breath of spring

Today is my mother’s birthday. She would have been 93 this year. She couldn’t have been born on a more appropriate day.

Mama was light, and mirth, and joy. She was happiness, enthusiasm, and energy.

She was creative, and stylish, and young at heart – even when she was old.

My mother was a breath of fresh air, an encourager, and a promoter.

She was loyalty, and determination, and depth.


Happy Birthday, Mama. Thank you for bringing the new life of Spring into our lives all year long, and throughout all your years. I love you.

    You do so many things so well in this piece…such a special piece. I love the descriptors in threes. Threes are significant…your mama is significant. 🙂 Such beautiful descriptors at that. I also like the way you connect her to spring…something we all know, when we didn’t all get the pleasure of knowing her. Because of this connection, I begin to understand a little bit more about the ways your mama impacted you. What a celebration! b
