God's Masterpiece Is Mother
God took the fragrance of a flower
The majesty of a tree
The gentleness of morning dew
The calm of the quiet sea
The beauty of the twilight hour
The soul of a starry night
The laughter of a rippling brook
The grace of a bird in flight
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when the masterpiece was done
He called it simply-Mother.
--Herbert Farnham-American Poet
This is a picture of Anya, (which in Hungarian means Mom) my dear Grandma, the only mother I ever knew. Pictured here with my two boys, her great-grandsons, in 1963.( Since I can only take a picture of the original, it's not the best of pictures.)
She was there for me through thick or thin, and gave me gifts of the heart, when there was no money for store-bought gifts, during the war. Her faith was strong, and her love deeper than the deepest ocean!
She went to her heavenly reward in February of 1989, at the age of 89. I miss her to this day!
"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always discover forgiveness" --Honore De Balzac
Have a Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
