On this Mother's Day

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
if I could five you sapphires
for each truth you've helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you've known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you've shown. 
Then you'll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes. 
But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I'm sure you're well aware
So I'll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.

Today I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers and grandmothers out there.  May you have a wonderful day filled with love and brilliant sunshine.

This is going to be a short post because million things are happening at my house.  Two days ago it was my twins' birthday and today our whole family will be celebrating that plus the Mother's Day. There will be about 14 people in my house later today, three of them mothers: Myself, my Mom and my sister. Although we always get together on twins' birthday it is never on actual Mother's Day so today will be special and I'm really looking forward to it.  

My hubby gave me the most beautiful Mother's Day present in the world.  He agreed to not cut the lawns so both front and back of my house have turned into fields of dandelions in the last several days.  It's a sight to treasure and savour and I love him that much more for it.

Now I'm going to make myself a Mother's Day tea and enjoy it outside on my deck.  It's going to be a hot and sunny one out there today.
