Simply lovely - has your mother read it? She should.

:) Lovely indeed, though short and apparently simple. (Is there an acrostic competition / challenge on here somewhere, or is it just that there are accrostics in the wind at the moment?)

What can I say, but what the others have said - I love it and its stark simplicity expresses it all. Excellent!

JA VUL! Thanks for writing and sharing this Mo. Me thinks this could apply to the majority of mothers, including my own. Come to think of it, you fit nicely into this equation as well. Happy belated Mother's Day. :o)

yes, in nut shell. 'Heart of home.' The concept of a home without a mother, well, I can't imagine. Straight and to the point.
