Mother's Day 2017 Haiku by Clark J. Pagels


My son, Clark J. Pagels, 15, wrote me this haiku for Mother's Day. Of course, I love it! I'm sharing it as Clark's guest post for today! Isn't this the sweetest thing ever?

Wishing you all a fantastic Mother's Day! Wishing peace for those who are suffering, like my older sister, who have lost children and may happy memories comfort all of you!

Yesterday, God gave me a very nice Mother's Day gift -- I am a finalist in the prestigious Holt Medallion Awards for my Romance Novella, "The Steeplechase," which is set here where we live!

God bless our readers and God bring healing to our current bloggers, Teresa Mathews and Bonnie Roof, and to our former bloggers Diana Flowers, Noela Nancarrow, and Marian Baay!
