again!
