A Mother's Love

I bet everyone can think of a strong female in their lives, whether it’s a mom, a step-mom, a grandmother or an aunt. She’s a woman who has cared for you when you were sick, guided you through life, and still stands by you as an adult. A mother’s love is a special kind of love— it has no conditions or expiration date. One of the best things about being a woman is the ability to be a mother, a caregiver. These days, mothers do more than ever, from holding jobs, to being involved with the PTO, taking care of the house, and running children to and from practices— mothers are full-time super heroes!

[Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome]
by Christina Rossetti

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstar while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.

*ButterflyB* *ButterflyG* *ButterflyO* *ButterflyR* *ButterflyV*

Ask & Answer

Thank you to everyone who wrote in about my newsletter last month dealing with break ups! Good to know I'm not the only one who has grieved.

Crys, your newsletter this week on dealing with breakups was right on target. How do I know? Your comparison to the situation being similar to when a loved one dies. If you read my article on Dealing With the Loss of a Loved One (item #757634, posted "way back" on 9/28/03 you'll see how accurate your comparison really is. You gave excellent advice here. I started writing the bio of Linda and I the week after she died in 1980. You're VERY right. It's VERY therapeutic. Keep up the great work!-Incurable Romantic

Aw I hope you start to feel better. Break-ups are the worst unless you realize that it's better to have broken up so a right person can eventually come along. Even if you aren't sitting around waiting for it. -scribbler
