Celebrating Mother's Week

A Mother
A Mother is one who
understands the things
you say and do
Who always overlooks
your faults and sees the
best in you
A Mother is one whose
special love inspires you
day by day.
Who fills your heart with
gladness in her warm
and thoughtful way.
A Mother is all these things
and more-the greatest
treasure known.
And the dearest Mother in
all the world is the one I
call my own.

Sunday is Mother's Day and I thought instead of just celebrating our mother's one day this week we could celebrate all week. I am going to celebrate my mom all week from a distance because I will not be able to be with her on her special day. I was thinking of a beautiful breakfast or maybe a ladies tea, perhaps gift ideas, and who knows what else. I think it will come to me in the next few days.

In the meantime, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and that you have a fabulous week!


  1. Good morning my most special friend!

    I do believe in celebrating ALL WEEK LONG TOO. Thinking of my mom is a special way for me to keep her alive in ME.

    I appreciate you so much my friend. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR KIND VISITS! Now off to school I go.....Anita

  2. Elizabeth, what a wonderful idea, to celebrate Mother's Day all week. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

  3. This is a beautiful post.
    I will cherish all the beautiful "memories" I have of my mother and celebrate her wonderful spirit in my heart...
    Thank you so very much for your kind words and for stopping by.
    Wishing you a beautiful Mother's Day and a wonderful week!

  4. How beautiful, dear Elizabeth...
    I have tears in my eyes after reading this poem, which rings so true for my mom. I was blessed with a mother who inspired the best in everyone she touched.
    Celebrating all week is indeed a marvelous idea, sweet friend!
    These are beautiful paintings...
    On to the next post :)
    Love and hugs,
