Mothering by Heart
This morning I woke at 5:45am. The house was silent. Outside our open window the doves began to coo. I blinked, rolled over and then I remembered. I have treasure tucked away in the guest room downstairs. Both of my grown baby birds and their spouses are here. For the first time since we moved to Hawaii all of us are together in this tropical nest. Last night when I slipped into bed the four of them were still out on the lanai, talking in hushed tones and laughing under the stars.
Oh, the bliss of the golden moments of motherhood.
