Happy Mothers’ Day!
To women who have shared a close & loving bond with another woman who mentored, nurtured, loved, & encouraged them — be they mother, aunt, sister, daughter, niece, or friend — & to women and girls who might yet be seeking a mother in their lives, & to
those of us for whom our cherished memories of our loving mothers are firmly etched
in our hearts forever.
P.S. The significance of the yellow rose in the wallpaper I created (above) is that it was my late Mother’s favorite flower. The perfection of the layered petals seem to me to be embracing each other—enveloping the petals in a cocoon of love. And the yellow color is so cheerful, brightening our days. To honor my Mother’s memory, I included yellow roses in my bridal bouquet and in my attendants’ bouquets–and the yellow rose’s dark green leaves were reflected in the emerald green of my bridesmaids dresses–at my wedding twenty-six and a half years ago. The meaning of yellow roses is said to embody “friendship, joy, & good health”. May you experience these gifts—and may you also share them with others. Love & Hugs! Gratiana
