Your life is like a fine knit sweater
woven throughout my heart.
Thoughts of you kindle warmth of love,
keeping me cozy inside.
I look at the horizon and see glimmers of your light,
your spark, your determination and fight.
Lost at sea at times, rudder in your hands. Determined, willful, at the ready,
as you tremble through excitement and fear.
You know where you’re heading,
even on the blustery nights,
or the heat of the day.
Your head raised high
to meet the next challenge.
I’ve never doubted you for a minute.
I wear this sweater I’ve knitted for you
waiting at the water’s edge,
stitched and holding me together,
so I can send it with you on your journey,
to keep you warm from the love of your mother.
I wish you all the warmth of the season to keep you warm and your light kindled bright. Keep the faith and vision you set for yourself and know that even when you can’t see the fruits of your labor, they are germenting under the surface, when you continue to take the necessary steps in dismal times. My son has been living with us for 2 years since the pandemic and helped his Dad in the insurance business, only to find it’s NOT his cup of tea. In the meantime, he has been applying for jobs in what he loves in business and just landed an amazing job effective Jan 9th. We are sooo excited for him to launch into his new calling.
Here’s to knitted words of your heart manifesting love, comfort and joy!
