this is mama.

Standard

dropped off the family entries

to the library’s annual lego building contest

there were so many good ones to see

 elaborate, creative, funny, scary, lovely, colorful, detailed

some were quickly assembled

some took many hours and days to create

some made by children, some by adults,

some made by both working together

but it was the one above that really caught my eye

it was beautiful because

it was clearly made by someone

out of pure love

created by ivy, a preschooler

 her piece’s title

written by someone

who knew how to write their letters

simply read:

‘this is mama.’

 it was magnificent.

and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

a relaxed and wonderful evening 

spent with my three daughters

dinner at the prickly pear cafe

then

movie and laughs and talk  

just the four of us

enjoying each others’ good company.

because of them

i have always known

that

four is my lucky number.

for irish katie who loved the world

and

left way too early

and

for her daughter rachel

who inspired 

the happy nods of her mother’s head

and

who carries on

under the beautiful light

of her mother’s smile.


“death leaves a heartache no one can heal,

love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

-from an irish headstone

– and for all of those who have loved and lost someone dear to them

early mother’s day surprise movie present

 courtesy of

my daughters

who remember prince and his music

as a part of their days

growing up with me

and 

we 

watched him on the big screen

and

sang and danced

with 1,000 other people 

of all ages

who remembered him too

and we even

smuggled in food

in a big purse

just like the days 

when we didn’t have a lot of money

but we did have

a lot of dollar movies

a lot of music

and

a whole lot of love.

happy mother’s day to all who mother

and to those who really know their mothers.
