4. 37  percent increase in activity of natural killer cells (immune system) after women spent a few hours walking in the woods according to a Japanese study. Plus the boost lasted for over a week.

Poem Friday On Saturday – Happy Mothers Day Mom

IMG_1711

This woman, a Mother Of three
Was the responsible for the increase of the Mackie Family tree

A Grandmother,and Great,and Great great Grandmother
29 is the number and one other to come, a grandchild to my Brother

We had a reunion of all the Grandchildren bar two
Mum in the middle, So many she could only remember the name of a few

My Brother Barry whom I believe would have been looking down
My Mother survived my Brother, and his memory remains with all of his Grandchildren running around

This is a photo of Mom my brother Frank and me
All her Grandchildren from us three

If you are interested I am the one with the blue shoes
Hey look at Mums face, this whole procedure did not amuse

IMG_1656

My Mom is looking pretty good though at 95, as you can see
Actually in years to come that could look like me

So Mom love you and that day was great for all of us
Lots of kids, great food, lots of laughs and not a great fuss

Without you Mom we would not be on this Planet Earth
Without you Mom all these kids, they would not have been given birth

With Respect and Love, the beautiful woman you have become
Have a great day and I wish you a Happy Mothers Day Mom

Last Night Together

Hate is a word that I do not use lightly.

I hate War. The pain that it inflicts on Mothers, Fathers, Wives, Girlfriends and Children is a lifetime scar on their hearts. 

My heart goes out to this young woman, I cannot even imagine the ache she must feel, the tears she has shed and will shed for some time to come. 

May her Angel be at her side  in all that she does.

2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. “I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said. “I think that’s what he would have wanted.”

May Every Day Be Mother’s Day For You!

Happy Mother’s Day
By Lesley Voth

She has been around for almost 94 years
She is wise, a comforting strength, seen happiness and tears

She indulges in a wine each day about 5 o’clock
She says, “it’s so nice, makes you feel what you’re not”

She and I don’t always agree
but that is natural and will always be

My Mom is a great character with good humor
Loves to go shopping; avid shoe and clothes consumer

My Mom makes the most of all that comes her way
Simple life, no stress, sits in the sun and reads the paper every day

So Mother’s Day is really something retailers invented
Shopping hours purposely extended

But, I celebrate my Mom all year round
She is love, laughter, and a sparkle compound

Happy Mother’s Day Mom
Enjoy and have fun.
