Over Mother's Day weekend I took a look back at my humble blog. It was a fun moment when I checked my first post, and saw that it took place over the same weekend-serendipitous! I wrote it May, 2014, Mother's Day Weekend.
Kid's are older, I'm older, my mother has passed on. Time does so much. I can now see clearer what mom's eyes saw. Things I didn't agree with at the time have come to fruitation, and her wisdom prevails. I think the strongest force on earth is a mother's love. It is still capable of moving hearts even when mom's are gone. A Mother's love is that fierce!
Here is my first blog post:
"Since it is Mother's Day weekend, I thought I would salute the women in my life with excerpts from a column I enjoyed in the Oprah Magazine, 2007.
"HARMONY and BALANCE
Harmony is the agreement between what you think, say and do.
and is the state of stabilty in which you are able to make sound judgements.
WISDOM and COURAGE the ability to make sensible decisions that respect your needs. Courage is the catalyst uniting our thought and actions.
GENEROUS and HAPPINESS True generosity must benefit BOTH parties! No woman can control her destiny if she doesn't give TO herself as she gives OF herself.
CLEANLINESS and BEAUTY Removing clutter and chaos from our lives brings clarity. "
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
