This weekend we celebrate Mother's Day and I wanted to post a tribute to all the wonderful mothers I have met and photographed this past year.
"A Mother's Love"
A Mother's love is something,
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion,
and of sacrifice and pain.
It is endless and unselfish,
and enduring come what may,
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away...
It is patient and forgiving,
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking...
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems.
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation...
A many splendour-ed miracle
man cannot understand,
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
Happy Mother's Day to all you special moms out there.
And to the 4 special moms in my life:
My sister-in-law, Tara, who is more like my sister.
My sister-in-law, Dani, who is months away from becoming a mom herself.
My mother-in-law, Carol, who treats me like her very own.
And my amazing mother, Mary Jane, who is the best mom anyone could ever have.
