May 19th (for Joel)

Today is the 25th Birthday of my eldest son. It's been a phenomenal Journey and I think he has taught and given me as much as I have given him.  I still marvel at the blessings my sons are in my life. Motherhood called to me through Joel and his brothers...while I cherish the memories, and wonder where the time went, given a choice I'd rather spend five minutes with the man he is today than go back and hold the baby that he was.  Besides, that baby is held in my heart each and every day.
No top hat 
No wand 
No spoken incantation
With a sigh 
You arrived 
A Cool, Cool Breeze
Blowing through my life. 

Resilience Is

Diminish me?
No finish you!
Replenish mindbodysoul 
Never empty 
Ever bold 
 Never sold

Wednesday: At The End Of The Day

Plunking down heavily she was weary from cajoling, redirecting and endless teachable moments.  She wondered if she would ever simply be "Mom" to her son.
