A Mother was born...



"The moment a child is born, the Mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the Mother, never. A Mother is something absolutely new." ~Rajneesh

I am your daughter...

"Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,


Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,


Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,


But only one Mother the wide world over."


~George Cooper

Oh, how beautiful!! Mother's Day coming up is always strange for us - both of our mothers have passed away and we have no children. I do call those women in my life who have been like mothers to me, when my own mother was unable to. It's a bittersweet day for me. I hope it is only sweet for you!!! Much love, Silke

This is so profound and clear, I am so taken back by it. How true....and how amazing that these things escape us in our busy, daily and hurried lives. It is only in reflecting and stillness can anyone utter such truth. How I long for some quiet moments to help my though processes become more lucide.

Thank Amy for this gift today! Bisous mon amie, Anita

This is so true! And so appropriate for this Mother's Day weekend. Sadly I have no mom in my life, just my children to make the word "mother" special for me! Thanks for reminding me of that, you definitely are an angel - you know that, right!!! xoxo blessings, deb :)

Hello Ms. Amy,

What beautiful words for a special weekend. Wishing you well on your special day.

I can relate to Silke's comment. My mother too has passed on and I have no children but I have mothers in my life who are special and still here so I will be joyful for them and nieces and nephews who continue to put a smile on my face. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

So beautiful and absolutely true. Although I'm not a "mother", I have a wonderful dog, and until I had him to love and adore, I didn't really understand some aspects of being a mom. Now it get it, a little. I miss my mother so - she's in Georgia and I'm in Illinois. Happy Mother's Day to you!!!

These watercolors are just gorgeous. As if they were taken from a faeries dream. I know the post is about mother's day, and the words are definitely beautiful, but those paintings really made my evening. Thank you. :)
