Happy Wednesday to everyone. Hope your week is going well. I am happy to say that I finally finished all my projects for the start of the summer market season! YEAH!! I made it with three weeks to spare! Now I hope the season goes well and is profitable. How many of you do summer shows, festivals, and markets?
Does everyone know what Sunday is?? Yep, that is right……Mother’s Day! I read this poem the other day and I would like to share it with you. It is a cute poem and really brings to light the important meaning of life.

A weary mother returned from the store,
Lugging groceries through the kitchen door,
Awaiting her arrival was her 8 year old son,
Anxious to relate what his younger brother had done.

 “While I was out playing and Dad was on a call,
T.J. took his crayons and wrote on the wall!
It’s on the new paper you just hung in the den,
I told him you’d be mad at having to do it again.”

She let out a moan and furrowed her brown,
“Where is your little brother right now?”
She emptied her arms and with a purposeful stride,
She marched to his closet where he had gone to hide.

She called his full name and she entered his room.
He trembled with fear-he knew that meant doom!
For the next ten minutes, she ranted and raved
About the expensive wallpaper and how she had saved.

Lamenting all the work it would take to repair,
She condemned his actions and total lack of care.
The more she scolded, the madder she got,
Then stomped from his room, totally distraught!

 She headed for the den to confirm her fears.
When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears.
The message she read pierced her soul with a dart.
It said, “I love Mommy,” surrounded by a heart.

Well, the wallpaper remained, just as she found it,
With an empty picture frame hung to surround it.
A reminder to her and indeed to all,
Take time to read the handwriting on the wall.

Well I don’t know about all of you, but I had to get the Kleenex box out after I read this. So to all you mother’s out there I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day and enjoy your family.  :)
