From Kalyn


When the night comes to claim its due
As the sun bids us farewell with its last magnificent hue
Softly through the house she goes
On her back the joy’s of the day and its woes

Gently bending to plant a kiss
Upon each brow, not one shall she miss
Not till each child has laid down their head
And each last blossom has gone to bed

Shall she lay down in peaceful bliss
With her Father in heaven sending down on the moon beams a loving kiss
Thou the days can be long and weary
And not all misshapes are cute and funny

Still each day she rises to do her best
At raising her young and maintaining her nest
It is with a thankful heart she greets each morning
And prepares for what the day shall bring

Though tears should flow all day
And fights break out along the way
And when in exhaustion she lays down her head
And prays to God to give her strength to walk down the path she’s lead

When she see’s that smile break across her little ones face
And the princesses come up all dressed in lace
When her child succeeds and does their best
Then all her miss giving’s and fears fly away as far as the east is from the west

This is a subject dear to my heart
And I know of no other way to share my gratefulness except to sing it like a lark
Together we go through rain and hail
And sometimes we stand tall, at other times we fail

I write what is close to my heart, my joys and passions
And I just can’t go for long with this to mention
I love my mother she is everything to me
She is my model and everything in life I could hope to be

So cheers to the mothers one and all
Who answered life’s greatest call
To love and to cherish the gifts that God has given them
So from one extremely grateful and thankful daughter’s heart I love you mom and that’s the best I know how to say it.

    Kalyn and Shonni, You have such spunk and zest. I know you are busy sweet friend, but I also know your contagious joy! I invite you to come and get a bit joyful with me. There has been a serious lack of enjoying life in our home over the past few years. I'm busting out, and wanting you to join me, share your ideas, help me start something for others to join in.
