Monday morning cup of thoughts
Mother's Day thoughts
I read several poignant posts yesterday about Mother’s Day. But one, in particular, stayed with me the entire day, Joyce Wycoff’s Mothers Love and Wounds. I was the child of an alcoholic mother who truly loved and often wounded me. I was fortunate to reconcile our life together before she passed. And I am blessed to have learned how to parent differently. I enjoy a closeness with my children that my mother and I could only imagine.
Joyce so beautifully summed up her post,
Perhaps all of us are here simply to learn to love, care for, and reduce the suffering of ourselves and our fellow travelers. Ram Dass says it so much more eloquently: “We’re all just walking each other home.”
I’m going to tuck these thoughts in my pocket for safekeeping.
