Sunday was, of course, Mother’s Day. The day has now turned somewhat painful in light of having Mom in heaven, not here. But I chose to try and focus on all the things around me that Mom would have seen and taken in. The last couple of years of her life she had a profound appreciation for nature and the changing of the seasons. On a spring drive she once commented that she sees things totally different than before, and that colors even seemed more brilliant to her. So I looked for that. And found it. Thanks Mom, for opening my eyes even wider than they were before. I miss you and love you dearly. Dad is doing really well and we’re keeping a close eye on him. All his needs are met, his groceries are bought although he is probably eating way to many sandwiches. That’s slowly changing though. Just give him a little time to adjust. He misses you and loves you so much. But you know that. so enjoy the images that I saw and thought of you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day!
|For you, Mom, I watched ducks on the water, and the fish swimming|
|I spent time thanking God for you, Mom, which I try to do every day|
|You helped me see beauty in simple things|
you would have seen the elephant picking up
the large branch on the ground - do you see it, too?
|You loved the flowering trees|
|and among the dead leaves and branches - life still emerges!|
