I suspect you will have many comments on this posting before the day is out. It strikes a tiny broken place in the hearts of all us mamas. We remember, even if it has been 30 or more years, that moment when they leave after gently being encouraged. It's hard. What we didn't know was that when they come home to visit and then leave again - it's there, that feeling of loss. I remember oh so well standing in the driveway, barely able to lift a waving hand as the van slowly pulled away. It's hard but good at the same time - that's what being a mama is all about.


I haven't been able to read your last few posts without tears flowing. I know it will be better one day, some day.

what a beautiful piece to remember...the necklace is looks as if it hangs perfectly...right by your heart, hhmm?....that mixture of joy and pride and sadness and angst really does a number on us moms, doesn't it...but remember this: home is where mom is. my kids gave me a little porcelain house pin once for mother's day with that inscription on the card. and there's a little heart over the door...the home may be empty but the heart where they really live is always full. hugs to you today....xo

I'm not a mom, but I can only imagine all the emotions that you are going through. Big hugs to you. xxoo


One of the reasons I return to you over and over is because I know you know what it's like to be the mother of wonderful, beautiful baby boys. They're always our babies, aren't they? Sometimes the beauty of their lives brings me to my knees and makes me weep (figuratively speaking). I don't know how I came to be so lucky to be their mom, but there it is. No matter what else happens in this life I'll always know I am their mom. ...... The necklace is gorgeous! I love the silver and the blues. Just gorgeous.


Beautiful! I second everything you said, and feel....


I have one coming home Thursday night, only for 4 days but we will be with all the kids etc. so will be so good....
Funny you wrote about leaving the nest, I found a baby dove that had fallen last night, husband told me to put it back where I found it, I hope it found it's wings and that's why it's gone...


What beautiful emotions worked so beautifully into art. xo


oooohhhh. just gorgeous...this jewelry takes blue skys, birds and empty nests to a new level.

P.S: loving my lucky charm...thank you so much


Every time I read one of your posts it brings tears to my eyes. Sometimes in sorrow ut most times in joy. Your way with words is a balm to my heart. YOu really make me FEEL so much more. Thank you!


My three lovely women are all home right now, but the youngest is heading back to New York tonight and I don't know when I will see her next. The oldest flies back to Hawaii in a week and ditto. I understand your pain and pride and joy. What a blessing to be a mama!

I read blogs everyday. lots of them. I love finding new windows into people's art and lives. but I have never ever felt such life and energy emitting from my computer screen piercing right down to the center of my heart. I cant even explain it. I just read one or two posts and i feel so full like my auntie just gave me a big hug. im trying not to cry at my desk and i dont even know why. i just stopped by to say thank you so much. and thanks for kelly rae to nodding to you in her flying lessons course.
