While going through some old papers and files last night, I came across some love letters
from my mom to my dad after they had become engaged. The man she was going to marry
(my dad) traveled a lot and these letters are the letters that she wrote to him while he was away. Strangely, it was Valentines Eve when I found them and they were beautiful. It was
a piece of the past that so beautifully expressed their love for each other and the waiting game we all once played. In fact, one had even been written on Valentines Day many years ago. Since my parents are both gone, these letters are especially meaningful to me. It was a gentle reminder on how fast time passes and how fortunate we are to love and be loved.
I adore tulips and three dozen of these wonderful tulips were waiting
for me when I got home from the airport.
Our breakfast table this morning........
I wish you sunshine on your path and storms to season your journey.
I wish you peace in the world in which you live AND in the smallest corner
of the heart where truth is kept. More I cannot wish you except perhaps love
to make all the rest worthwhile. ~ Robert A. Ward
