“Your mother is…

“Your mother is always with you…
She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street,
She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not well.
Your mother lives inside your laughter,
And she’s crystallized in every tear drop.
She’s the place you came from, your first home,
And she’s the map you follow with every step you take.
She’s your first love and your first heartache,
And nothing on earth can separate you,
No amount of time…and no amount of distance.”

      • I wish I could say I’m a rebel.. I posted the pic but for some reason I can’t turn it right side up…

      • Well…maybe you should leave the photo upside down then…to show the rebel side which I’m sure must live within your soul. 🙂 Anyway, if you delete the photo and then upload it again, that might work…but only if you want to be a “non-rebel.”

  1. I wish my heart could open fully to this, but alas I felt a constriction as I read “your mother is with you”…
    On Mothers Day the images of perfect mothers and happy children can be distressful to those sons and daughters who have struggled in their relationships.
    My heart goes out to them … as I feel that small contraction within myself that remains. The hurt has been transformed in me and is replaced with loving forgiveness…. but the remnants are still in my life energy
    I have such a longing to have a mother like this. Yet I am so lucky to have found this love and support elsewhere in my life.
    Thank you for inspiring me to reach out to others who find this time difficult – not only the children but the mothers who are estranged or unwelcome.
    with love
    Val

    • Val, I am so sorry for your longing for something that cannot be. I have a close friend who has felt this about her mother. To counteract that pain, she poured her love into her children. Sadly the same type of dis-engagement has happened with one of her daughters. I spoke with her yesterday and Mother’s Day to her is tinged with sadness. Thanks for being open and honest and making me think so that I may give my support to her and others burdened by lost relationships.

    • Oh, I’m so sorry that my posting this brought such sad feelings. Yes…I know that the relationships between mothers and their children are not always good. Your words I’m sure will provide comfort to others who are also struggling. Embrace the love of those who provide you with support…even here in the blogging world. We are all here for each other…trying to make the world a more peaceful and loving place. Love to you my friend. 🙂

  2. My mom will be dead 20 years this July. I couldn’t ask her to last — she felt like she had already lived 3 lifetimes, with all her suffering and struggle, but it surely seemed too early. Everyone who has a living mother, forgive her based on your own errors or worse,and enjoy this time with her as best you can. Or if you’re one of the luckier ones with no serious damages, give her some alone time with you now and then. She’ll love it. You’re always her little child. God bless, and Happy Mothers Day!
