Mother’s Day, 2016

Mother’s Day 2016

This is a gift to my Friends who are also Mothers.

I read about your joys and fears.

I read your dreams for your children and about your struggles
to do what’s best for them.

One does not have to have give birth to a child to be a Mother.

All it takes is the instinctive desire to nurture and protect the future.

To you who always do your best and often think you’ve failed.

This flower is a gift in your honor.

  1. This is so very lovely and thoughtful of you, Robert! Thank you from my heart! I wasn’t around a lot so I am sorry, I only see it now! But I am not less thankful and touched. Thank you, dear friend!

      1. Thank you Rob it is very kind of you! If I use some of your photos I will let you know before. When I post it on the blog I will also credit your photo as inspiration for my watercolor 😉

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers that I am connected to. Those I know & those who follow me & my story. What Rob says is true: many of us have never given birth to children, but we have nurtured the talent of many; been a shoulder to cry on & given maternal advice. We have stepped in when mothers asked us for their help & stepped away when it was no longer needed.
    I can only shout “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY” to the heavens as my mother left this world a short time back, but I will never forget all that she taught me . . . 😉 <3
    Peace, love & motherly nurturing to all,
    P.S. My novel deals with several mothers & the way they show love to their offspring. 😉 <3
    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can watch it on her Home page: Or go to YouTube & type in the title of her novel! 😉 <3
