Cheers to all the mothers, grandmothers, and care-takers out there! To all the women who touch our lives across a lifetime…
Thank you for every skinned-knee you clean, bad dream you hush away, cookie you bake, and broken heart you soothe.
For every costume you make, story you read, school play you sit through and drawing you hang on the fridge…
May your day be filled with blue skies, rainbow-colored flowers, heart-felt hugs, and more laughter than you know what to do with.
I give you the gift of a giggle or two, and perhaps — just perhaps — a knowing smile.
Messy Room by Shel Silverstein
Whosever room this is should be ashamed! His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair, And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window, His sweater’s been thrown on the floor.
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV, And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet, His vest has been left in the hall.
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed, And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosever room this is should be ashamed! Donald or Robert or Willie or–
Huh? You say it’s mine? Oh, dear, I knew it looked familiar!
Go be queens of your day!
