  • Heart Surgery

    On Friday, February 18 th, 2005
    In a little frame beside my mirror rests a faded black and white photograph. I do not know the faces, nor do they share my blood lines. Underneath the photo of Victorian-era Mama and child, is a flowery scrawl: “A Mother’s Heart is a Child’s Schoolroom” Simple words. Living truth. Words that I read and

    Sometimes profound moments of insight tip-toe up behind you and tap you on the shoulder. Today I turned around and this is what He whispered … 1. The breath-taking brush of the Master Artist is of another stratosphere entirely in comparison to the Scrovegni Chapel frescoes of Giotto, our current artist study. Carve out the

    Our Kai ain’t talking much. A man of few words he is. At 29 months, he stands as the strong, silent type. Great blue eyes, though. He’s got one line down very well. It’s our favorite (well, we don’t have lots of options, do we? ~smile~) The older 4 children all beg him to belt
