mmmmmm

is for many things...

Mothers * Music *Memories * Magazines * Message boards * Money * Marriage * Movement * Medicine * Month of May * Mountains * Mull * Meditation * Mysteries * Moments * m&m’s * Movies * Mail * Mornings * Massages *



Lots of great M words today. I mean, seriously. Music! Powerful for everyone, unifier of the masses. It transports, soothes, encourages, inspires. One of God's greatest gifts is our capacity to make music.

Memories. For better or worse they connect us to our past, and when they're good they are balm for what ails us. Whether poignant or bitter, they tell our story (and are occasionally revised and edited!), and everyone's story has power. (That word keeps popping up. Hmm, the Ps are coming, I should make a note to self...)

m&m's...

Mystery. Keeps you guessing, whether it's the whodunit type, or has a spiritual flavor. Anything unexplained is an avenue for exploration, and with an open and discerning mind the journey in pursuit of a mystery can be quite the adventure. Life-changing at times.

Mail. Who doesn't love to get personal mail? Does it not make our day? An unexpected card, or a cheerful hello from a voice from the past. Good news, invitations, announcements, sales... Okay, sometimes less than good news arrives via the mail, but we'll overlook that for the moment...

And saving the best for last, Moms. My Mom. She is the absolute best. Smart, thoughtful, sensitive, humorous, compassionate, creative, hospitable, generous, communicative, did I mention thoughtful? She's one of the most thoughtful people I know. I think she's pretty self-less, too. And a bit of a stoic, as recent events have demonstrated. She's a great listener. She is the queen of brownies and birthday banners and so, so much more.

Wow, what a resemblance! What a sweet picture. Mom (and now Maggie) are on the top of my "M" list as well, for all the same reasons!
