Happy Mother's Day

Something that started as a surprise
Came and went with the same demise

The story unfolding deep in my brain
Growing old won't be the same

One less chair at the table
One less horse in the stable

Hole is growing wider and deeper
The mountains are bigger and more steeper

The journey continues to the end
With stops along the way to mend

The broken wings and down cast stares
And the shoes with all its wears

In the arms of my Oak, I bury my story
There it will remain to grow into all its glory

Let it keep growing as tall as can be
So no matter the path I can still see

That my seed grew up to mark my way
And to remind me to be grateful everyday

Don't Quote Me But....

"Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith."
-Margaret Shepard

I LOVE quotes! They light my way in dark valleys and shield my eyes from the brightness of too much happiness. It has been quite a long time coming for basking in the rays of happiness but I feel something good on the horizon. Every winter must eventually come to an end!

What's my latest project? I can't say just yet! But believe me you will be the first to know!

What's your favorite quote?
