Outside My Window…
I can see the results of some of my labor in our yard.

I Am Thinking… and have been thinking all day
about Mothers and Mother’s Day.
This is what I decided.
This is not an exclusionary club-
women are mothers,
whether they are married or not,

I am going… to wear pearls tomorrow.
Have a wonderful week!
