Happy Mothers Day!

For all of you that know how to Nurture, Love, and Care...

For all of you that empty yourselves and give in abundance... And understand the meaning of 'being there no matter what' and 'no matter how long it takes'...

For all of you who know the power of a smile, a touch, an encouraging word, when to hold on a little longer, and when to let go...

whether you have kids, whether you care for someone else's, whether you are a Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Godmother, Teacher, older sister, Care provider, Mama to your four-legged babies...

Happy Mother's day...

and now let's get Real: No one says it quite like Animal!
... and may you get spoiled like Miss Piggy!

My Patchwork Family Through Adoption

A Bit of Africa and China
Came knocking on our door
And in a home where there was longing
Now empty rooms no more

Like a Quilt of Many Colours
Our Family stitched together into One
God's Love and Grace for us Abundant
In the Miracle of our Sons
