Let me take joy in ordinary events:
chores such as laundry, cooking and shopping.
Let me make time to listen to others and share.
There is so much joy to find in the little things.
Birds are busy building nests in our bird houses.
They too have to consider the location
to house their young as they attempt to
bring in brown leaves much too large for
the opening. They do not give up.
Daily walks through the garden yield new
buds, flowers emerging and lush greens.
There is great satisfaction in visiting with
others, singing in the choir, reading and more.
Let me this Mother’s Day with my family and
be grateful for life’s abundance.
Let me find happiness with my lot in life.
Let me remember my mother and hers
and all mothers everywhere. Once a
mother, always a mother. Let me take
joy in the little ones who have their
lives ahead of them. Watch over my
family as they discover life and the
ordinary events. For isn’t that what
it is all about? I am grateful and happy.
Let them also be. Remind them to
always help others and find that joy!
May their hearts be filled with love.
From my heart to yours.
P.S. Happy Birthday, Mom. Ich liebe Dich.
