Languages, Translations, Words

Language, languages, words, writing – I’m not a “Word”smith – not the way I see other writers are, not the way my sons in the Lord are… but I still love Words… and I love THE Word of God.

My youngest son posted this for me on FB ~ A mhathair alainn, i mo chroi go deo ~ great – ummm, wwwwhat?  And the following posts from his sis-in-law (like mine) and his Big Sister that followed, showed SHE understood what it meant… So I learned today, how to go to Google Translate (of course he had to tell me the language he had posted this message in)… like a treasure hunt I think.  :-)   Translation!

“My beautiful mother, in my heart forever.”

Awwwww.  Amazing timing today.  And OUCH!  Made me *sniffle* – cry.  Why you ask?

Because I am SO missing my family, and having empty nest emotional issues today, “missing our identity as a family, that will never be for me again” (yes, divorce issues again today) ~ and TODAY this youngest son tells me the meaning of this fun-to-him, encrypted, secret message to me that he posted on FB publicly.  And he boasts that his Sis took the time to go find the meaning, and came back and commented.

His grown & adult but very COOL Sis that make sure she gives GOOD GIFTS, gifts that you actually wanted ~ and she remembers, and diligently goes and finds them and presents them SO beautifully… that same Sis (my only daughter) that MADE sure that I got a digital camera (my old camera died and I’ve grieved it long) AND the batteries and memory card to go with (she knows my non-existent single Mom budget).

Your timing, Lord, is very humbling.

I wasn’t feel so beautiful, Prov 31-ish, or like a very good Mother today… more like looking at all of my failures in magnification!  Tears come unbidden more and more these days.  I hope that means more healing is happening, I hope.  Laughter and tears TOGETHER is a good thing, right?  I hope.  I’m weary with these tears Lord ~ I understand more and more about David’s Psalms… I think more than I ever really wanted too.  ***sheepish smile***thru tears***

Thank you Lord that you love me.  And that my kids, that are SO grown, love me – even in my tears, struggles, and weaknesses.
