Are you tired of reading about Mothers? I hope not, 'cause I've got another one today, partly.

Have you considered how much longer
Ago the temple of Diana at Ephesus,
And even Venus? They are old.
And never say you're not attractive.

Hear your heart singing sometimes
And feel the warmth of its love,
And join in your laughter often,
You are beautiful.
--Elaine V. Emans
