Meadow Dreams And A Mother's Heart
Every mother will know the heart searching involved in moving away from her children. Every decision we make, from the birth of our first baby, includes reflecting on how it will affect our children. My offspring possess generous hearts. Their Mother's Day cards contained personal, heartfelt notes of encouragement. Once found, thoughtful, loving, words congratulated me on finding the house they forsee as a haven.
For my children, and all who find their way to my door, I offer this verse:
May this house shelter your life.
When you come home here,
May all the weight of the world
Fall from your shoulders.
from For A New Home, by John O’Donohue
I haven't seen the property since our offer was accepted. We hopped on a 'plane back to Calgary early the next morning.
This is the meadow with red chicken coop to match the barn. Below is how I might tweak it. I admit the pace of work has slowed as I indulge in daydreams.
