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. :-(
