Happy Mother's Day
Today I want to share a bit of my own mother with my friends here. She was forever copying things she found meaningful and keeping them in her favorite book - a cook book.
When she died, my sister sent me a framed photocopy of one of the things she had found meaningful and kept:
JUST A MOMENT
By Martin Cecil
Any moment of hating
any moment of lying,
any moment of resentment is a
moment of dying.
Any moment of loving,
any moment of giving,
any moment of thankfulness, is a
moment of living.
All our moments add together
like the digits in a sum
and the answer tells us plainly
whether life or death will come.
She lived loving, and giving, and thankful, and is remembered by all for it.
