The Quiet Guest Room

I stood in the entrance way to the carefully decorated spare room. My grandmother, busied herself inside cleaning the room as if someone had been in it. I smiled watching her clear a bit of dust off the wall hangings, light the small candles, and freshen the flowers. I watched on as she carefully laid fresh linens on the bed and fluff the pillows. I knew though that no one had slept in the guest room since I was younger. The room remained quiet in hopes that one day someone would come bounding in and ask my grandmother about the toys that filled the room, and why the hippo was upon the wall. I watched as my grandmother set to work on the quiet guest room humming to herself. Ever so often a smile would creep on her small mouth and she would ask how long it had been since I last spent the night; she knew thought that I was just there for a visit today, it had been this way since my own children had been born. Yet she remained hopeful that I would change my mind one of these visits.

The Mans Space

The Mans Space

The young mans mother sat back taking in the scene before her. She watched as little pieces were put into place as her son and his friends moved about the tiny apartment. Catching his glance, she smiled at her son and wondered where the time had gone. Sitting down at the small table she smiled as she recalled the day she had held for the first time. She sat there remembering every cut, bump, and bruise. She recalled how she felt on the first day of school, kissing her little guy goodbye for the day. Sitting down beside her, her son wiped the tears away. She took his hand and smiled looking at the young man beside her, but seeing the little boy instead. Where had the time gone, she wondered as she watched her son take flight.

Love is Beautiful

Love is Beautiful

Everyone has a story of love gained or love lost. We share these stories with the world around us through various forms of love. The love we have for our families that we are born into, is one that often brings great joy or can be one of sorrow; this is our first love. We grow and form bonds with other people who come into our lives in the form of friendships, our second love is a special bond that we share with those who we choose to give our love to. As adults we find that one person we cannot live without, we create our own family with them; our third and fourth love. Our love is not limited to people though. It comes in many shapes and forms from our pets to a favourite book that we cannot live without. Love is a wondrous thing, it blossoms in the most expecting places and connects us with others. Love is beautiful with you can true love and share it with others.
