Happy Mother's Day!
I've got the children to tend The clothes to mend The floor to mop The food to shop Then the chicken to fry The baby to dry I got company to feed The garden to weed I've got shirts to press The tots to dress The cane to be cut I gotta clean up this hut Then see about the sick And the cotton to pick.
Shine on me, sunshine Rain on me, rain Fall softly, dewdrops And cool my brow again.
Storm, blow me from here With your fiercest wind Let me float across the sky 'Til I can rest again.
Fall gently, snowflakes Cover me with white Cold icy kisses and Let me rest tonight.
Sun, rain, curving sky Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone Star shine, moon glow You're all that I can call my own.

For my sister and my mother. Thank you for all you do. My life is blessed because of you both.
I remember one day I said to my mother, “I like your sweater.” Her response, “Do you want it?,” and promptly started taking it off! It is the epitome of my mother – unselfish giving, always looking out for her children, always looking out for me. I truly believe I can accomplish anything in my life because of the backbone of support I receive from my mother. I also witness this strength in my sister as she cares for her children. Both of them do Woman Work, effortlessly, and seamlessly.
I also have the privilege of working every day with many women who are mothers and also hear many stories from daughters. Every day, I hear amazing stories of love and care.
On this day, I acknowledge all women for all they do and who they are – beautiful goddesses. Today, stand in your glory, bask in the sun.
With love to Mom and Sister,
Erin and Lauren
