Mother o' Mine

This Sunday is one of the most special days of the year. It is the day we, on this side of the pond, celebrate moms. Yup, Mother's Day! Of all the roles I play, Mom is my favorite. This picture is a couple of years old now but here are my four babies with my lovely Mom (and Dad) and their little cousin (in plaid).
In honor of this day, here's a poem by Rudyard Kipling that is short and sweet but says it all:

Mother o' Mine
If I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!

If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine! 

So to all mom's out there - Have A Fabulous Day!!!
