Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

She's so beautiful -- it just shines through in this picture! I guess that's where her daughter got it from.

A Mother & Daughter

Nurtured by time through the highs and the lows,
The love which is theirs ever deepens and grows
And both turn more patient as days become years,
Growing older and wiser through gladness and tears
They cling to each other in times of despair,
Taking comfort in knowing the other one is there
Providing support with a look or a touch,
It is the littlest things, that to them, mean so much!
Deeply concerned for the ones they hold dear,
They mark birthdays and holidays all through the year
Building family traditions each step of the way,
Sharing good news and bad, as they go day to day
They are a mother & daughter, and right from the start,
They were forever joined in a place of the heart
And the lifetime of love which they willingly give,
Will enhance and sustain them as long as they live.
