A valentine wish for you ...

May your day be filled with love.

May your heart be filled with joy.

And most of all,

May you see the world

Through eyes of gratitude.

The backstory:

When I look at this self portrait I’m reminded of my dear mother. Momma doesn’t remember much of her life—except for Important things. She remembers to drink her “Green drink” every day, to get outside in the sunshine, and to read a good book. She plays piano for the rest-home every afternoon at 2pm, makes sure she gets to the special movies and activities provided by the home, and won’t eat sugar unless it’s in the form of ice cream. She also still takes her vitamins daily.

My mother taught me the value of choice, letting go, and being courageous. She taught me to look for the good in everyone. And, Momma taught me the most important thing of all ... Gratitude.

After all, it’s a beautiful life.
