Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

On this Mother’s Day I find myself thinking about all the grieving mothers who lost their beautiful children in Kabul yesterday in the horrific bombing outside their school, yet another “Massacre of the Innocents,” as I remember our own wonderful late mother whose favorite expression could not be more relevant today, “Count Your Blessings.” Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers who are the real heroes in their families and especially to the amazing mums in our own family. You are all loved beyond words.

I know I posted this photo for International Women’s Day only two months ago, but I love the people in it so much that I had to re-post it for Mother’s Day today as it expresses everything about what being a loving mother and grandmother is all about. So, Happy Mother’s Day to these two wonderful mothers and to all the wonderful mothers, grandmothers and mothers-to-be who might be visiting thechangingpalette today, and of course to all of you who like me are remembering our own mothers, no longer with us but always lovingly in our thoughts.

Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother's Day

A very Canadian Mother’s Day image seen on our early morning walk this morning with this family of Canada Geese having their Mother’s Day brunch together. Once again it’s the “Early Bird” photography syndrome – literally – finding beauty in the early hours of the day.

In this week’s Photo Challenge Brie asks us “to share a force of nature from your corner of the world…It can be something as large as the Grand Canyon, or as small as the tiny seedling steadily breaking it’s way through the concrete in your driveway…” Well, although not in our driveway, even though we don’t have a driveway, I think these goslings are tiny enough, wouldn’t you agree.
