Mother’s Day

I found myself walking up to greeting card displays for Mother’s Day several times lately. The first time or two, it just really struck me that I won’t be sending a card this year. It is the first Mother’s Day with momma in another dimension. The last time or two I walked up to the card displays, I allowed myself to read them, peruse, remember, think about what I would say to her, shop for a card so to speak, without purchasing. While doing so, it was as though my mind opened and I realized how limited my world was believing that “mother’s day” was only for one mother. Not true – Mother’s Day is for all people. Humans who “mother” others, naturally and in uncommonly motivated ways. Mothering that requires stamina, resilience, purpose, intention, and grace beyond anything we can understand from this dimension. My heart opened when my mind did. I was able to see the ways I mother; the ways I am mothered by many – both genders; the ways the youth in my life mother to me, hugging, nurturing, sharing and providing; the ways life itself mothers me; and the ways the divine presence infinitely mothers me. I am unspeakably grateful for my momma, all she provided, taught, demonstrated, shared, created, and made possible for my soul’s progression. I am even more grateful that my relationship with her is actually eternal and infinite, not just in theory. Unexpected Grace.

I purchased some Mother’s Day cards for women in my life who I wanted to thank and acknowledge as mothers and went about my business. I hear from people routinely how much hearing about momma’s life journey, her illness and death, and the ways we integrated living and dying benefits them in profound ways. I am grateful for this of course and I am hopeful that all we learn is applied for a strong foundation for each of our continuing life’s journey. Oh, and by the way – send some flowers to someone you love WHILE they are alive.

I hold momma and you in my heart in greater and greater ways. Appreciating what I’ve been blessed with and looking forward to what comes. I’m excited about the upcoming events I get to facilitate and invite you to prioritize yourSELF in finding a retreat or renewal time somewhere and someplace. I would love it to be with me.
