A Gift From My Mother
Her posture defies the fragility of glass defining her structure. One hand stretches to the skies, the other she plants firmly on her hip. The fire red of passion bleeds with the sunshine of hope, a current of energy flowing through the solid base of her body. Six inches tall, she is a figure of empowerment, a symbol of determination, a woman with confidence. Placed on the corner of my writing desk, she reminds me anything is possible when one follows the path of the heart, when one reaches for the wisdom of angels.

I see a woman who is strong, but has a softer side that allows her to be flexible.

" . . . the wisdom of angels." Sounds beautifully familiar, perhaps like deciding to make wine instead of striving for perfection? Your Mom knows you well.

I have already gone back and read this over several times. When I read "follows the path of the heart" your name, Mary, replaces those words in my mind. As you always do, in word and in action, you follow the path of YOUR heart. Another meaningful gift to all of us this month.....not only thoughtful words but sharing the picture of your art glass piece. She reflects who you are, Mary, in so many ways.
