Celebrating Mother's Day in Bolivia

Today Luka and his school celebrated Mother's Day in Bolivia. They invited us to school for "Muffins for Mom" and he has this present waiting for me. It is so beautiful and I can't wait to hang it in my office in our new house in Chile. The poem that accompanied the handprint tile was so perfect I had to share it with everyone:

Handprint Poem

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.

But every day I'm growing, 
I'll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away.

So here's a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.

Happy Mother's Day!

Lukkie, thank you for being such a wonderful son and joy in my life. I love you!
