Potter's Hands

Yet, O LORD, you are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand.

Isaiah 64:8

Dear Mom,

We both have been blessed beyond measure with the experience of beauty and love that comes only from a relationship between a mother and a daughter; a relationship that has been molded on the potter’s wheel of your own home and heart. You have created a unique and beautiful masterpiece in which every detail and colour have been chosen and formed to create the family that you are a part of. You have taken the flaws and bumps and turned them into magnificent defining features of your piece.

Gracefully, you have shown us how this work of art would never have been quite so stunning if any of those features were missing. This Christmas, as we work diligently at discovering what we can make to show our love to our family, we first and foremost want to recognize that you have been doing this all your life – carefully creating daily beauty within your home to show us your unconditional love. And in the meantime, without knowing it, you’ve shown the world a small glimpse of what a beautiful thing the family was meant to be.

Love always and forever,

Mikki and Suzanne


  1. Wow...that note is the best gift they could give you, Marg! That's a Christmas present you won't ever forget...a wonderful tribute to your parenting.

  2. What a beautiful tribute from your daughters! You are a real Proverbs 31 woman..... "Her children rise up and call her blessed" Prov. 31:28. I assume they made those bowls as part of your family's home-made gift exchange?
