Happy Mother's Day
Close your eyes and Open your heart
Feel the breeze sending you hugs and kisses from me and the gentle voice saying I love
A mother is special, she's more
than a friend.
Whenever you need her, she'll give you a hand.
She'll lead you and guide you in all that you do.
all that she can just to see you get through.
Good times and bad times, she's there for it all.
Say head up, be proud,
and always stand tall.
She'll love you through quarrels and even big fights, or heart to heart chats on cold lonely nights.
My mother's the greatest that I've ever known, I think God made my mother like He'd make his own.
A praiser, a helper,
an encourager too, nothing in this world that she wouldn't do.
To help us succeed she does all that she can, raised a
young boy now into a man.
I want to say thank you for all that you do, please always know mom, that I love you.
George W. Zellars

~ The Coleus Seed ~
a time ~ A long, long time ago
There lived the sweetest little girl that you could ever know ~
girl was a treasure to her family and friends
Always loving beyond measure and steadfast to her ends ~
at school she planted a tiny little coleus seed
Her plant grew so beautifully, then she proudly gave it to her beloved
It was long ago on Mother's Day Back in 1993
Who then would
have ever known ~ What joy this plant would always be ~
She was only eight when she planted that tiny little seed
None of us then knew her fate, What a few more months would bring
was nurtured and adored with every fiber of her mother's being
And when this little girl had died, what comfort and joy
this plant would bring
The years went on and the plant stayed strong, It grew with such
beauty and meaning,
And continued to daily touch the very core of her Mother's being
Some fourteen years had come and gone,
one day it seemed the time had come
The plant was bound to die, it had Lived its life,
and there were no questions
But could they be given some renewed hope, some faith to assure them now
As this plant had served so long
and it's continued life was this mother's vow?
What that they could find another to somehow tide them along
new beginning perhaps, as a reminder of the old?
A cherished living reminder of her sweet love and song
very seed that she had planted such a very long time ago?
Hearts searched on for a new seed but one could not be found
ever come close to the one, she so long ago had planted lovingly in it's ground
Days went by, hope diminished,
they'd have to settle for another
To remind them of the "One" seed brought long ago to her beloved Mother
That Mother's Day back in 1993 when the little girl now in Heaven
This plant had so joyfully nurtured
and then so lovingly given
But this story is not over for there is joy yet waiting to be discovered
when they thought all had been tried an Angel led a new seed to her very Mother!
Found tucked inside a can that
had been closed up tight for years
Long forgotten by her Mother were the very seeds from the plant of her tiny little
From a past time so dear when the plant grew and prospered here
Angel had spoken and led her Mother there...
The message from her Daughter, it was so loud and clear
does not end Mom! It just starts over! She said with a cheer!
And so the seed was planted, the one from it's mothers
It would grow and prosper to forever remind
That life is Eternal and Forever, so
never lose hope!
The little girl was still working from her place in Heaven called Home!
And so it was decreed for this tiny little
Because you see it truly happened, and it happened to me!
Lovingly Written In Loving Memory of My Youngest Daughter Michelle Marie August 1984 ~ November 1993

AS LONG AS I CAN
As long as I
can, I will look at the world for both of us.
As long as I
can, I will laugh with the bird, I will sing
I will play to the stars, for both of us.
As long as I
can, I will remember how many things on this earth were your joy. And I will live as well as you would want me to live, as
long as I can
