In loving memory of my Mom Anne who left this world in November 2017. I wrote this Mother's Day article for a local magazine last May which my Mom read...I am so grateful that she did!
A Mother is a constant reminder of what is really important - the love that is in our hearts - because she plays a role in our lives that no other person can. She is the epitome of unselfish and deep devotion to ensure that her children grow up with the important values on what it is to be human. A Mother will sacrifice her own dreams and desires, endure pain and sorrow, all for the greater good of her family. Her family members know that there is nothing that can ever take away that love; it is always there, no matter what. And we come to understand that our Mother is the one who teaches by example that life on Earth is for the purpose of having the opportunity to share the love within our hearts towards each other. Mothers live the quality of love in a way that is unlike any other love on the face of the Earth.
It is through our Mothers example that we learn to practice compassion, to seek to live in a way where we treat others as we ourselves would like to be treated. We learn to understand those around us and to believe in the basic goodness in all people. As we are growing up, we are sometimes taken to task when necessary, in order to understand that everyone has a right to be treated with respect and consideration and that, sad to say, sometimes includes our Mother. As we mature, we begin to perceive that she is the one person on this planet who has a place in our lives and in our hearts that no one else can take. Through her patience, trust and endless giving, we perceive that she is a treasure that is to be cherished for her inner beauty and preciousness.
Our Mothers are often there for us at the right time and in the right place. They help us to spread our wings and fly, knowing that she will always be there to catch us. A Mothers love is the experience of God's unlimited and limitless acceptance of us as beloved children. It is an acceptance that is so full, so total, and all embracing that it sets us free to act creatively in a new space where we can pay selfless attention to others in loving service. Her influence pervades every aspect of our lives in unceasing recognition that the Divine is wherever we are, inviting us to come closer and to celebrate the Divine gift of being alive.
Our Mother inspires us to see God in our heart, in our thoughts and emotions, in our hearing, seeing, touching, and tasting, and inside every membrane of our body. It is by being awake to God in us that we can increasingly see God in the world around us. There is no language in this world that can express the power, beauty, unselfish heroism and majesty of a Mother’s love, for she is an agent of the Divine. She is charged with the task of providing the exemplary example of the Divine in action. You know where to turn for warmth, comfort and reassurance when you need it. Our Mother is love, kindness, sweetness, and beauty wrapped into one precious package of Divinity. A Mothers love is a legacy of immortal love that teaches us and continues to be our greatest inspiration in life and beyond.
