Tribute to Mother

Mothers are the focal point of our lives; they are the greatest human being in the world. Mothers are everything for us when we are small, our lives revolve around her, for everything that we need we call mother; to protect us from all perceivable dangers we want her around us, to kiss away our wounds we run to her. For me, my mom was and is divinity on earth. There is a quote from Abraham Lincoln that absolutely epitomizes my mother’s influence in my life: “I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” Knowing that my mom was always praying for me made a big impact in my life. So this is my humble tribute to her!

We all have a mother though may be she is not here anymore, if you are thankful for your mother, grandmother or that special mother figure in your life, don't keep it a secret, we want to share it with everyone... So I invite you, sweet friends, to join our appreciation by posting your own “Homage to your Mother” today.... here, at the House in the Roses. If you have posted, or will be posting anything about Mother's Day, simply add your link to Mr. Linky below.


This lovely image below is my gift to all of you--a way of saying: "Happy Mother's Day, sweet friend". Take it, put it on your blog, and pass it along to as many friends as you want; let this represent our gratitute, and love to our mothers.

  2. My mother is with me all through my garden. When she passed on I took some of her favourite plants from the garden and they have lived and flourished in my garden, as a permanent reminder.
    Thank you mum!

  8. What a beautiful picture of you and your Mom! Such a blessing to still have your Mom with you. Mine passed away 16 years ago and there are so many things I miss about her.I have a special memory table in my family room that I set aside just for her, so it reminds me of the good times.
    I hope you and your Mom have the happiest Mothers Day EVER!

  38. The difficulty I had during my early years was the aquisition of motherly love, it was unavailable and so distant at a time when needed most. Yet despite my mothers shortcomings I kept faith in her to the end.

    Please read my post, thank you.

    Thank you for allowing me on your wonderful blog, so beautiful.
