Happy Mother's Day!!

I am giving my mom a homemade card for Mother's Day...something I haven't done for years. I used the following poem (found on this website) and a photo from our March 2006 trip. The photo was taken in the grounds of the Villa Borghese, and is of mom admiring the almond (I think?) blossoms.

God's Masterpiece Is Mother

God took the fragrance of a flower...
The majesty of a tree...
The gentleness of morning dew...
The calm of a quiet sea...
The beauty of the twilight hour...
The soul of a starry night...
The laughter of a rippling brook...
The grace of a bird in flight...
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply - Mother.

- Herbert Farnham

What a beautiful and serene scene of your Mom admiring the flowering trees! And how lovely that you're giving her a handmade card. I have saved all the ones my two kids made for me and all the cards my Mom has sent me after I got married. They are my treasures.

Happy Mother's Day to you and your Mom!

What a beautiful photo and how cool is it that she was wearing pink that day! Hope you had a wonderful Mother's day.

Hi Anne, that's a very beautiful photo of your mom. I really liked that poem and it goes so well with your photo. Very nice!

Thank you so much for sharing.
