Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. ~ Rachel Carson

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace.

The earth has music for those who listen. ~ William Shakespeare

My mom passed away very suddenly on November 29, 2011.  I am at such a loss I can barely stand it.  This picture is one I took of her with Kat at Sleeping Bear Dunes this summer.  They were two peas in a pod.  Mom, you are (and always will be) greatly missed!

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men – from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.  ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
