    "Let the beauty we love be what we do.
    There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."

    -from A Great Wagon, by Rumi

    Join us to celebrate Carol and her life by sharing the stories and moments you remember with her. Wear your Home Depot Apron with flair or come in floral with garden-style attire. Share your stories of "Captain Carol" or "Mama boss" or whatever your heart feels compelled to do. 

    If you could write and share something with us, it would be greatly appreciated. It may be a lyric, poem, verse, or quote that reminds you of Carol or it could be an original poem or short memory of how she lived her life and showed us how to be love. 

    For example, as her daughter and sometimes a polar opposite personality here is a situation that I recall as a somewhat regular pattern in my life:
    Mom would see me in my struggle to analyze a situation and try to determine the most effecient way forward, she would say "Just do it, even if it's wrong!". This really would irritate me, but I understand now, that she lived from her heart. She would make decisions for the best of others and consider their heart's desires and needs before analyzing the affect or cost to herself. It may have sometimes seemed wrong to me (or others), but she knew how to live with the certainty of love. She had a faith that didn't expect from others or judge, she just knew how trust and keep going forward.

    She was and will remain the truest example of a mother's everpresent love and generosity. She was not afraid to do the hard work, get dirty or learn the lesson the hard way. She was a beautiful person and is still a beautiful soul.
