Choosing a bird to represent Mother’s Day was relatively easy.  As I was pondering Mothers and birds, Mother Goose popped into my head and I realized how perfect that was!  Of course, Mother Goose, according to legend, is a person who rides a goose, and is not actually a goose herself – but still!  The Mother Goose of legend is a story-teller, and has a very important role in the lives of children everywhere – just as all mothers do.

Mother Goose

My mother is the person who taught me how to be

The kind of mother to my kids that she has been to me.

She’s taught me perseverance, and forgiveness in her way.

Her life is my example, and I love her more each day!
