why should I care.

For one solitary moment today I was a child again, and could not believe I have these three fabulous kids of my own. Thank you dear friends here who have written in with wishes, I thank you, and wish you and yours, your homes and lives, your moms and grandmoms, your neighbours moms,everyone – I wish you a good life, really truly, every good thing.
Am grateful for the joy of being mom at all – we had a seven year pause with no kids – I know how it feels to have no kids. For those who long to be moms, and it never happened, I really really want to say, the best we can be is humane.
I saw your smile in the shimmer of the ocean
I heard your voice in the bird's song
I sensed your gentle being in the wind
and you hugged me when the rain came.

of hepatica we brought to your hospital room
on the morning of your last day, Mother's Day…
