Sunday Serenity #388: Mother's Day

Mom's 80th Birthday January 8, 2012


A Mother's Day Musing
by Joy Renee

Have you ever noticed,
while flipping the pages
in a family photo album,
how often
mothers seem to not be
in the picture?

Even though we all know,
if we consider for just
one moment,
that every breath








every bite

every step


and every bright
smile
depends on her involvement.


Maybe it's because
she was the one
taking the picture
or so busy making
stuff happen
or just
making stuff--







from matching outfits


to fully outfitted
snowmen



from flapper dresses


to wedding dresses



from birthday cakes



to wedding cakes;

picnics,


stage props,


rag curls,


curly tops,


smart bow ties

and...
matching eyes.



There needs to be,
don't you agree,
more than one day
each year when
the one who makes
it all happen,
who makes home
feel like home,
who frames all the pictures
of our earliest
memories,
is given her rightful
place...


right in the middle
of the picture?
