Thinking of my dear mother on this first Mother's Day without her. Missing her laughter, her wisdom, her love.  Grateful for the years we had.


A mom reads you like a book, and wherever she goes, people read you like a glowing book review.

It is hard to remember when I was not a mother.  It has been almost twenty-one years, a lifetime of memories and learning.  Being a mother is the most sanctifying, gratifying work I have ever done.  





  I am unbelievably blessed by these goofballs.

Happy Mother's Day!

hi Di,

glad to be back where i can get my morning 'circle of quiet'! and happy and thankful that missing your mom doesn't keep you from being grateful for the years you had together. i think there's an unhealthy kind of grief, and there's a healthy kind--a kind that's a natural and proper result of separation from a beloved. the grief that is mingled with gratitude is definitely the healthy kind.

hope you had a wonderful mother's day!

I'm "with" you...my dear mother passed away last Dec. 15th, and this is my first Mother's Day without her. She was almost 89, so she had a great life, but I still miss her dearly.....
