A Perfect Day

I know I missed wishing all of my online friends a very Happy Mother’s Day; but it was only because I was so busy having one! I also wanted to share the poem that has always touched my heart as a mother, both early on and even now. May every day find you feeling blessed in your Motherhood. It is a real job if you’re doing it right; but the rewards are the best kind of treasure. 😘💕





PS. I had lovely gifts all day and sweet conversations with children and family. Oh. And some amazing food! Wanna see? 😀

  1. That was one of my mom’s favorite poems! She used to quote all of it, and gradually lost verses, but she never lost it all. Thank you for that sweet memory! ❤


  2. What a beautiful poem Cheryl. My daughters are adopted, and this is my favorite poem.

    Title: Not flesh of my flesh

    Author: Fleur Conkling Heyliger

    Not flesh of my flesh

    Nor bone of my bone,

    But still miraculously my own.

    Never forget for a single minute,

    You didn’t grow under my heart

    But in it.

    I’m so happy you had such a super Mother’s Day!! You look ecstatic. The food looks scrumptious. But that first piece of cake w/whip cream, well that’s just decadent!! Me! I would’ve started with the cake!!

    Hope this week treats you well. Happy Hump Day tomorrow.

    1. Awww Ginger that’s a beautiful poem. Motherhood is a state of loving, not genetics. I can imagine you have a wonderful relationship with them too. I should have stopped before the cake or we should have shared a piece but we were just having too much indulgent fun. Good thing we aren’t wealthy!


    1. Thanks Dan. The company was the best part. 😀It was my first time to eat sashimi and we tried some amazing pieces. I didn’t have time to caption every i age but one of those is a Spanish Octupus appetizer. OMG. I never ever thought I would like that but it was incredibly delish. We saw the new Avengers film first. A real heartbreaker. My son worked on it.
