I am reblogging this post from Mother’s Day 2012 in honor of Mary. She was the mom of one of my High School friends who passed away last week. She was one of my “Other Mothers”. You know the type who will happily step in and tell you “Yes” and “No” when you need it?
My love and prayers are extended to her kids, Billie-my fellow Class of ’78 graduate who I still call friend, Dawn, Julie and Pat. May God give you peace and bring comfort and love.
Mother earned the love drawn in the twinkle of her eyes and carved in the curve of her happiness. Her cherished brood is enveloped in a reverently woven mantle, fiercely protected and treasured.
I’m linking up with Trifecta for Trifextra: Week Sixteen. The challenge goes like this:
This weekend’s Trifextra is the first of its kind. This weekend we only need 32 words from you, because we’re giving you the 33rd. Your challenge is to write anything you want, in whichever form you please, so long as your response is exactly 33 words and includes the word “mother.”
