Participating in Lisa-Jo’s 5 Minute Fridays. 5 minutes to write about one word. Unedited.
Her face had lost its usual bloom. My words had cut.
Radiance, luster, sheen, glow. This is her default face.
How easy it is to spew words in frustration and irritation. Teenage years can bring out the worst in us Mama’s.
Oh to remember the true Gardener & how He cares. Patient, gentle, always tending. Aware.
She is resilient & responds well to apologies. Her forgiveness quick, light returns.
Her essence goes out to all around, eyes slant and twinkle like her Daddy’s
She complains that they disappear when she smiles.
It is my favorite.
If only she could see how she glows, how light shines bright, even through cracks.
Her beauty mesmerizes me at times; cheeks pink, lashes long, that beautiful smile.
This creation, I created with the help of the Creator.
I think of her and I too, glow.
