It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

The life you live is the life you choose to most vividly and consistently imagine. Imagine the best, without ceasing, and that's exactly what you'll have.

Ralph Marston


Mother's Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled "I Love You's."

It is also a time to do what MOMs do best and that is to want only the best things in life for their children and here is a poem that says it so well.

A Wish For You, Child
Poet: Unknown

May all your wishes come true
May you always do for others,
and let others do for you.

May you build a ladder to the stars
and climb on every rung
and may you stay forever young

May you grow to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth,
and see the light that's surrounding you

May you always be courageous,
stand upright and be strong
And may you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy,
and may your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation
when he winds of change shift

May your heart always be joyful,
and may your song always be sung

And may you stay forever young.

To see my children healthy happy and safe is the greatest blessing. I think all Moms feel the same.

'On Ya'-ma
