A tribute to mothers ~

A Mother's Love

Author Unknown

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

I wanted  to share just a few images that I've collected over the years
that would be perfect for a Mother's Day card!!

Being the mother to our five sons has truly been the most important,
hard and wonderful thing I've ever done and continue to do.
If I do nothing else in this lifetime...
this alone has been such a joy and honor to me.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday precious friends!
hugs and love,

Dawn, you always find the loveliest, most heart-warming images and verses. Your blog is so warm and welcoming because of it. If it's not in the heart, it doesn't show on the blog. Yours is like a welcome mat with a hot cup of tea waiting inside.

Beautiful post Dawn,
There is nothing on Earth like a Mother's love. I never understood it until I was blessed with my babies. Mothers Day is always a day of mixed feelings for me, as that is the day I lost my own Mommy 3 years ago. What I would give for another day with her. A day when we could share the love & laughter of my sweet babies. Lisa

Hi Dawn,
What a beautiful poem and I do love the sweet images. Thank you so much.I am going to use them for very special cards to my Mom and sister...Since I am not a mixed media artist, I will add some crocheted lace;)
You are so right, being a Mother is so joyful, hard, rewarding and the most important 'job' there is.
I am forever grateful for my 2 sons♥
