Mother's Day Thoughts

May 13 2018 Published by under Uncategorized

You cannot get to be this age without having had great love and also great loss.

To my mothers, and their mothers, and their mother's mothers, stretching back through time: Thank you for the joy. Thank you for your gifts. I love you. No matter what.

To my children, all my children, here and gone. Thank you for the joy. Thank you for your gifts. I will always love you, come what may.

Sometimes, I used to have a ritual, like Havdallah, to end Mother's day. To celebrate the separation, and the start of the week and month and year. Not today. I will just be glad when this beastly day is done and gone.
