On this amazing day

I get to nurture seven children in my home.

Three born to me, children of love—

Angel Boy, for one more day—

Little twin sisters, arrived last week to stay for a time—

An unborn child, due to join us in December.

My heart is full to bursting.
The Lord has given and taken away, blessed be His name.

Happy Mother’s Day, to all women who pour love every day into the heart of a child.
