Happy Mother’s Day!

MotherA delicate arch glowing
Red in the evening sun
Lovingly chiseled and shaped by
The hands of God.
Graceful, yet strong enough
To withstand the tests of time
And the storms of nature;
An example of steadfastness
Courage, and faith.
A witness to time, ages,
Laughter, tears, a monument
To which we aspire.
Beauty internal and eternal;
A masterpiece in the making.

-J.H. Schmidt

    Okay, finally got time to breathe. LOL. I loved the pic and the poem. Scenic pictures take my breath away. I hope you had a great Mother’s Day!

  5. I knew which arch that is. 🙂 I was just saying that there are lot through southern utah that I drive by when we go to Utah/Idaho. They really are amazing to see.

  6. Yes they are beautiful, I wasn’t sure if you knew or not and figured it be good to mention it for those who didn’t know anyway. 🙂 It’s been a long time since I have been there, and I don’t think Paul ever has been, someday we’ll make back. 🙂
