Mother’s Tears

there is no way to describe the tears

like a mother missing her child

there is no way to describe the love

it is intense and not mild

life is a constant “letting go”

tears come from the deep

and there they grow

as love transcends all that we seek

    Jane, I’ve crashed three times to comment. I haven’t seen the entire post but I just wanted to say what I have seen, has really moved me. I’m having tons of probs, still. I am doing the best I can. Love, Amy


    • dear Amy,
      I hear you regarding “crashing internet”—so frustrating! I love YOUR blog and your lovely thoughts! You are an angel of poems!

        Jane, I really really thank you for your Loving words to me. Yes, this is so frustrating that both WP and now Apple I am dealing with, both throwing wrenches in my smooth ride I had developed in blogging. So, I am now in the process while I am beginning to close down my gardens, to actively think of ways to get myself back up to where I was, volume wise. I was touching hundreds of people a day, my friend, in comments, and darn it, I will get back there again. I won’t be deterred in my passion for what I do both on Petals and behind the scenes. Bless you for being in my life, and encouraging me at a stage of my life where I seem to be getting hit and hit and hit. Bless you!!!! Love, Amy


      • dear Amy, YOU will succeed…YOU…your thoughts…your beautiful garden and nature photos are needed to bring LIGHT into our world! YOU WILL SUCCEED! Blessings from me and my prayers…the Loving Universe is with YOU!

        Jane, it is occurring to me that with me being hit and hit and hit some more, I’ve been either tested to see just how much integrity and endurance I really have, OR, those who do not like the Light and oppose Love, are trying to dissuade me from continuing my Work. Well, I have news. I will not stop. I will succeed, just like you say. I shall continue persuing my Passion that burns in my breast …. to bring Love, Light, Truth, and Beauty into this world. Thank YOU for encouraging me!!! Bless you, my friend! Love, Amy


      • dear Amy, We both have been there and some days I find I am back in a mess. You and I will succeed! We will find a way because we are NOT going to give up! VERY GOOD POINT—maybe it is not so much a “test” of your endurance and integrity—maybe it is to SHOW YOU YOUR TRUE SELF! YOU are a person of INTEGRITY and TRUTH and BEAUTY! Maybe it is a reminder to us to BELIEVE in OURSELVES…that is WHERE it must start. I know I have lots of work to do in that area. Sometimes I let my failures overwhelm me but I need to let LOVE permeate my person…and bask in that. I have found good friends on WordPress, and YOU are one of them. Another just spoke to me via the phone–and I know she is my friend and she is waking me up to positive action. Now I have to do it! Blessings, Amy! We will make it!

        Jane, I have every confidence in you that what needs to be brought forth out of the chaos will. Even as you are, right now, you are Perfect in all your mess. Yes, even now. Keep focusing on Loving you, and stay away from the “oh if I only had done _____”. Stop beating yourself up what will not change. LOVE is the answer, even if you cannot feel it. I just told someone else that for well over one year just lately, my life was totally absolutely a mess. I didn’t recognize it, nor me. But I kept on trudging along, determined to keep doing what I do at Petals. Yes, I was going through the motions. Yes some days I actually felt an inkling of Love and Light. But then down I went again into the Void. I faked it until I made it. I made it, Jane, and so will you. You keep the faith that this too shall pass, and that a New Order will come out of this blackness, this awfulness you are in now. It is happening for a reason. I will keep you in my prayers. I just came in from working about 3 hours in my gardens, and that is it for the day. I still have Yoga to go to tonight, so I must lay down to get off my feet for a while. I have just the thing to take with me. A good book. YAY, I am reading books again. I am taking more time for ME!!! BIG (((HUGS))) Amy


      • Thank you, Amy, so much! Thank YOU for the encouragement! Yes…I will keep going forward! I promise you! Thank you! Hope you have or are having a restful night. The grandchildren are asleep and I am getting close to that myself! LOL…Thank you so very much for your support!

        Jane, you are more then welcome. We are all in this thing we call LIFE together. I really didn’t say much when I was going through my nightmare, because of the “role” I have at Petals. Going through what I do in my personal life only makes my desire to help others that much stronger. Try to enjoy the weekend. Just one tiny step at a time, and don’t look ahead. Just see NOW. That is all you can do at the moment. (((HUGS))) Amy
