Words for Wednesday - 09-17-08

If you are regular to my blog, you know that I normally post a Wordless Wednesday picture. In fact, MOST of my blog is full of pictures, not words. Today is different….Today I wanted to document my Yesterday.

As I may have mentioned before on my blog, my Mom has Crohn’s disease. This is not a familiar disease to most. There is no cure, however, there have been a lot of new medicines available since she was diagnosed in 1992. She travels to The University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville every seven weeks for a Remicade Infusion.
My two sisters and brother divide these trips between us. Yesterday was my turn to take her to this appointment.

She came over on Monday evening and we had a very nice time. We got up EARLY yesterday (Tuesday) to travel the 3 hours to her appointment. The appointment lasts about 3 hours, and then we travel home. What a wonderful time we had….just talking in the car being together. We stopped for lunch after her appointment, and to break up the day a little, we visited the P.Buckley Moss Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia. If you are not familiar with this artist – you can find more information here:
I was so inspired by the story of Pat Buckley Moss and her talent. What awesome talent!
Mom really liked the museum, too.

During the trip home I asked my Mom what her favorite Hymn is. She said she LOVES a lot of hymns, but that her favorite may be “Standing on the Promises of God.” I told her that my favorite hymn was “How Great Thou Art”. She then started singing, first her favorite and then mine. And all the while, tears are streaming down my face. It was like I was three years old again, and my Mommy was singing songs to me. As I write this I have tears streaming. I guess words really can’t express the feelings I felt during this time. This will be a moment that I will cherish forever and the highlight of our time together.

Yesterday was such an AWESOME day that I just had to write about it.


The Miracle of A Single Flower

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
~ Buddha


The Miraculous in the Common

The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Let Go Of The Fear

Let go of the fear that holds you to the ground and fly.
 — Brandy Nacole


Be A Helpful Friend

 Be a helpful friend, 
 and you will become 
a green tree with always new fruit,
 always deeper journeys into love.


Walk With The Dreamers

Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it...  
~ Wilferd Peterson


Beautiful Reserve

One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve.
- Henry David Thoreau


They Speak To Me

The beauty of the trees,
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass,
speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars,
the trail of the sun,
the strength of fire,
and the life that never goes away,
they speak to me.
And my heart soars.

-  Chief Dan George  


Along The Bank

I heard the old, old, men say 'all that's beautiful drifts away, like the waters. 
~ William Butler Yeats
