Mother to Mother





‘You know how it is’ she said
And I do
That feeling of lonely
November blue
Of heart-letting-go
Of un-clenching fists
Knowing Time takes
Even as it gives
And all we can do
Is savor the kiss
Of every moment
…you know how it is

...how, what we can't hold
We cover with prayer
Knowing God IS
Everywhere

Back-to-school packing/moving is kicking into high gear. We have one more week before the house is one girl emptier...
