even then...


A world of grief and pain:
Flowers bloom;
Even then...

— Kobayashi Issa


My mother-in-law has been ill and in and out of the hospital for the past few weeks. 
It's been a weary time for both her and us, and it's not over yet. 
Sometimes it feels like the flowers will never bloom again, yet here's the proof...

So sorry to hear that. What we have in this world is so transient. And there are days when things get so hard. But yes, the flowers will bloom again.

Hello dear Leslie,
It has been far too long since I last stopped by. May you and your beloveds all be strengthened and feel held at this, yet another difficult time in your life. Remembering and seeing those blossoms is so very healing.

so many blooms just trembling with
hope and yes and promises kept
stirring toward the light
inside of you;
you'll see something beautiful
come of it all
yet:)
big joy to you; oh happy May,
Jennifer

Blessings on you both and stamina too. I pray she heals and you and your family remain strong.

That's a certainty we can count on--the flowers will bloom again in our lives.
