This is the kind of moment that makes a mother proud.  Actually, it's more than 6 moments, but you know what I mean.

This Mother's Day started off happy, but it's deteriorating into a bout of deep sadness, wishing my mom was here on earth, so I could call her and wish her a happy day and thank her for everything she ever did for me.  You know, I don't think I ever did that.  Make sure you do it.

In lieu of my earthly mother, I went out in the rain, with my feet bare, and picked all the beautiful flowers I could find on the side of my house to decorate my Blessed Mother's altar.

And now, I'm going to sit down, knit, and pray for my dear friend who has a new baby and is happy to be alive.  And I know her children are happy about that, too.

That first piece, Divenire, is a little melancholy.  Cheer up with this ensemble piece.  You can't see my son in this video.  :-(


  1. I love the melancholy one. Happy Mother's Day!

    It's been an emotional day for me too, for no known reason, other than maybe every one has expectations that are never met. :-(

  2. I had no expectations...which was good. All I wanted was to spend the day relaxing and knitting after a very long week. My one child who could not be home was very thoughtful and sent a gift and called later in the day. Sometimes I think the melancholy is due to regrets about not being the mother we want to be.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
