Sunday Serenity #126 A Salute to Mothers

My sister with newborn son in the mid 90's

My Mom arm in arm with her Mom in the mid 60s

My Dad in his Mom's arms in the early 30s

My Mom and her twin sis in her Mother's Mother's arms.

Me in the arms of my Dad's Dad's Mom in the late 50s

Below I am recycling entire the Mother's Day tribute I posted last year.

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

depends on her

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

from flapper dresses

to wedding dresses

from birthday cakes

to wedding cakes;


stage props,

rag curls,

curly tops,

smart bow ties


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
is given her rightful
right in the middle
of the picture?
