Fly free little bird; Remember the lessons of the flowers

Stretching and flapping her strong wings
this is the eve of our youngest bird
preparing to fly far from the nest.
Across the country
the hallowed halls of law are ready to take our bird
on her chosen path; her next life steps.

I know that as she embarks
on this  journey that our little bird will
take with her the lessons from the flowers.
She will persevere and grow
Silently displaying her inner beauty and strength
She will reach towards the sun, hold fast during storms
and live life fully in bloom.

Fly free little bird. Enjoy, and remember the lessons from the flowers.

Leaving the nest with lessons from the flowers

Stretching and flapping her strong wings
this is the eve of our youngest bird
preparing to fly far from the nest.
Across the country
the hallowed halls of law are ready to take our bird
on her chosen path; her next life steps.

I know that as she embarks on this exciting
unknown journey that our little bird will
take with her the lessons from the flowers.
She will persevere and grow
Silently displaying her inner beauty and strength
She will reach towards the sun, hold fast during storms
and live life fully in bloom.

We Stand Tall to Honor Her

We stand tall to honor

her strength and support.

Selflessly she gave of herself

knowing that one day 

her clan would be confident 

to stand on their own

fly from the nest and understand

that it takes a village to bind

the world in peace and love.

Happy Birthday to my Son

With the promise of the next generation 

his sweet cry announced his arrival into the world. 

Our hearts melted with that first look, touched by his innocence.

Welcome little one; You, our continued legacy 

will be surrounded by love, warmth, and support

for a life with endless possibility.

( Happy Birthday to my son, Cody. He isn’t a baby anymore but our hearts still melt when he walks into a room)

As she dances the steps of innocence

As she dances the steps

of beauty and innocence

even the waves and birds

stop and watch in awe.

My Child with a Broken Heart

What do I say to my child with a broken heart?

I’m so sorry this happened to you.

It will be okay, it doesn’t feel like it, but it will be okay.

We hold him through the tears, we sit with him and let him talk, and sob, just sitting, just feeling.

We reassure him, that he is lovable, he’s a good person, that his dreams will come true.

We text, we call, we make sure he is eating, make sure he is surrounded by good friends and we cry for his pain.

We know as parents that this will pass, that her breaking his heart now was the best outcome before he walked down the aisle in 10 weeks. We saw the divorce happening before they even said their I-do’s. We talked about stopping the wedding at the ceremony. (could we be those people?)

We knew she was absolutely the wrong person for him, but he loved her. His heart loved her.

What do I say to My child with a broken heart? I love you, we love you, it will be okay. You will be okay!
