Happy Mother's Day

 Happy Mother's Day!

I write sometimes with ease
Yet when it comes to Mothers
They have so many complexities
Not found in many others

Do I write about their beauty
They share with those around?
Or do I focus on their strengths
So many it's profound

Like gardener's in the world of life
They cultivate and grow
Weed and feed and water
Nurturing what they sow

I can talk about her heart inside
Surrounding yours with Love
Always there uplifting you
Like gentle wings from above

And then there is such strength
Found in a Mother's soul
Standing strong in her convictions
Raising us well is her goal

Like a faithful tree she's there
Her arms outstretched and open
We run to her Love and Strength
When feeling frail and broken

A Mother's hand can be firm
While teaching right from wrong
Yet when we need her soothing
She's there singing us a song

And what about her inner child
Sharing Joy, laughter and fun
Mother's will go outside and play
Hitting softballs in the sun

I know there is a fragile side
When things are out of her control
That melancholy moment
When a Mother can't console

Life is sometimes harsh and hard
A Mother's heart can break
Pain can touch her  inner soul
Bringing tears and heartache

A Mother's spirit won't stay down
Perpetually it grows
Spreading Love and Compassion
Nurturing as she sows

Such complex Beauty's in a Mother
We honor you today
I guess I found my words
Yet there's so much more to say

Thank You hardly seems enough
For all that Mother's do
So I add I Love you Mom
From my heart that is true

One wish I have is just to be
Half the woman that you are
Then I'd be Blessed beyond my dreams
As you are my shining star

So I'll end where I began
Wondering how to say it all
With all your Love and Caring
You taught us to stand tall

My heart is filled with Gratitude
So I say it in my way
For being the Wonder that you are
Have a  Happy Mother's Day!

Written with Love, Joy,  and Thankfulness to Honor the Woman I Love and Admire, my Dearest Mother.  You've played such a major role in creating who I am today. This is one day that is set aside to honor and thank you for all you've done and do. (hardly seems enough)
Happy Mother's Day Mom! I Love You!
Love and Light,
Nina Pauline

Happy Nurses Week!

Happy Nurses Week!!

Tis the week for nurses
That we acknowledge you
Your kind and gentle caring
That lasts the whole year through

Seems odd to only have a week
To say what needs be said
Since that is what we have
     Let’s get on with this instead

So thank you for your knowledge
  That keeps us safe and sound
         And thanks for all your caring
          You share with all around

 Through laughter and through tears
  You always lend a hand
        So let’s take a week to share
                Our thoughts throughout the land

       With patience and with patients
           You practice what you preach
       Not only here to help
  You’re also here to teach

        From paperwork to bedpans
Your work is never done
                    Yet through it all you smile
         For in your heart you’ve won

        We do not always show it,
     Our respect for all you do
        So, for this week and always
        Many Thanks go out to you!!

      Thank You! & Happy Nurses Week!!!!

Thank You

The walk went well today
We made it! So Hurray!
Thank you one and all
For answering the call
To help fight the fight
Of this MS blight

"I walk because I can"
Words from my friend Anne
Multiple Sclerosis
Is a tough  diagnosis
So we keep on with this war
Until we kick MS out the door

Written with Love and Light,  by Nina Pauline
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that effects the nervous system of its victims. It is a debilitating progressive disease that as yet, has no cure. Through dedicated research there are many treatments available to slow the progression of the disease. With funding, research, thoughts and prayers, we will find a cure. Again, Thank you all for your support for this worthy cause.  Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P
