For all the women,
may you have a blessed Mother's Day with feet up,
surrounded by those you love,
and JOY in a cup to cheer the day!
The Song of a Lovely Day
Of kitchen curtains blowing; of a bubbling kettle;
Of a yellow cat on a oaken settle;
Of the webs I'm brushing from a corner in the hall;
Of crimson roses climbing up a garden wall;
Of a beater whipping egg-whites to a froth;
Of a table set for tea with a linen cloth;
Of children's lilting laughter; of a broom's soft swish;
Of the first ripe strawberries in a crystal dish;
Of a morning's ironing and its crisp array-
Oh, of all the details of a lovely day,
I will make a song, dear, then when I am through
Will keep it for the singing, come evening, to you.

May it be an extra special day!
Joey soaking up the sun.
