As I listened to the sounds of Jono leaving and coming back with groceries for a spectacular french toast breakfast with fresh mango and strawberries
As I watched the sun fill up the bedroom and contemplated my life as it has been, as it is and as it will be
I realized in a flood of joy that what I have is all I've ever wanted.
I am truly happy. From the heart and the soul and from the mysterious poetry of my DNA which has sung and spun and whispered and hollered it's desires from the beginning...
When I came downstairs and saw the flowers, found the 70 degree air, was kissed and loved from the inside and the outside all at once
When I got my very first ever mother's day greetings from the world
When I looked at the computer and found mother's day stories, experiences and wishes from other mother's who I love so much
I realized in a flood of pleasure that my fortune is great to be where I am, when I am, surrounded by the very best of people, the very best of wonderful mamas & the very best of loving friends and family.
I wish the best for all of us. The sons and the daughters who become the mamas and the papas...
And I'm grateful for the help and the reminders that the ups and downs are a part of it all. (wink, wink Cami!)
