When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
What a beautiful collage!
I feel like I know your mom from all the stories you share. I missed out not getting to meet her, yet I feel I haven’t missed anything as she lives on through you and your wonderful gift of story telling. And my god… you could have been sisters you look identical!!
May the many wonderful memories warm your heart with, what Khalil Gibran says, that which has been your delight.
Thanks, Jen. xoxo
Wow! What Jen said! I had no idea you look so much like your mom!! Two beautiful angels: one on earth and one in heaven. Happy Mother’s Day, Jess. XOXO
Thanks, Shilz. Did she make it to heaven? She was pretty naughty! hehe. xoxo
Gorgeous. I’m so beyond thankful and grateful to beautiful Betty for giving us you. xo
Thanks, Lori! I’m pretty glad she did too. haha! xoxox
Love you sis! I’m glad you found a way to celebrate Mama. I was thinking of you last night as I dusted the “Motherless” sculpture you made for me when you were at Chatham, and again as I was driving to work this morning… I realized I was wearing black today and that I subconsciously picked out this outfit last night.
Miss you, Mum! Thanks for giving us Jessica to be a living reminder of you!!
Thanks, Sis. That is so lovely. I look and act a lot like her, so what a heavy (or heavenly?) reminder that must be for you all the time! HA!
Precious remembering… and having gotten to know you a little bit better over the past few months and at the MBI Summit, I wish I could take a peek at the collage that your mum would make about you. I bet she’d be crazy-proud of what she had a hand in bringing into the world!
Thank you so much, Cath. And thank you for that quote! When I was reading your eBook, it stood out to me. They all did, but as I cried I realized it was from a very intense time of incredible delight. Grateful for your work in this world.
Oh dear Jessica, all our emailing yesterday and I had no idea this was such an important day for you. Your mother looks so beautiful, just like you, and I echo what someone else said, how proud she would be of the fabulousness that is you. Arohanui xoxo
Thanks so much, Ali Duffey. xoxoxo
