This was very well put together! I love the flow of how you describe all the things you did together.
Very good ending I love the scripture you chose it goes perfect with what you wrote.
Keep Writing! Amazing Job!
Very creative!
What a wonderful journey of life through poetry!
I could see that you attempted rhyme occasionally. A little more and consistant rhythm would help it to flow even better.
Beauiful picture words. Keep writing.
A wonderful display of a great love between mother and child. I enjoyed the glimpses, like photos in a family album. Beautiful and thank-you for sharing. Great job!
I loved reading about all the many ways your mother's hands ministered to you as you were growing up! You have some rich memories!

I especially appreciated the thought behind these lines:

"Whenever through the hard tasks I trod to make a house a home
My hands have played the integral part-
Shadows of mother's hands I've known."

How wonderful to mirror your mother's love in this way!

Thank you for sharing this with us!
Your poetry created the image in my mind of a vine winding and curling through time. Agree, the rhythm was uneven (intended?) and a little distracting, but I really enjoyed the texture. Nice effort!
