Sentimental Sunday: There Were Six
Who could resist a warm smile, a hand to hold and a hug that is so consoling when need be and as spontaneous as you wanted it to be.
Who could resist that tug of your heart when your mother told you that you were special and that you are loved.
Who could resist being told that you looked very pretty when you knew that you yourself did not think so.
Who could resist taking a swipe of cake batter from a big wooden spoon and being asked your opinion as to whether it was good or not, knowing that each time it was the best you ever tasted.
Who could resist staring at the lady you called mom, mommie,or momma. Thinking how beautiful she was and how proud she made you feel.
Who could resist that laughter and the sound of a song that was sung while she snapped her fingers.
Who could resist knowing that she was your mama and you were her child.
Who could resist those tears that fell when her grown son ran out the room knowing she was on her way to another place better than this one.
Who could resist when she told the weakest one to go get that son because she knew in the end that weak one would become strong.
There are six who could not resist coming into the life of a wonderful person. A person who doted on them, who loved being around them, who protected and nutured them.
There were six who learned spiritual guidance through words and deeds. That it was as confidential as a mother's prayer.
There were six who knew that a Mother's Day celebration is just as meaningful today as it was yesterday.
There were six who knew without a doubt that they were loved.
There were six!!
