blue skies and
willows turning gold
My mom didn’t drive, but she enjoyed taking the bus to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee to teach her English classes. I have many memories of driving us different places, over the years. She especially loved the willows in Spring. One of her favorite lines of poetry was Robert Frost’s, “Nature’s first green is gold…”
She often quoted poetry and lines from favorite novels.
And the willows are turning gold once again in Wisconsin.
Unconditional love, God’s love, outlasts death and grief: no contest.
Mom loved Lake Michigan too. Milwaukee, Chicago, here in Oostburg, this Great Lake is a part of our lives.
