May 11, 2011

Well.    I didn’t expect that.

Mother’s  Day . . . .

. . . . . “knocked me for a loop,”  as they used to say.      Lost my composure.    Haven’t found it yet.

I don’t know if there is some sort of 6-month anniversary mark after the loss of a loved one or if Mother’s Day just brings out feelings of Family, family living, family loving, who’s here, who’s not here……

Personally, it was a very nice Mother’s Day, with all the right “ingredients,”  including a very patient son.   It was Mother’s Day for every family in our country.  

And it was a day to recognize our Mother for everyone in the world:

We have the whole month of May to ponder our Mother.    “Woman,  behold thy son,”  Jesus said.   And then turning to John, He said, ‘Behold, thy Mother.”

John was not named right then because all of us were  meant.     Her universal motherhood received the sanction and confirmation of her Son, Whom she was about to lose.    She’d understand those who lose loved ones.

Will be traveling for a while.    Going to learn more about God’s good earth.   And. . . . going to see how my own mother is doing.
