“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.

It is then burst into flame, by an encounter with another being. 

We should all be thankful for those who rekindle our inner spirit.”


Albert Schweitzer



I was feeling so down and out

When my mother passed away

But now, I really like to believe

That she sent a loving gift my way


I called my Mom ‘Little General’

A tiny woman, but always in charge

She knew how to keep her kids in line

Her body was small, her heart quite large


And my Mom had always loved to tease me

About my fondness for animals, my entire life

When I was about to marry Rebecca she told her

“I hope you know, he loves dogs more than wives!”


And shortly after my mother left this earthly realm

I happened to find a tiny, homeless, pregnant canine

Little Lupita reminds me so much of my own mother

Just like Mom, she knows how to keep her kids in line


She is tiny, stern, loving, and so very protective of her offspring

And, when they don’t listen to her, she knows exactly what to do

I now like to think, that the Little General sent Little Lupita, my way

Knowing in her loving heart, this tiny Mom would help relieve my blues


I was feeling so down and out,

When my mother passed away;

But now, I really like to believe,

That she sent a loving gift my way.


Thank You, Little General,

And, Happy Mother’s Day;

As I gaze upon this tiny Mom,

I will be thinking of you, today.

It is amazing sometimes just what our parents often bestow upon us that we don't even realize sometimes.

Beautiful dedication to a well loved mother.
You certainly know how spirits are my friend, and the kind spirit of your little Mom will always be with you, are you sure, you didn't grow up in the same shoe box as me, a tiny woman general, etc, as I said before..... Bless ya! Jasmin Horst
