They not only exist in nature. They are also found in a relationship.
Today we celebrated my mother's 75th birthday. It was a special occasion with all of us gathered around the dinner table. Laughter, gentle teasing, talk of local happenings, and opinions on various issues made the conversation rich.
For a moment I pondered how much my mother's reflection could be seen in all of our lives. Her gentle goodness, love and generosity shines a wonderful light into each of us. The life she has so richly shared with her family is reflected back in the love we have for her.
Time moves swiftly.
I heard Mom say "I don't know how I got to be 75." I had the answer . She got there by loving us each and every day in her special way.
Bless you for letting me share my day's reflections! Have a wonderful evening.
