The Hand That Rocks The Cradle - On Mother's Day



TO MY MOTHER
My little baby lies along my arm,
And, looking at her there, the glad tears press,
And, like a tidalwave of tenderness,
The years of love since I lay cradled so —
Unfathomed love enfolding me from harm —
Return and flood my life. For now I know.

I discovered you via a podcast on Genealogy Gems. This post is wonderful and a great inspiration for other attorneys who want to have non-legal passions. Thank you!cah

Susie:

Loved the cat and the stones and being left alone in the Dr.'s office. You have a wry sense of humor.

A non-legal passion is necessary for my sanity. Someone once told me that the practice of law would be great if it weren't for clients and other attorneys.
