I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.
Experience Being a Mother
This response to Brenda’s prompt seemed to come very slowly to me, then I thought about my three sons. The greatest responsibility and joy I have had in my life is my three sons. I loved being a mother. Now they are grown, and I have grandchildren.
Being a Cub Scout den mother, taking them to fun events and enjoying each birthday was such a pleasure. Of course, we had some of the problems that tend to occur with raising boys. We had a few emergency room visits for stitches and a couple of broken bones. Each son had his own unique personality and skills. They are now good men, and I am proud of them.
A Mother's song - "Mother to Child"- Love for all Mothers
Children of mine I love you so
Your smiles brighten up my day
I love the wonder in your eyes
All my love is here to stay
Making new friends who love to play
They learn something new every day
Their boundless energy we see
They have friends so they say
On the playground they run fast
In the classroom they will learn
Books we read before they sleep
Naptime they will always spurn
Children are happy with their friends
Solving new problems every day
Giggling and laughing at silly things
Love will always find a perfect way
Childhood is a precious time
Confusion and growth as they age
Parents guiding them with love
Until they've grown earning a wage
Children bring much joy to life
Happy smiles light up their eyes
It’s those very precious memories
Love like I’ve never known before
Doing all the things they love best
How fast the time goes by
Over the hills they ride their bikes
On to better thing I believe
Doing their best to make a life
"A Mother's Song"
I have very much enjoyed Brenda's prompts. She has given many of us a way to be creative that we had not explored before. Exploring new options at any age is probably healthy, and it is very enjoyable. I appreciate the effort that Brenda has put into these prompts, as she reviews all of our responses, and she lets readers know about them.
