lonesome love

This is week is Valentine’s Week. My husband, Vinny Sal and I were married 26 years ago on the Hawaiian Island of Maui in Lahaina on Febuary 14, 1993. My friend and photographer, Julia is vacationing there this week with her family. She is sending me albums of photos she has taken and I am truly inspired!

lonesome love - maui

an old tree
nothing between them
but the sea

lifting up
whispers from the waves
her prayer

faithful heart
she waits on the shore
his return

Prayer

Praying the Psalms

So many praying to be free all over the world. Each wanting to love and be loved.

Asylum

Asylum

A mother will always strive to save her child. Often in dire circumstances, she must choose the best of the worst options.

May we choose empathy towards a mother’s plight to save her children and pray for God’s mercy, peace and love for all.

A special Happy Father’s Day to my husband, Vinny Sal who is the best man I could have agreed to partner with to create our two sons, Leonardo and Christian. Blessings to you, My Love!

May all the dads and mentors have a blessed Father’s Day today.

Peace on Mother’s Day

 

Earlier today, I was texting with a girlfriend I have known since elementary school. We talked about the difficulty in keeping our own mothers happy. Although all the children were grown, our mothers became widows at a fairly early age. My mother has since remarried twice. Yet each of us still can’t quite seem to please our mothers no matter how we try. Are all mothers like this we both wondered?

Later in the afternoon my oldest son came home to give me a lovely peace lily plant. I still have the peace lily plant from my father’s funeral in 1990. I replanted it and now I can’t seem to get it to grow back to its former glory. Perhaps both peace lilies are trying to tell me something about relationships.

 

Mother's Day 2018

 

May all mothers find peace this Mother’s Day.
