A Mother's Love

These photos were taken shortly after our precious daughters were born. 
One in 1985, one in 1989...If you didn't know, you might think they were twins!
Words cannot express the joy that comes with having daughters.

A Mother's Love
by Helen Steiner Rice
A Mother's love is something that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain.
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking.
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems . . .

It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation.
A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

To My Mom and to My Daughters,
Best wishes for a Wonderful Mother's Day!
