The smell of fresh cut honeysuckle, iris along with a bouquet of roses and lilies fill my home on this beautiful Mother’s Day morning.
I took a moment to read from this adorable little book “Bouquets of Blessings”, which teaches the ancient meaning of flowers. We all know the meaning of roses is love, but what I didn’t know is the meaning of honeysuckle is “bonds of love, generous and devoted affection”. How very fitting that these of all flowers adorn my home today!
Just as the sweet smell of Mother’s Day fills the air, my heart is filled to overflowing with love, pride, accomplishment and satisfaction in knowing I’ve done my part in raising two amazing human beings. They’ve blessed me beyond belief and continue to bring so much joy to my world.
Austin and Micheala, you are and always will be my greatest accomplishments!
Wishing all you mom’s a beautiful Mother’s Day, may your heart and home be filled to overflowing with the sweetness of the day!
A Mother’s Love
A mother’s love is something that no one can explain-
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain.
It is endless and unselfish and enduring, come what may,
For nothing can destroy it or take the love away.
It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking.
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems.
