Happy Mother’s Day to

all those who play roles in

loved one’s lives by ~

Brightening our existence!

Hot pink is mentioned

often when reflections 

of my Mom come up. 

This is to say, she is still

funny, lively and good company.

She recollects much of the past,

Vague recollections of our “now”

and still remembers to say

to many who are around 

her, “I like your blouse!”

or add as she passed someone

on the sidewalk on our sunny walks,

“Have a wonderful day!”

She hums and knows some of 

“Que Sera Sera” and liberally 

applies this philosophy,

as well as fuschia lipstick

upon her dry but warm lips.

Following her suggestion to me,

as a teenager,

“You can never go wrong 

with lipstick and a dab of color 

in your wardrobe!”

Her new lipstick tint is called,

“Orchid,” and matches 
her hot pink floral top!

Wishing you hidden jewels for Mother’s Day



John Killinger’s quotation, on how
to describe a Mother’s Love:

“It is stronger than steel,
softer than down,
and more resilient
than a green sapling
on the hillside.”

“It closes wounds,
melts disappointments,
and enables the weakest
child to stand tall and straight
in the fields of adversity.”

“I believe that this (Mother’s) love,
even at its best , is only a shadow
of the love of God, a reflection
of all that we can expect of Him,
both in this life and the next.”

~ taken from “Lost in Wonder, Love
and Praise” (Abingdon Press).
