pink blossoms

It's been a beautiful weekend, and my heart is full.  My life has been blessed in the past few weeks, with love, friendship, and a true sense of joy that I haven't felt in a long time.  I am truly starting to feel happy again.  Our new place has been the biggest gift to Michael and I.  The space, the newness, the beauty of it, and being able to add as much colour as we can in our living environment.  Being close to the river, running the trails, cooking dinners in our open kitchen, and having the best baths in my big tub, has invigorated my spirit.  And on this lovely, warm, Mother's day evening,  I have just planted some colourful plants, to honour Luka, and celebrate my being a mother.   Sadly, my little tree we planted last year for Mother's day, did not survive the winter.  But today, as we visited the plant nursery, with our wonderful friends Dave and Leanne, and their little one, my eyes caught a beautiful pink blossomed hydrangea, and I knew it was the one we would be planting this year.  We are so blessed to have found such true and present friends, who have welcomed us into their lives.  Holding their beautiful baby is a gift, and makes me believe anything is possible.  And so, as Michael cooks dinner, I thank the universe for all it continues to bring me, the beauty of the earth, and the warmth of friendship.  And thank you Luka for visiting in the gentle morning breeze.  Happy Mother's Day, little one.  I love you.
