“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.”
As I reflect on a life filled with such beauty and tenderness ~ sweet amazing Maria ~ I’m reminded of this simple quote by Rumi.
My heart is filled with deep and meaningful memories as a mother. I cherish that, and always will. What an incredible celebration of her life this summer ~ more beauty added into my heart. These photos portray a part of her story~
There she is not long ago, walking on a beach in Florida, a number of years ago giving a squeeze to her mum, a rose being sent into the ocean to accompany her final release , and, then, the final release into that magical deep blue water in Hawai’i ~
Such Grace and wonderment~ You are a beautiful soul, Maria! I will forever reflect on your gifts and feel joy in being your mum:)
