Haiku for Crystal
What's more fun than going to a baby shower? Making the card of course!! I've been to a zillion showers, some more interesting than others, but this was an elegant, catered party with fabulous hors d'oeuvres, quiche, mimosas (I only had one) and gourmet cupcakes. Hosted by my friend Debbie, (often referred to here as my art angel:) and she definitely knows how to throw a party. It was a three-hour long gathering of interesting, funny, charming women!
Though many of us were meeting for the first time, we are all bonded by motherhood. One of my favorite part is the sharing of our own stories - the sometimes heartache, funny labor room anecdotes, and always fond remembrances. It's amazing how, after two, or a dozen or more years every detail is imprinted in the part of our memory that will never fade.
I brought the card back home - plan to remove the wire and attach it to a small collage with the embellished heart and the haiku I wrote:
tight fist unfolding
whispering dreams, songs of love
to your waiting heart.
The baby, grandchild of my good friend Cassie (glamama) is due on the 11th!
