Some people prefer not to think about sad things, ever...and while I certainly see that as a valid perspective, desirable even, I have never entirely been able to manage it for myself. I have had sadness in my life, as most have. And once in awhile, when the sadness creeps in, uninvited, I am required to acknowledge it, and to allow it to linger awhile in my heart…because, after all, sadness is usually a result of loss…and feeling loss is a result of loving…and love...well, you can't beat love, can you?
And so today, I am honoring the memory of my beautiful Mom, on Mother's Day weekend...and the memory of my Dad as well, who was always there for me. It is a beautiful Spring day and I wish you both were here! Actually, I wish we were all at the beach, with a campfire in the sand, and cold beers...frolicking...but that is another story!
Honor your Moms this weekend, wherever they are! In doing so, you are honoring LOVE!
