It's funny at first when I'd hear my Mother's words from my mouth...I'd cringe a bit...Not anymore....I feel blessed beyond words to have a mother who cared so deeply for her family, and still does. ( she has ten children, and over forty grandchildren!)


                      I wrote this in the card I gave her today....

When I choke up at the certain part in the story...
I am my mother.
When solace is tending gardens and healing comes from the earth's soil...
I am my mother.
When I marvel at how fresh the laundry smells and how nicely the damp shirts iron up...
I am my mother.
When I linger over my coffee after most everyone has left the table...
I am my mother.
When I stay home with a good book for real comfort 
I am my mother.
When I set aside my own agenda, in turn caring for someone else
I am my mother
When I give practical gifts with the knowledge of how useful they will be
I am my mother.
When I hear me say words like "yes it's warm but the wind is still cool."
I am my mother.
When I continue loving through times of heart ache.
I am still my mother.
I am not yet; but slowly on my way of becoming....
My mother.

                           Her price is far above rubies...
                                               Proverbs 31:10        


  1. just read this at moms. Very nice!

  2. That is a very lovely post, Lucy. I used to chuckle when I heard "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, I am my Mother, after all." Now I don't chuckle so much anymore. We truly are our mothers, good and bad aspects! And we are so blessed. A most wonderful Mother's Day to you. Susan

  3. Your words to your mother are precious! I hope that you all had a lovely Mother's Day, filled with sweet memories and today's memory-making moments!

  4. This is very nice, Lucy. I was just thinking about this lately. I used to shake my head when someone would say to me, "you're just like your mother." Now, I am honored. The things we learn as we get older. Your mother raised a very lovely daughter. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. And I love that picture of you and your children below.


  5. So sweet! I love it when people say I remind them of my mom :)

  6. Lucy, I so enjoyed this beautifully written poem in honour of your beloved mother. How true your words are for those of us who feel the same way. Yes, we are becoming our mothers, as our mothers did before us, and our daughters will do after. A lovely, heartfelt tribute; thanks so much for sharing.

    Happy weekend!

    P.S.: We didn't get any rain after all, in the end, this week, but I sure hope it will drizzle a little, as I am still waiting for the debut of my sister's peonies!


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
