If hindsight is 20/20, I regret not having taken the time to get to know her better when she was alive, both for myself and for what I could share about her with my children. I can only do my best to make every moment count now in the time I have, living from my heart and sharing my love, nurturing the relationships that I have now. I make a point of relating to my children, especially my daughter, as a person as much as their mother. I want them to see all of who I am, what I’m passionate about, what I hold dear and where I draw my strength from.
On this Mother’s Day, whatever your relationship with your own mother, I invite you to live and love as fully and generously as you can. Take time to honor the Divine Feminine energy, creative, nurturing, intuitive, strong, wise and compassionate in yourself and all of life. And thank the women who have mothered you, regardless of relationship. Thanks, Mom. I love you.
