Mom you are like a beautiful boundless flower
Kind, caring, and loving.
Even at night when you close up
You are still watching
There is only one word to describe you-Mom
Chitter wrote that little poem for me when she was 10 years old. It still makes me smile. I wish all you Mothers a Happy Mother’s Day and I hope this day is full of smiles for you.
Here in Appalachia we have a tradition of wearing a certain color flower depending on if your Mother is still living or not. Red or pink for a living Mother, white in remembrance of a Mother who has passed away.
