Happy Mother’s Day!

Jesus said mother I couldn’t stay another day longer

He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face

While the Angels are singing his praises in a blaze of glory

Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Nancy Griffin – “Mary”

My own mother has been gone for six years now and there’s hardly a day that I don’t miss her or wish for her wise counsel. Mothers are the original influencers, our first supporters, our original protectors, our guiding lights, the ones standing guard between us and the rest of the world, giving us a little push when we need it and saying, “you got this.”

Being a mom means showing up, no matter if you’re busy, or tired, or facing a crisis of your own; of being overworked and underpaid; of working behind the scenes or out in front on behalf of your kids; of taking crap from those same offspring when you don’t deserve it; of experiencing a joy you never realized you were capable of when you see the world through their eyes; of leaving it all on the field of parenthood when what you really wanted was to hold a little bit back for yourself for later. Being a mom is not a job for sissies. It means staying behind and cleaning up the place.

So give your mother a big fat hug and kiss if she’s still around and if she’s not send her a message of love across the ethers. She’ll get it. We are all from the same power grid, just little sources of energy running around in human suits, and when the suit goes away, the energy remains, neither created nor destroyed.

I’ll leave you with this touching song by Patty Griffin, knowing that our universe is one of duality and for every dark, sad bit there’s always going to be a light, happy one to balance it out, so to the extent you can manage, remain in light.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you fabulous mothers out there. May your day be filled with an abundance of peace and positivity.

Thanks for reading.
