It’s different this year, along with many others there is the empty space inside us that mothers once filled as we gave a reflection of our love to them through gifts and meals and especially our time .
Time that so very soon becomes only reflection in our hearts .
Moments we had with our mother now hidden inside of us . Yet they do become distorted with time . That’s the humanness of it all .
The Uniqueness of that relationship came to me today .
That no one can be a substitute for that space they left . No one .
We need to embrace the wind of change … Go with it .
Feel the ache . Cry the tears , mourn the loss , value the empty space .
Be real .
As we step into the sunshine and cloud of a new day we choose to know we are still loved and valued . We are enough . The eternal perspective leads us to the rock that is higher . Greater , stronger , deeper .
I quote CS LEWIS ….. As we choose the path of the anointed one ..
He isn’t safe but HE IS GOOD .
Let Mother’s Day be one we choose to know that He is our Good mother and Father …
And love embraces us in the paradox of the cross and resurrection .
He isn’t safe but He is good
