2013 Project 365

Project 365/250 – Into the Heavens


The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Augustine

Your days are short here;

this is the last of your springs.

And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place,

touch the depths of truth,

feel the hem of Heaven.

You will go away with old, good friends.

And don’t forget when you leave why you came.

Adlai E. Stevenson


In loving memory of my mother

Bertha Garcia Carter

January 12, 1930 – September 13, 2013

The best gift she left her three daughters were her loving and close friends.

Thank you for sharing your special gifts with those near you.

  1. I dont even know you, but I know the loss of a mother and its one of the hardest of Life – but the best reminders of who she was/is will constantly shine through you every single day….in the way you comb your hair, tie your shoes – maybe even the way you dance, or laugh, or the twinkle in your eye. Mothers are the greatest gift – they always say that Children are….but as a child, there is no greater gift than our Mother.

    Sincerest condolences to you and your family during this time of loss….

    • Hi Tiffany, Your kind note that you left on this post truly touched my heart and really helped me during a difficult time. I shared it with my sister, and she also appreciated your kindness. I am grateful for your kindness and friendship to a total stranger. Thank you for being so special. Emily

  2. She is forever in everything around you. Everything within you. Everything you are. Her love did not end, just the vessel that held it. Now her love is everywhere.

    • You’re absolutely right – she helped to create a learning center in Costa Rica that is still operational today. Her hard work will always survive in helping others. Thank you so much for such kind words. Hugs, Emily

  3. As always, a beautiful post and image… So much love to you, now. I’m sorry I’ve been out of touch — I miss the space, and you — but I send you so many prayers and much light right now.
