      Wow. So he was not in NY when this happened.

      The waiting was over and he has a team now. So go get ‘em Mr. Sam. Make the team and show the naysayers your skills as you did during your college years.

      I know he has a Dad. Does he have a Mom still living?

    Dedicated to HZ, Judith, Susanne, and all who are missing their “BEAUTIFUL and PRECIOUS MOTHERS.”

    {{{{{{{{{{HZ, Judith and Susanne}}}}}}}}}}

    If Roses Grow in Heaven is a beautifully touching poem which honors those moms. The author of this precious poem is unknown. Special changes were made.

    If Roses grow in Heaven,
    Lord please pick a bunch for HZ, Judith, and Susanne.
    Place them in their Mother’s arms
    and tell them they’re from their favorite fan.
    Tell them HZ, Judith and Susanne love them and miss them,
    and when each one turns to smile,
    place a kiss upon her cheek
    and hold her for a while.
    Because remembering their mother is easy
    They do it every day,
    but there’s an ache within each of their hearts
    that will never go away.

    When someone loses a parent, their childhood is shattered. It doesn’t matter if that person is an adult or a child; they are still left with this empty place once filled by the love of their mom.

    A mother’s love is precious. For they love with everything they got. This unconditional love says I love you no matter what. For a mother holds the hand of her child for a little while, but she holds onto their hearts forever.

    **************************************************************************************
    For those hearts which grieve this Mother’s Day, keep this scripture in mind.

    John 14:1-4 says, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

    Warmest and Precious Blessings,
    Cindy

      thank you so much, cindy. you’re so right–a mother loves with everything she’s got. and she also tosses in some stuff she really can’t afford at the moment!

      moms of the world, we know your budget is tight, and your time is crunched, but every hug and smile you give your kids is a treasure that lasts for a lifetime.

        Good Happy Saturday night to you Mr.Bobfr,

        Thank you for your kind words; hoping to lift the spirits of those who are hurting during this time of honoring mothers.
        When I can’t do anything else, I can always pray for, and encourage others.

        Have a wonderful and awesome night!

          Cindy, you are such a beautiful soul. I am always touched by your comments. This one is so beautiful, and I will hold it ever so gentle in my space where my mother’s unconditional love remains forever. I look around and see all of the joyous preparations for Sunday, and I am so grateful to be able to see such love and anticipation for the many gatherings for this Mother’s Day Celebration.

          I have such a sweet peace within my spirit of all of the joy my mother brought to my life so that now even though she is physically no longer in my presence, she is so awesomely present in my heart and my space. I know for sure, she was the one who loved me unconditionally.

          I am so joyful to know that tonight, our beautiful First Lady has her mother with her tonight and God even put them together in the WH. What a memorable celebration that has to be for our beautiful FLOTUS. I pray that they will all have a beautiful celebration tomorrow.

          To all of our beautiful mothers in our TOD family, enjoy each moment as you celebrate your beautiful Roses, Your Mother. Make your day one of joyfulness, loving actions of praise and appreciation, and most of all look for all of the incredible elements surrounding your core that you know your precious Mother made sure that these were a part of that precious core. Be joyful, be blessed, be grateful, and be thankful for all of the love and teachings that you all hold within your hearts that came directly from your precious Mother. Have a wonderful honorable celebration, my Chips and all of my loving TOD family. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{ To all of our TOD Mothers}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}HZ

    Don’t laugh, but when I clicked on this link for a couple of seconds the first half of the video name looked backwards like the name of my new follower [Игорь Невисов] on twitter , so of course my first thought was ‘What is that troublemaker Chips up to now?’

        This will appeal to your warped sense of humour. I plugged the words ‘Игорь Невисов’ into ‘the Google’ to see what I could see. Notice my new follower is listed 2nd. Notice also the mention of your friendly sellers of viagra? { I decided to omit the rest of the dialogue.} ;)

        Person 1: Sur mon compte twitter, je viens d’avoir 4 nouveaux abonnés qui écrivent en russe à ce que je crois.

            Duhuh? I think you and I better not hang out our investigative reporting shingles just yet. ;)

            However, I have to admit that I’m still suspicious/intrigued that Person 2 in my research mentioned sellers of viagra and you, at one time, had been checking out the business possibilities in that area with the friends in your spam accounts. Are you morally sure you are not linked to this in any way?

  11. May 10, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    Tzar Vlad’s propaganda is simply ludicrous …

    “Amazing! A propaganda book about the Odesa tragedy on May 2 evening, looking very similar to another Russian publication called “Neonazis & Euromaidan,” appeared on May 7 in English, in time for the follow-up May 9 holiday weekend. Yet even on May 3, it was not clear what had happened at the Union Buildingg, so were the authors privy to something or is the book was intentionally published to reflect the worst-case scenario according to the Kremlin.”

      This is lovely. As I lost my mother far too soon for me but in her own time, I so appreciate the words and thoughts. She died on this day, just before the Mother’s day weekend 23 years ago. To all those who celebrate memories at this time, my heart is with you. And to all mothers, wishing you a blessed day with family and friends.

        Hi vetivera22,
        {{{{{{{{vetivera22}}}}}}}}

        May you be comforted in your memories of your Beautiful and Loving Mother.

        Farewell, Dear Mother

        Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain,
        Is a smile I still wear at the sound of your dear name.
        The precious word is ‘MOTHER’, she was my world you see,
        But now my heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with me.
        God chose her for His angel to watch me from above,
        To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved.
        The day she had to leave me when her life on earth was through,
        God had better plans for her, for this, I surely knew.

        When I think of her kind heart and all those loving years,
        My memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears.
        She truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in,
        She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin.

        I want to thank you Mother for teaching me so well,
        And though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell.
        I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see.
        Thank you my Dear Mother for all the love you showed me.
        Although you’ve left this earth and now you’ve taken flight,
        I know that you are here with me each morning, noon and night

        Warmest Blessings,
        Cindy

    I shan’t listen to Conchita Wurst’s entry. I’m sure it’s catchy and all, but Eurovision winning songs have a tendency to seize my brain and lodge there for a month. When Germany last won Eurovision, I was heavily watching Deutsche Welle TV. I fucking swear, they managed to insert that fucking song into every news and lifestyle program on the fucking channel. After a month I was fondly considering sticking a needle into my cranium.

    One thing for sure, Ukraine and it’s lust for freedom also demands of every person an awareness of just how deep and expansive Ukraine’s history is. For instance ….

    “Trading Barbs with Putin”
