"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day, I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
"I absolutely do not believe that everything happens for a reason; I never did, and I still don't. I believe that we fashion sense out of the things that happen, and create a kind of meaning in the result."~Alicia Paulson
I miss mama's banana pudding and the Southern Magnolia blooms. I showed mom a pic of my little pink magnolia tree and she said "that's not a magnolia". LOL I had to tell her there is more than one variety of magnolia.
