002(2)The Love of a Mother
by Anonymous

A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away

It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking

It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems011(1)

It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation

A many splendor miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.001(3)

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO THE MOST LOVING AND UNSELFISH PERSON I KNOW. I LOVE YOU, MOM!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND TO EVERYONE!

It's now able for pre-order on Amazon. I was the first place winner in the Dream Quest One Short Story Contest in the Winter 2014-2015 competition. In 2014, I placed second in Southern Writers Magazine Short Story Contest. I was also a top ten finalist in Southern Writers Magazine Short Story Contest in 2012 and 2013.

  2. Your mom is lovely! Great poem; it’s so true. But being a mom, those traits of pure love and always being there – it’s something that seems to come as soon as that precious baby is born. She/he is part of us forever from then on. My mom is 91 and as her personality fades a bit, I love her just as much. But now, she (unknowingly) calls me her mother – and she’s the daughter. Both ways, we love each other unconditionally.

      • Glad you had such a wonderful weekend Jill! I will do my best to get to a blog post about Jersey this week but I’m pushing it, so might not be until Monday. I’ve got Nicky home this weekend so a fast turn around! We had an amazing time though, being there for Liberation Day. I learnt so much about their history and what it was like to be under Nazi occupation for 5 years during WWII. My head is swirling with it all, it was a very humbling and incredible experience. No worries on the email, I understand, but we will talk soon! Have a great rest of the week my friend πŸ™‚ xoxo

  36. I apologize very profusely. Last one to add my two cents. I thought I had looked at your blog on Friday but must have missed this beautiful and special post, Jill.
    I love looking at the pose with your pretty Mom, hands on hips and brightly dressed. She looks like a wonderful person, your truest friend and fan, your everything from birth until now, like I feel about my Mom. So thoroughly blessed and thankful. She looks very healthy and young, Jill. This is a good thing passed on to you.
    The Mother’s Day poem was really nicely written. Too bad it is anonymous. Someone really loved their mother.
    This was a special tribute and wish I had seen it earlier. Take care and enjoy the rest of your week and your weekend, Jill.

    • Robin please, there is no need to apologize. You’ve had a difficult week and business to address, so no worries.
      I love this photo of my mother. When I told her I wanted to take her picture, she stood with her arms at her side and not smiling too much. I said, “smile” and she struck that pose. I thought it was so cute.
      I know we have a lot in common when it comes to our relationship with our mothers, so your comment means so much.
      Take care and keep me posted on the “big event.” πŸ™‚ xo
