Thoughts of my MOTHER come crashing at year's end.....
SHE died at 57~~~I was 31
One's mother is the guide post~~
the true NORTH STAR of one's life.
When I think about my MOTHER...these thought's surface..
She was gracious in a very quiet sort of way
She was BEAUTIFUL
She was so very FRENCH
She was giving..but that trait was stifled at every turn
Her laugh was joyous and her smile even more so
Her favorite color was RED
She worked harder than anyone I have ever known
She had her own private demons she was never able to put to rest
As I sit here on this cold rainy day..I realize that I let her personal struggles cloud my vision of her...I harbor regret for that.
I loved her dearly
She was my guide post and my compass
My TRUE NORTH.
this last photo is a painting I purchased...it had no title...I have titled it JACQUELINE....It reminds me so much of my beautiful mother. Jacqueline was her name.
gentle hugs dear friends,
