As of yesterday, I’m a grandmother again! So much joy and love in this world!
Today, mothers must dance. And, if you are not a mother, dance with them.
… the retired Ringling Bros. Circus.
The Greatest Show in the World is witnessing:
the sparkle in an older woman’s eyes when the toddler runs to her with arms wide squeaking, “Grandma!”
the squeals of delight attached to smiling faces of children playing in the park
the pride of a loved one who achieved a great accomplishment
the long awaited reunion of members of a family
… and the list goes on.
But what is the greatest of all, of everything that’s meaningful?
Experiencing these feelings of love and joy.
I painted this two years ago while waiting for my grandson to be born. When the joyous bundle arrived, all I had to do was fill in the name.
I painted this on the first day of the Iraqi war and named it “Peace Bubbles.” (I sold this painting and believe it is hanging on a wall in a yoga studio in NYC)
Whatever traditions you celebrate this season, I hope your life is filled with peace, acceptance, grace, hope, kindness, joy and LOVE.
All the best to you, my blogging buds! – Carolyn
