Dedicated to my baby daughter,
to whom I just gave a teary hug, and kiss goodbye,
as she departed for her extended adventure in Spain.
She will be studying at university in Seville over
the next several months. This will be the greatest
length of time and distance we have ever been separated.
I am so proud of this child of mine, who I nicknamed
“butterfly baby” when she was small;
A remarkable young woman
who is kind, strong, sensitive, brilliant and 100%
Spread those wings
I Love You,
Sometimes when we seek the
song of our heart,
we discover the
Happy Thanksgiving to All!
Just as the magnificent sun shines high in the sky,
my Mother’s light illuminates the heart of each
soul who is so blessed to know her smile,
her kindness, her radiance…her Love.
Happy Birthday Mom;
I Love you Always!
The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word “Mother,”
and the most beautiful call is the call of “My mother.”
It is a word full of hope and love, a sweet and kind word
coming from the depths of the heart.
The mother is everything– she is our
consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery,
and our strength in weakness.
She is the source of love, mercy,
Everything in nature bespeaks the mother.
The sun is the mother of earth and gives it its nourishment of heart;
it never leaves the universe at night until it has put the earth to sleep
to the song of the sea and the hymn of birds and brooks.
And this earth is the mother of trees and flowers.
It produces them, nurses them, and weans them.
The trees and flowers become kind mothers
of their great fruits and seeds.
And the mother,
the prototype of all existence,
is the eternal spirit,
full of beauty and love.
“If you listen to certain photographs very carefully,
you will hear faint echoes of
“We welcome love into our lives
when we come to trust
that the doors of our
hearts are best
Because of its open heart-shaped spathe and tropical look, the Anthurium flower is considered worldwide to be the symbol of hospitality. This shy yet seductive plant says : ‘Come on in, you’re welcome here.’

On this day
His year begins;
There’s birthday cake
Food, games and grins.
He blows his trumpet
Gifts us with tunes;
Sister accompanies on guitar,
Till guests are aswooned.
When celebrations are over
And all has been said,
He greets his 12th year
By cascading his head!
Dedicated with love to my niece and nephew
on their 12th birthdays

“What is important is that you taught me to believe in myself, persist in the face of adversity, consume knowledge and wisdom, and then mold and shape my best life. There will literally be thousands of parents at graduation next weekend, but very few of them taught (and modeled) wisdom to their children the way you have for me and Case, and that’s why we are who we are.
That’s what this moment in my life is about…”
* a brief excerpt from a recent letter sent to me by my daughter Marysa
So very proud of this brilliant and beautiful child of mine. Her note brought me to tears, as I reflected on the love and deep wisdom she displayed even as a small child. She graduates university summa cum laude on Sunday. I am so thankful to be here (after being uncertain till this morning if I would be able to come due to my ongoing medical challenges), and plan to participate in the weekend’s events every way I possibly can. There is no greater gift a child can bestow upon a parent than the one she has given us, merely by living her truth, and being the magnificent soul she genuinely is.
I Love You Marysa!
