Hope in the Quiet

Baboquivari Mt. (Sacred Mountain of the Tohono O’odham Nation)
January 17, 2019

 

as the day draws to a close

I draw in the quiet of the setting sun…

I sit and thank God for all that I lived this day…

for all that I experienced and the joy received…

then I think of things I could have done better…

and ask for forgiveness…to develop more an attitude of living “for – giving”

then I drink in all the sweet, beautiful colors of the sunset…

and recall how much my Ma understood me…and knew how I loved the sunsets…

though I do not know if I ever explicitly said so…she knew…

that is the thing about Moms…they know even when we are silent…

absorbing the world around us….I can’t look at the sunset without thinking of my Ma…

she is a part of me every day…

I was blessed last January to see and experience part of the Southwest with my dear friend, Pat…

camping on the mountain facing Baboquivari Mt., or the Sacred Mountain of Tohono O’odham Nation…

a peaceful place to BE…

Memories like this are good to relive!

They give us strength and remind us of the GOOD in this world!
