Life Giving Love
I guess it helps that I grew up with a wonderful, dynamic and inspiring mother and became the daughter of the most generous and kind mother-in-law. They nurtured me into motherhood, holding my hand.
O, these four children...I love these souls on loan to me! They are unique and interesting people. Mother Theresa was so poignant and wise when she said, "How can there be too many children, it's like saying there are too many flowers?!" I wish there were more of them. Welcoming these gifts from God is what life/love is about...life giving love.It was a hard year for my Mother, the first Mother's day without my Nana, her mother. We needed to "include" Nana in the day and so we went to the cemetery. My Nana and my husband's Nan were there and we "visited" them both.
In an unbroken chain, they are the links. Those beautiful souls nurtured their children and their grandchildren. They are part of us, what our lives are about and there couldn't be enough flowers for them...
...so we left just one perfect rose.
