sunlight and the Traveling Virgin

Her official title might be Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima, but we call her the Traveling Virgin. In the past, I put her in our bedroom, up on the dresser. For this visit we have her in the living room, in front of the window, bathed in late afternoon light. She sits on a beautiful white scarf that belonged to my mamaw, with a small handkerchief of my Tata Tita Isabel's, and Titi Feli's rosary. She is a blessing to have, and cuts quite a figure in our humble little casita. She is the ultimate Mother, and for me, her presence is a constant reminder of Motherly Love, absolute, unconditional, true love.
