I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

To take care of...

To NURTURE (vb) 1. to care for: feed, nourish  2. educate, train # : foster.
I like this definition. It's all encompassing and for some of us, who didn't take to raising children like a fish to water, I want to say that the hardest and most wonderful effort I ever made was raising two amazing human beings... our sons. It was an awesome responsibility which was never taken lightly and I became a better human being because of them.
The bottom line is, and was, LOVE. It is what directs all of our best endeavors. It's what keeps us going in the right direction and turns all our mistakes into knowledge.

So, to those of you who NURTURE children, gardens, animals, a home... who foster children or take care of old parents or relatives... The ones who care for the poor and disadvantaged in this world... To those who teach and mentor.....
Thank you for all your efforts.
You should be proud.


  1. Thanks, and the same to you!

  2. What a lovely post. Nurture is a word that needs to come back into popularity, it does not meaning running around with a jam packed schedule trying to do every activity under the sun.
    It does mean training, loving, caring fo,r helping to grow, and tending with a watchful eye and sensitive spirit.
    Leastwise that's my two cents.

    Happy Mother's Day to you.
