An impromptu bit of writing. . .

I left this note on A country farmhouse

I didn't want to lose it from my memory, though I did a bit of tweaking to it.  I am happy to find this blog renewing my love of writing and putting things in order creatively.  It is such an important part of who I am, but difficult to find kindred hearts to commiserate.

 My children are my life, a responsibility like no other. There is no greater earthly gift.  Each day, each month, each year, they become, achieve, accomplish with an unnoticed stepping away from my hand, fingertips. But this is my life's work as parent, meant to be, the reward so sweet, for they are beauty blessed.  I must as parent, love them well.
