|My beautiful girls on a fall farm tour.|
Mother's Day is a time for reflection, nostalgia, and appreciation for the blessing of children in our lives. National Children's Day in the USA is June 10, 2012, a day that revives, celebrates, and commits to our children and their future.
I wrote a poem about my daughters over ten years ago. I'll share it with you, dear readers, today.
Today she smiles at me--
the same smile I saw at three.
Her sparkling eyes reveal the mischief
still insider her.
The glow of excitement on this day reminds me
of her childish joy on Christmas mornings.
Her exhilaration is as difficult to contain
as if she were ready to blow out the candles
on her birthday cake.
I see and remember the little girl who lives
still in this beautiful young woman,
as I adjust her bridal veil.
