A Mother’s Love

DOC050715-0001

The Litchfield Hills are a gathering place – a place of homemade memories. As we celebrate Mom this weekend, let’s take time to embrace the natural pause that we’ve been given to appreciate the beauty of home and family. We are so fortunate to call the Berkshires our home, a place where intentional living and sweet memories are a staple – a simple gift in which we’ve treated ourselves.

“When you thought I wasn’t looking”

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat,
and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for me,
and I knew that little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say a prayer,
and I believed that there was a God to talk to.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I felt you kiss me goodnight,
and I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt,
but it’s alright to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw that you cared,
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I looked….
and I wanted to say thanks for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.

Happy Mother’s Day!
