MOTHER’S ARE COLORS OF THE RAINBOWS - DEDICATED FOR ALL THE MOTHER’S HERE AND BEYOND
Today it will be Dan and my 55th day of staying at home. Happy Mother’s Day to all women.
May it be your children or your pet, you give your love and comfort every day. Through generations, I’m grateful to be part of the legacy of being a woman.
Watching my own child - Danielle becoming a mother to Jonah, brought warmth to my heart. Seeing the love between the two of them melts my heart. So, today I am dedicating this blog not just to mothers, but to my daughter who everyday inspires me to became a better person and to grow. Also, my mom and Dan's mom who has given much love to us.

STRENGTH FROM MY DAUGHTER
This Sunday is Mother’s Day and I wrote this in honor of all mothers, here or gone.
Your strength of love will stay in our hearts.
As we count the days, as mothers we watch our children grow. Through our hearts we teach them to grow into adults and pray that they become the gift that was meant for them. Our children are what gives us strength to go on with excitement and share the experiences of growth. Mothers grow with wisdom as we watch our children plan their lives with the knowledge that were taught to them.
Today am grateful for having my daughter in my life, as I watch her become independent and take control of her life ~~I watch with an open heart. I have a lot of treasures to remember and will keep them stored within my mind.
This past year has been special for me for I took control with the help of my daughter to change my lifestyle and managed my cancer. She taught me to never give up and to keep a smile on my face. So today I thank her for making my life special and being there for me.
From one heart to another, may all mothers have a day of love and enjoy being a mother

SEEDS OF LOVE
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
teach me how to trust
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space*
and love beyond my fear,
and thus, Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.
*According to the Native People, the Sacred Space
is the space between exhalation and inhalation.
To Walk in Balance is to have Heaven (spirituality)
and Earth (physicality) in Harmony
Brief History, the start of the modern Mother's Day began in the United States; at the initiative of Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century. This is not related to the many traditional celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have existed throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, Rhea the Great Mother of the Gods, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration. However, in some countries, Mother's Day is still synonymous with these older traditions.
The Purest Love You Will Ever Know
Good day Sunday 🌞 Happy Mother's Day ❤️ Mother's prayers cling to our life's and follows through our journeys🌼🌸🏵️🌼
The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. St Andrew's Methodist Church now holds the International Mother's Day Shrine. Her campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother's Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world".
In 1908, the U.S. Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother's Day an official holiday, joking that they would also have to proclaim a "Mother-in-law's Day". However, owing to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, by 1911 all U.S. states observed the holiday, with some of them officially recognizing Mother's Day as a local holiday (the first being West Virginia, Jarvis' home state, in 1910). In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother's Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers. So, that’s how it all came about!

Until tomorrow, hope everyone had a wonderful day. I think that a person writes a poem because they have an inner urge of something that they want to express, and I think it's that inner urge that you want to express when you write a piece of music. Leo Ornstein
Tomorrow’s blog is on Express Yourself.
