“Mom” is the word(s),story or poem

As Mother’s Day approaches we give thanks and appreciation for one of the most beautiful gifts, “mom”. Last week I surprised my mom at work with a cake and a bouquet of roses at her job, we hugged and cried and said very little. It was a priceless moment, one that we will cherish forever.

Express your “appreciation” and “gratitude” by sharing your story or poem about motherhood, as I believe it may come in many ways. If you submit a story or poem by Saturday evening, I will send you a notecard with my art, no charge…just because. After submitting  send me your mailing address at:

Give mom a gift of “Gratitude”, it doesn’t cost anything! So, what are you waiting for? Just follow the link:

Gratitude: A pink rose painting

“Gratitude is the memory of the heart”

– J. B. Massieu, Letter to the Abbe Sicard

Pink roses are associated with gratitude among other feelings. Today I wanted to write about what I’m grateful to have in my life. I know life throws us daily challenges and everything seems so overwhelming at times that we overlook the small details. Here is my list of “Gratefulness” for today along which is also the title for this beautiful pink rose painting for the exhibit, enjoy!

1- Grateful to have a another day, I will treat it with respect and enjoyment!
