Mappie #65: Prayer of Protection...

Photography by Tess Kincaid
Writing/Poetry challenge Hostess Magpie Tales

a mother's quest
to teach her children,
like baby birds, to fly high and strong
once they leave the nest...

we do our best
as mothers
to teach, to share, to caution...

some lessons
must be learned
by living one's life...

 there are times
when due to experience
and living longer,
a parent can only hope
their children will heed
their advice...

St. Francis,
the rest of the Saints,
 dear Lord above,
all the positive and protective energy...
PLEASE
PROTECT
OUR CHILDREN
and GRAND CHILDREN

amen

Yes, experience is key! Just wish our children realized that. Yes, it St Joseph that one is supposed to bury, I just goofed up. And yes, he is supposed to be put in a place of honor. Our house hadn't sold when we moved and when it did sell, I never dug him up as I was far away... Thanks for stopping by! I was looking on you other blog and your grandson is adorable. What a contagious smile.

I have a St. Francis in my flower garden. I've caught up with your posts on both blogs this morning Donna! Loved the tile making with friends!

I think one's life is given meaning by what one does with it. Per se it has no meaning. Your sentiments in your Magpie are well expressed

Dear blogging buddies: I have gone back in my emails and reposted all comments found which were deleted by blogger. Your input and comments are precious to me, and I wanted each of you to know I did read each one.

I apologise for not being able to link back to your blogs, like your original comments did.

I waited a few days, hoping Blogger would restore the messages, but am glad they restored both my posts on each of my blogs.

If you left a comment and it was not posted, please let me know.
