Joan Vivian
 She is the whisper of the leaves in the trees. 
she's the warmth of the sun on my face
she is the gentle touch of the rain upon my skin. 
I hear my Mother in my laughter and
she is the woman in the mirror looking back at me.
She's the place I came from, my first home,
my first love and my first heartbreak...
She's the inspiration I follow with every step that I take.
Nothing on earth can separate me from her.
Not time, nor place not even death
can ever separate me from my mother...
I carry her sweet memory in my heart and she is always with me
Happy Mother's day Mommy
I will always love you

    Thank you both for your lovely comments and for coming by today,
