For me, reading the memories and thoughts people have shared here has evoked tearful smiles and knowing nods. They serve as a testament of Moonwater’s radiance, wisdom and vitality. And it makes it a little easier to sit still with the notion of her absence from this worldly plane. And since it is Elana’s birthday tomorrow (Happy Birthday, Sweetie), my mind came to rest on the tradition Moonwater’s family had of wishing the mother a happy birthday on the anniversary of her child’s birth. A very good tradition indeed. One that shows respect for life and relationships. And, I believe, a small window into Moonwater’s wit and thoughtful guidance.
