Failed attempt at a Mother's Day Picture. And a poem.

You are the trip I did not take;
You are the pearls I cannot buy;
You are my blue Italian lake;
You are my piece of foreign sky"

--Anne Campbell, "To My Child"

Thank you over and over, Lord, for letting me be a mother to these precious kiddos.  They are my treasures.

Love the poem. And I know you don't like your hair long, but I think it looks really good. John looks a lot different than the last time I saw him. Good thing I will see him this weekend.

Oh Laura Beth,

It is 8:00 p.m. and I have just now read yours, Ann's, and your mom's Mother's Day blog posts. My eyes are swimming in tears from reading all three. The poem you posted is too much. The pictures are beyond wonderful.

Love you,
Mary Ann
