Mothering Sunday

Today I remember with belated and backward glancing gratitude, all those women who mothered me and in turn am truly grateful for my own forgiving children and the joy of four lively grandchildren. Thus are the generations tied to each other through the string of genes and the intangible feeling we call ‘love’, that persists even after life.

ewe and lambs in mono for mothering sunday
I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
…Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.

Christina Rossetti
