|A mother's eyes keep watch always, Belle, and her heart and soul carry the pain and burden of struggle and separation. There are no shortcuts... what we fail to learn in youth manifests later in life, I'm sure, and can be even more painful and inconvenient to deal with. The maternal light and love will always steer The Prodigal home to safety. A write to be cherished and shared. May we take courage and comfort from you beautiful words as always, xx|

|Sometimes in our lives, we have to reach out and follow the sun, to make our dreams and goals a reality, if we can. Sometimes we have to tread that winding road of life and learn our lessons the hard way or the best way that we can. Sometimes, we come to a dead end, through no fault of our own. Sometimes, all we can do is sit and cry for our dead dreams and goals that we failed to make our reality. Then sometimes too, we swallow our pride and go back whence we came and admit that we were a fool in the first place. This piece was written from the heart and makes the reader really think, and that is a good thing. Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|It would seem, at least in our minds eye, that "time on our own" is often the "wisest" teacher. So it was for my youngest. Nicely written Belle. Thanks Dick|

|Full of genuine mother love Belle! I'm sure pieces of your heart went with him while he was finding his own path. So much pain in the letting go contractions, more than in the birth ones I have been discovering!
