the very call

day by day we quietly lay down self
and take up the towel and water

day by day we push our own plans back
and make the time instead
to feed young bodies, nourish minds, nurture hearts

hour by hour
we follow the example He has left us

this is the very call of motherhood

What a privilege to be a mom.

What a blessing to have (and have had) wonderful ladies in my life who understood and became the heart of this calling and followed His example. While I watched, lived, they poured out their lives for me and for others. So many of you are here, and so many are with the Father now.

Because it's 30 September, I am celebrating today. So thankful ♥
