Dear Daughters

IMG_4602

Dear Daughters,


This beautiful flower journeyed to my

yard ,

initially as one of several bulbs,

in the hands

of Enedelia,

a humble, and wonderful lady.



There is an odyssey of sorts here.



Her sister in Mexico grows these flowers,

who gave the bulbs to a second sister,

who in turn gave them to Enedelia,

who gave a few bulbs to me.

I don’t know if there is a pleasure more genuine than that.


I hope you always remember that.

There are all sorts of ways of looking at things,

but Enedelia’s generosity

says it clearly.

*Share what you enjoy with someone who enjoys the same thing.



*Share your offering in its humblest form and not in

its store bought form.



You clip the cutting, share the bulbs , bake the bread, or

make the pot of soup.


*Enjoy what happens next.

Love,

Mom

When you "write" a letter to your daughters, I always add my name in parentheses after the dear. I need instruction too you know, to be abundantly happy.

Such a beautiful truth Laura. I just may pass your post on to my own two daughters. There is always a little of ourselves to share and not the store bought kind. Love it.
