A Mom's Hug

When I think
of all 
that my mom has done 
for me, 
my brothers, 
our spouses, 
all of our children 
and now for her great-grandchildren....
Why am I not surprised 
that rarely does she not have 
a child in her lap......
or two or three....
and sometimes a dog 
or two 
thrown in? 

Much to my dad's chagrin, rarely does the word "no" come to her lips.  She has a huge heart and shares it with all.

No matter how big or small!

She was born into an Italian family and she is almost always in the garden or in the kitchen cooking.  She is never happy unless she can feed you or load up a bag with goodies to take home. 

Trust me, she can still cook AND direct a house full of people -  all while doling out love to the little ones.

I wonder if she realized when she first met my dad, that her world would be so full of love?

Thanks for being you MOM!!  Happy Mother's Day.....

Mom & Me

PS - I think this tag was made for mom.
