Happy Mother’s Day!
I’ve been saving up this awesome poem for the occasion ever since I heard it, gosh, months ago.Â And if you all already knew it, well, you should have told me. Because it’s a new favorite. It’s “The Lanyard” by Billy Collins.
If that one leaves you craving more and you have some Serenity Time, check out his “To My Favorite 17-Year-Old High School Girl.” And before long you might get so sucked in that you’ll just have to read a whole bunch of Billy Collins poems.
If you’re a new-ish reader, here’s a list of other Mother’s Day links that I’ve shared in years gone by:
- Steve McCurryâ€™s beautiful photography blog
- For my first Capital District Fun Motherâ€™s Day I offered up theÂ Motherâ€™s Day Weep-Fest Triple Threat.
- I wrote The Motherâ€™s Day Gift, about our tree swing.
- I whined about all the love cluttering my house in a post I called Mother’s Day Minefield.
- Motherlodeâ€™sÂ little essay from Anna Quindlen in which she tells us that the best is yet to come.
Enjoy the day.
