Happy Mothers Day!
We Love and Appreciate you all!!!
This morning I awoke to many thoughts and decided to share. We often (mostly) live in only our realities and through our own perspectives…what I wanted to share today was the alternate reality of Mothers Day. Possibly some of you have felt, experienced or are currently processing through.
First thing many of us thought this morning is, “Happy Mothers Day”! You are thinking about the gift you sent, if the card made it in time, what are the days plans, what did you miss, will they call you before you get a chance to call them, how you didn’t have money to send what you wanted, how have you shown or will be shown love and appreciation today! Whew, thats a whole lot to be worrying about but we are now conditioned to behave a certain way on this day.
I am a Mother, I am also a daughter to a Mother who has lost a Mother. I am a sister to a daughter who has lost a Mother. I am a friend to a son who doesn’t have his Mother. I am a cousin to a child who has lost a mother. I connect to Mothers Day in so many different ways; which is why I decided to share this perspective with you. I hope it allows you to lead today in gratitude, appreciation, and compassion.
Some people awoke today numb just like they were last Mothers Day (and you didn’t notice), because their mothers are no longer here in the physical. They prepare mentally and emotionally for today. They feel grief but instead smile through it as not to make anyone else feel uncomfortable. A son awoke today only to share in spirit the growth of his children and the accomplishments he is making. A daughter woke up wishing her mother was here, if only to Experience one more moment, one more day! A granddaughter awaken today with memories of her granny and thoughts of how her mother, aunts, and uncles must be feeling. A mother woke up today not in celebration because they are grieving the loss of a child, the power of God is the only thing bringing them any sort of comfort these days, and in deep grief a mother doesn’t mourn the same. Mother’s Day is different for us all.
In appreciation of all Mothers I share this with you! Sending love, light, faith, and peace unto you!
Changing the narrative by offering another perspective to push you to lead with an open heart and compassion instead.
Happy Mother’s Day!
