Mother’s Day and How I spent my day

      29 Comments on Mother’s Day and How I spent my day

I love my children every minute of every day. My beautiful children.

I gazed at you today
and the same beautiful eyes
glowed with love just
like it was
when you were a baby.

Me and 4 month old Lauren

Oh those lovely tiny eyes

It seems a long time ago
since I cradled you in my arms
long after your colic spells
and I just kept rocking you
till you fell asleep.

Me and 6 month old Marielle

What beautiful round eyes like mine

Me and 6 month old Luijoe

round and cute

I want you to always know that
in good and bad times
I will always love you.

No matter what you do
or how you act
or how you think
or what you rant about
you can depend on
my guidance, support
love and friendship
