Mother's Day Tablescape

Mother's Day Tablescape

I am thinking about all the Mother's I know and love.  Who have done so much for me and all their loved ones.  

My own Mother who has passed on.  She was a wonderful woman, gentle and mild, and self-sacrificing.  She had rheumatoid arthritis at a young age, yet she would walk with me for miles in the coldest winter snow to take me to Ballet class or Girl Scouts, or shopping, as she didn't drive.  We would read together every night.  She would read a page then I would read a page.  She would stay by my bedside until I went to sleep.  I couldn't sleep very well then as well as now.  It was so comforting to have her nearby when I am sure she must have been very tired.   Now with many children of my own I understand what a Mother truly is.....  .
