Alain asked, Mama can’t you draw me a flower?

Alain and I started writing and talking to each other via phone since he was 10 months and could utter a word or scribble some lines and shapes.

We keep journals and although we have never seen each other’s, we know they are often updated with special stories, events or just a picture.

Alain is a very special son and as you will find out if you get to read my book, he is a ‘preacher’s son’. The Kindle edition is already out there but the evidence remains in the paper back right?

Therefore, my son has no ‘father’ and the man I tried to let become his father was not husband enough for me so we once more upped and packed back to ‘Mama and Grandma’s ‘ house.

Last week, I received the following letter from Alain:

Alain's letter of 20 feb 2014
Alain’s letter of 20 feb 2014

He asked me why I couldn’t draw him a flower.

Oh my, when was the last time I drew a flower?

Moreover, I type the letters on the computer but if I wanted to draw the flower, then I had to do it by hand – then I may as well write the whole letter by hand this time around.

Hm, so for your singular pleasure, find below my flower to my dearest Alain:

My Letter of 22nd February 2014
My Letter of 22nd February 2014
December 2012 - telling each other I love you!
December 2012 – telling each other I love you!

Yes, flowers mean so much to both the young and old alike, to the kids as much as to the parents, to the girls and maybe to the boys too.

Dear Gentle followers of mine, what says ye of my anecdotes on this special week of mine?

  1. article is quite interesting and hopefully true happiness rays began to warm the hearts of us all, when we can share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama :)

  2. This is a lovely post Marie. Love is a powerful emotion and it’s obvious the love you have for each other.

    You drew a beautiful flower and writing a letter by hand is more special than typing one. That’s what I think anyway. :-) I’m sure Alain enjoyed reading it with the flower he’s been waiting for.

    Have a great day.

    1. Dear June,

      Yes Love is a very powerful emotion and hence the saying out of sight is not out of mind.

      You know, there is another saying that in life we can’t loose it all ways – well that’s my take also.

      I am glad you find my flower beautiful, I tried to do a rose :)

      Writing by hand is special but hm with the different gadgets we have – lazziness or etc comes in. I have however gotten his message and yours now so I will continue by hand.

      Oh he so enjoyed that he’s already replied.

      Have a great day too.
