LikeLike Reply Thanks!! 😀 LikeLike Reply Beautiful thoughts for Mothers Day, and Cherry Trees – my absolute favourite tree! 😀 Your poem made me think of my next door neighbours, they had their first baby six months ago, so that little one is yet to take their first steps with their Mum and Dad. But it had it’s first cold very recently – poor little thing, I heard it coughing and keeping Mum and Dad awake most of the night! She sounds like a very good mother – good mothers are very precious. I tweeted my rose image for Mothers Day, with a tiny micropoem – so you can have this one as you are a lovely Mother – Happy Mothers Day Brenda – hope you’ve had a good day!!♥ https://twitter.com/SuzyHazelwood/status/597429411596623872 LikeLike Reply “Only a rose will do for the one who has given so much” That is lovely, Suzie!! I agree, a rose is a perfect flower to symbolize the love of moms. My son gave me a card that made me cry. This is what it said on the front: “You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known, but even that is an understatement. — F. Scott Fitzgerald.” I might cry again now. I’ve had a great day!! XOXO LikeLike Reply Aahh…how truly gorgeous!! Yes, cry again and again, moments like that are well worth some worthy tears – how lovely!!!♥ So pleased you had a great day Brenda!! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hapee Mother’s day!
