Today!

Ticking seconds

Marching minutes

Hurried hours

Optimistic promises

Passionate and determined

Thriving not surviving

Living in the moment

Seeking happiness and health

The ultimate gifts of contentment

Constant state of motion

Purposely moving forward

Never looking back

today

Lillie!

Nurturing, loving, and kind

She lived in a breathtaking house overlooking the mountains

Adorned like a princess with beautiful handsewn dresses she designed just for me

Mixing giggles and laughter as we baked sablé cookies

Magical tea parties for two

Girls’ time afternoons of pampering

Exquisite manicures and makeup

Summer after summer spent at her home

Treating me like one of her own

Lillie, my beautiful Aunt

I am forever

Dante!

A divine comedy

I might say

Blessed with a heart of gold

A bit forgetful at times

May or may not remember

Mother’s Day this coming Sunday

If and when he does

It will be no later than Monday

Bearing flowers and sweets

He will be there in a heartbeat

But if he needs a subtle reminder

I’ll just call and say

Remember me

My favorite Son

Oops I forgot

I have only one

What Matters!

To live

To heal

To persevere

To smile

To laugh

To love

To travel

To explore

To feel

To care

To share

To give

To learn

To  grow

To  be
