He Gave Me Pearls: A Journey to the Relationship for which Your Heart Was Designed
We have permission from poet Wendell Berry and hope to clear it with the publisher soon. Asheville White Dove Releases offers an uplifting experience for celebrations and life transitions that would make a beautiful Pearl. Rock Doves fly together and when one bird goes astray, the whole flock circles back to take it in before they make their journey home.
What a beautiful example of caring and community! Horses are a mirror for human beings and can help with many issues and emotional blocks related to fear, self-confidence, power, trust, boundaries and more. And they are so beautiful, too…. Here is the story of just one special cat, Theo: The Cat of My Dreams. Linda has been in love with whales since a profound experience in off the Oregon coast. The goal is to help cetaceans burst into the hearts of viewers, so we humans remember how profoundly wonderful they are, care more actively about their plight and learn how to protect endangered ocean life from human-caused threats.
The Dog Pearls series celebrates the wisdom and love of dogs. All will encourage adoptions and a deeper connection with companion animals and with each other as human beings. We created four new Dog Pearls in the fall of , two in and two earlier ones. We could make several more with the great footage we already have.
Help us make them stars! Dog g nate Now! Fascinating concepts about the unfolding of the Universe and the place of humanity in that unfolding, from the work of cosmologist Brian Swimme we have his blanket permission. She has a new video that also addresses this idea, though we would still like to do a Pearl-length short one.
There are incredible gifts in difficult, painful times, when we face them with courage and love. In this image, he is on the right, sitting with Joe Eblen and Linda, who was able to interview him later with an 8 mm sound camera. Permission is still needed for this Pearl. The Wonder of Little Boys In , we filmed three very young boys living in that space of wonder between babyhood and boyhood. A Pearl on Adoption completed April and possibly more Zi was almost a year old when his parents Jana and Seth adopted him from a Chinese orphanage.
Our Connection with Animals & Nature, and What They Teach Us:
The Peace of Wild Things This poem reminds us that when the concerns of the world press too hard on us, we can find peace and freedom in nature. The Wonder of Whales Linda has been in love with whales since a profound experience in off the Oregon coast. Honeybees are in trouble. I suspect the main reason I cried so much was because I sorely miss my daughter right now.
And then I miss my mother too. The movie is an emotional journey hidden in comedy but it hits the spot. I even realized that I sometimes try and live vicariously through my friends, trying to imagine my mom and I, what could have been… I can never survive even 10 seconds of it because I start being awkwardly emotional so I try not to think about it.
Welcome — pearls to live by
We must learn that loving ourselves can also be a way of loving our children. Respect it and learn from both the good and the unpleasant around you. Or maybe God gives us so many little stories that we have lots of little happy endings. As the credits were about to come up, I was hoping for bloopers. The cast, including Jada Pinkett-Smith and Mila Kunis were sitting with their moms talking about motherhood. I understand the pain you were feeling at that moment, losing your loved ones is the MOST painful thing ever and you could trade anything for that short moment with them.
Lost my parents when I was 5 and 6 years old. Awesome insight Pearl… Such an awesome post that actually made my day.
The Pearl of Great Price/History
Not a mother but this made me wanna be one LOL. But my mom read it and felt the same so I get it. This is absolutely beautiful, I also thought of the lion king towards the end which made me laugh even harder when I saw your last words. As I read this I felt teary eyed. I relate to this because I have lived away from my mother since I was 17 and now I am turning I live in Boston and she lives in Botswana. I am now a senior in university trying to look for a job. I struggle between staying in the USA for better opportunities or going home finally to be with my loved ones.
I am missing many milestones in my mothers life and my siblings too. It makes me miserable most days. But my mother is a strong single mother like yourself and has made sacrifices for me to be able to be where I am today. So I need to do right by her and mostly, myself. I need to be in a place where I can grow the most and be the best I can be. I just wanted to share a bit of my story and tell you that this is a remarkable piece.
You are quite the powerhouse Pearl Thusi. You are my fave!!! And you make so many valid points about how motherhood is a journey. Sending you love and light. All so true and familiar, I am a single mom to a beautiful soul and everyday brings about new Joy and understanding. When all this transpired I felt betrayed by both the living and God for i had always prayed that my kids grow up in a different household setting to that which I was exposed to.
I was so angry at myself for being so naive,I was frustrated by the whole situation and belittled myself as I felt I was worthless.
Yes I felt like this even after giving birth, but let me tell you a secret. When feeling hurt and alone one must always give themselves time to heal, we all health differently and at different times so never rush it. Society really gives men an upper hand when it comes to pressing and serious issues. When you come into someones life and turn it up side down just because society deems it right for you to do so, what are your morals telling you? With all this comes second guessing oneself, feeling inadequate,having no sense of direction and this then affects the kids were are supposed to care for.
Life is not always black and white you know. You made us esp as mothers to reflect on ours too. A job well done to you at your age to possess such wisdom. This comes from the fact that I gave thee most amazing mom in the world. She really set the standard high. OMG i am literally crying, soo profound. God bless you Mama Panther. From now henceforth am gonna start appreciate my mommy more.
Wow this is deep… if God asked you if He could take away your daughter just so you can have your mother back… Would you do it? My cousin lost her first and only daughter then. Years later she had another baby girl on the same date her first daughter died, she looks just like her.

I sometimes feel like you but I normally tell myself as well that I should not punish myself to fullfill my dreams and happiness because my child because one day she will have her own life and forget about sacrifice I made for her. I loved this article. Reading through, images of my mother kept filling my mind, and silently I would tell her I got her now. I was so heart broken that my 7 years old child would say something like that. It made me feel like a bad mom. These are thoughts I was having after she said what she said, as we were walking.
So Ms Thusi I get it. And reading your post gave me so much comfort. I thank and love you for the above words lady.

How could I possibly thank you enough, the one who makes me whole, the one to whom I owe my life, the forming of my soul. The one who tucked me in at night, the one who stopped my crying, the one who was the expert at picking up when I was lying.
The one who saw me off to school and spent sad days alone, yet magically produced a smile as soon as I came home. The one who makes such sacrifices to always put me first, who lets me test my broken wings, in spite of how it hurts. For never giving up on me when your wits had reached its end, for always being proud of me, for being my best friend.
All your hopes and all your dreams, the strength that no one sees, a transfer over many years, your best was to pass me. Thank you for the gifts you give, for everything you do, but thank you mommy most of all for making dreams come true. It reminded me of something I knew but had forgotten, my mom is her own person and has to live her best life. The important part is taking flight. Thanks Pearl,now I get why my mom does some things the way she does them and I realise that she loves me and has my best interests at heart. Your daughter is blessed to have you as a mother… Sending you Love… and please, keep writing.
