Mother's Lullabye

Image credit: Link

sleep my baby sleep
mommy's here for you to keep
together we shall be counting sheep

hush my baby hush
can you hear the mocking thrush
singing like a nightingale at first blush

rest my baby rest
i shall hold  you close to my chest
on my shoulder your head may crest

oh... It's a beautiful poem.

Mom's are so important for kids and I truly respect the way my mom has nurtured me.

Keep Writing. I love the way you express the real meanings of heartfelt emotions.

I can almost hear my mom sing it to me... Really beautiful and caressing, my dear..

I love your sweet lullaby, Bing. Reminds me of those long ago days with my two babies.

And then as I'm getting ready to add my comment, I saw your tag--"don't mess with my kids"! It gave me a giggle...

P.S. Every time I see your quote by Swami Vivekananda, I remember how many times I clung to it for support and hope. It's one of my favorites.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
