on your day

.........................happy birthday mum


Dearest Mum,




thank you. as i look back now , being a mother myself I see you did so much for me. providing opportunities for me to do things, taking me places so I could learn and quench my thirst for involvement. you were the most patient teacher and I am so grateful for the skills and the knowledge you passed on to me. you taught me how to cook, crochet , knit, sew, collage and be resourceful with the things we had at hand ...and to love unconditionally.




those skills have served me well and I hope I am able to pass on this innate wisdom to my children.




you always encouraged my creativity and thankfully you could see my potential and valued my creative spirit and as a young girl who grew into a life loving woman, I now see these skills as sacred and heart thriving ....a bloodline to my creativity and my soul.




thank you for believing in me.
