Love this tree

I love trees. But you knew that already.  The other day I was in Old Torrance, visiting Momen+ and drooling over very expensive fabrics. As I stepped out of the car to meet my friend, I saw this tree.

 Or rather I saw this scar on a  tree. 
Isn't it lovely?
But even more... 
I look at it and the poet in me sees a heart in the place where pain occurred. 
An entire limb is lost and what remains is beauty
 and heart.
I have been through a lot lately. 
I want my scars to make me more beautiful.

Mommy daughter matching

I love getting these images from mommies. They make my day! I met this mommy shortly after she had adopted (I believe from Ethiopia). She bought the skirts for herself and her daughter and waited for her little pumpkin to grow into it. She finally did and I was so happy to see this pic in my inbox today.
What joy! so many ways .. And you all know how much I love adoption on any level... I keep peeking back at the pic and finding myself smiling.
