Celebrate Beauty

I grew up with beauty.

My mother finds beauty, creates beauty, and brings out the beauty of others. She has filled our lives with distinctive and unusual beauty. I am empowered by the beauty she has taught me to see.

This photograph is from a whimsical quilt that mom made for my daughter, Mirella. It features pictures of our family trip to Europe. This picture of mom and Mirella is taken in Heidelberg, where mom was born. A beautiful quilt to commemorate the beauty of a castle created long ago.

Happy 60th birthday, mom. I celebrate you.

I love the sentiments of Shannon, what a tribute to a great mother.
