Mother's Day. Need I write more. As we reflect on previous Mother's Days, what stands out? As we think of our mothers, what comes to mind?
"Motherness" goes way beyond Mother's Day and constitutes a huge array of thoughts and feelings, sounds and smells. Somehow, when I think of my mother, I think of she and I both younger. (Now, we're older and somewhat gliding along.)
What is your most recent thought about your mother? (She could accept children. She still does. She could allow them to be. She still does.).
Notice briefly your mother's heart for you. Bathe in the openness and acceptance you feel. Be thankful. Her heart is there for you.
