For My Girls....
If I could give you a dayor two, I would send you to a cabin in the woods, or a cottage by the sea.
Inside you would find everything that you would need. Soft fluffy pillows, cushy seats and chairs. A pot of the most delicious stew simmering and big homemade biscuits with butter dripping...
But more so I would surround you with a day, were nothing could touch you. I would whisper to the wind to be perfect, not to still, but not to wild, so that when you got out to explore it would surround you, touching your face, moving through your hair, Settling around you like sweet kisses making you soul relax with wonder.
I would beckon to the sun, to be warm but not to warm, to shine it's rays down on you... In such a way, you would know without a doubt how much you are loved.
I would take away all your worries, all the chaos, all the confusion and choices and just for this time... you would be like a child again... free to run, free to play, free to read and dance and sing.
I would send you baskets full of autumn things... orange pumpkins and then a white one, to remind you. Your are Unique, you are you and life's journey is to find that you, separate and apart from all around you.
I would have apples in that basket, red, yellow, Green and gold. Sweet, and Delicious to remind you that everything that grows...first has to go through rain storms, winds, heat and sometimes drought. The result is something of wonder and perfection.
The basket would hold, warm baked goods, pumpkin bread, and wheat bread, persimmon cookies and a cinnamon loaf. The staff of life. So you know There is someone who created you. He is there reaching and waiting...always and forever and will never ever leave. Go to him and he will fill your heart with 'JOY'.
I would add branches to your baskets with fall leaves, gnarled and imperfect, because those are the best kind, there beauty surpassing that of a strait branch...because they had to grow around obstacles and barriers. In these branches you will see your perfection in the making.
I would add Hot chocolate and apple cider to your baskets. so when you feel the warmth on your lips... it brings a smile of contentment. But what you would never know..not ever.. is the whole time you were there, I had a invisible quilt surrounding you, A quilt of love, filled with more wishes and dreams then your heart could ever know. Filled with peace the kind of peace that makes one smile from deep within....
Autumn is arriving, that time of year when the fruits of our labor's are made known. When we get a chance to rest... when days get shorter and nature shows us, all was created by a magnificent hand....take that hand, it will guide you...this I can promise beyond and above anything else.
I love you! and if I could...I would give you the above. Instead my Mothers heart wishes it, thinks it, knows it, and prays for you always and forever.
Happy Autumn beautiful girls!
