Today is a great Day!
I love today for two reason's one of which is this fabulous award! I love blogging awards, because they are so supportive and uplifting. The feeling you get from the needed validation and encouragement is like no other, and I will not forget the significance of this one. Leave it to Mel, from Monday Morning Power to give it to me on my luckiest day of the year! Twenty two years ago on this day my only child was born, and October the 1st became my favorite day of the year! I was walking out the door to go to lunch with my favorite kid when I got Mel's comment. Thank you Mel!
Mel was granted this award from Walks Far Woman at Kissing The Dogwood who is herself a fabulous blogger. I love the title of this award, Blogging That Hit's the Mark and it sure turned out to be true in my case!

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
