"Whatever your hands find to do, verily do it with all your might" Ecclesiastes 9-10

To all mothers....
the happy ones, the sad ones,
the cherished ones, the lonely ones,
the young ones, the old ones,
the married ones, the single ones,
the healthy ones, the sick ones,
the free ones, the locked ones,
the respected ones, the persecuted ones,
the special ones, the ordinary ones,
the biological ones, the adoptive ones,
the living ones, the dead ones,
To all mothers...

Pansies.... "Pensées" in French (which means "thoughts"),

Humble, fragile yet strong, colorful, diversified... like so many mothers...

Gratitudes :

- Sandrine, Pierre, Olivier, Laura... my beloved children,

- Gaetano : their father, and my beloved husband

- My mother : she left us 13 years ago, but she still makes me grow up day after day...

- My grandmother : wise, strong, humorous, curious, open-minded... my guide and protector

- Pansies...

Thought of the day :

God could not be everywhere, therefore he created mothers...

(Jewish proverb)


  1. What a lovely photo of a pansy. Happy Mother's Day to you too.
