Trailblazer of Love

Today is my mother’s birthday.
She baked two cakes « in case anyone comes over » my mother is thoughtful of others even on her birthday.

Birthdays highlight the time that has passed between one year to the next, There is a tradition in Provence to take one of the lite candles from the birthday cake and to watch it slowly burn down and while it is doing that to reminisce about the year that has passed. When I think of the year that has passed for my mom my heart is full, it hasn’t been as one would have hoped. And yet here she is baking cakes to greet those who will certainly come to visit her.

My mom is a hero when it comes to trail blazing faith, courage and above all love.
