oh heavenly day... a tribute to my family






















Thank you for each and every moment with my family...





































Thank you for every moment, the struggle, the pain, the laughter, the joy, the unbearable joy of love, tremendous and infinite love...

It is worth everything....



It is, in the end, everything






















“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,

to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First to let go of life.


Finally, to take a step without feet.










.......OH!




I am in love with being a part of a family





For better or worse we take each other,




cleave, nurture, hurt and heal, we are a pack, and we are each other's witnesses
in a life that often feels very lonely,






we are never without a hand to hold
a heart to love, a sanctuary.










I am in love with my family!

I love that feeling... like you are going to burst from the sheer "everythingness" of it all. Family.

So beautiful. That song and Patti's voice. I used it on my own blog, a while back. I have always felt that that song spoke about family and hardship, that it was my Sophie's voice, herself. I love your blog, Maggie May, your love for your family is so deliciously infectious. I love your honesty and your writing. Thank you.
