Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 8, 2016

To the world you are a Mother, but to your family you are the World... I never quite understood her as a mother until I, myself became one too.  In that I look on her with new eyes; teh daily sacrifice, the endless quest for balance, and the miracle of being called "mom" is better understood now between us.

Because of her foundation I understand what Mother's Day is about: It's about looking through our lives and recognizing the act of mothering everywhere we see it, and more than that, recognizing that when any of us mother - we listen, nurture, nourish, protect - we're doing sacred work.

Because of her foundation, I know that being a mother is never without its moments of highest highs and lowest lows.  If it were a job I think we would've quit a long time ago - terrible pay, hours, duties, and absolutely no recognition for a job well done.  But it's not a job, it's our life.

Being a mother has give me a life to be proud of, a challenge in my every day for sure... but a moment of pure love in my life that comes unconditionally and without strings, they are both the most uncomplicated and complicated relationships I will ever forge.  They represent my greatest contribution to this earth, my only lasting footprint to leave behind when I go...

My children'ts great-grandchildren might not remember my name or who I was, but they will know the love that I strive to instill im my children, that they in turn will instill in their children, and so on and so forth.  And the great secret to this lineage of motherly love?  It's because I had a beautiful, loving mother too!

Happy Mother's Day Mom!  I Love You!

The joy in motherhood comes in moments.  There will be hard times and frustrating times but amid the challenges there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!  Prayerfully all mothers had a very enjoyable, blessing filled day.  I'm ending the day with a home cooked meal and some of my favorite humans and missing the ones who couldn't be here. XO
