time is the gold in every person’s pocket – a mother’s day tribute

love is…

a sink full of dirty dishes

a laundry basket piled high

books stacked on the table

a fancy dinner traded in for chinese food

 

because love is time, not spent counted out but being spent.

 

love is…

(dirty dishes) because she was playing hearts with her youngest daughter

(dirty laundry) because she was watching a movie with her grandson

(books stacked) because she was discussing a novel with her second youngest daughter

(chinese food) because she was late getting home after a  day spent shopping

 

because time is the gold in every person’s pocket, but rare is the person who knows

not only how to spend it, but spend it wisely.

love is time well-spent with the ones you love

because she has learned what seems important,

and what is.

  1. I love this. ❤ And you. And your mom for having you. Happy Mother's Day to her and you 'cause, of course, you're a mom. To hundreds of charrie-babies.

    And I have to tell you. We were going to go to Cracker Barrel for lunch but it was too crowded and there was a line and they were calling someone out on the speakers to tell them their table was ready. They called "Angel" for a table for 2. xD

Got something to say?
