Sending my condolences. I know how hard it is to say goodbye to a parent. The zentangle Maria did in her honor tells me she was someone special. May God bless you and your family during this time and always.

I'm sorry for your loss. This is my first visit to your blog. I was introduced (formally) to Zentangles just yesterday. I am smitten, and have already done 2 of them. I have purchased more books (bought one yesterday, and ordered the rest today). I also subscribed via email. I think this is going to be great for me as I can't draw in the artistic sense of the word. I'm primarily a rubber stamper, but I can see the 2 worlds melding very nicely. Hugs and thoughts of healing energy, Rockin Robin C

She is as close as your breath, you will see her in many things you do, your very being was inspired by her life example. I believe life is eternal and she has but turned the corner away from your view. How blessed you are to have her for your mother. With love to you both.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. The joy and freedom in your Zentangle is beautiful. Mooka always reminds me of motherhood. The swirl between Betweed looks like hugs. All this,together with the hearts, inside the basket is very protecting..and the soaring lines are joyful. Hold tight to your favorite memories....

Sarah Garrity said...

My thoughts are with you and your family. This is a poem my mother left for us to read after she passed away. It has often brought me comfort when I long for her presence.
I Did Not Die

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.
Mary E. Fry

Sending hugs and sympathy to you along with heart felt tears...that are flowing now as I write this. May God grant you peace and strength in the days ahead. How wonderful and comforting that you were close by her until the end. What a beautiful tangle tribute too. "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted" - Matt 5:4

My deepest sympathy, my mom passed away in August at the age of 91; it's never easy to say goodbye - but it is such a blessing to be together when the time comes.

Angie Gamble said...

May nature touch you with compassion, bless you with sunlight, and send gentle rain to quietly weep with you. May the breeze whisper life that never ends, only that it is changed - that it continues forever in a world more beautiful than our words can describe. My thoughts are with you and your family.
