The Burning Light that is a Mother

Mother’s Day Sunday.  Most mom’s social media feeds will be filled with pictures of flower bouquets, designer purses, jewelry, hand drawn cards and other gifts they have received  this special day.  They will post how loved and special they feel, and how they wish this day will never end.  And why should it end?  Should mothers only be celebrated one day a year ? After all , they don’t just take care of their family one day out of the year, or cook one meal, do one load of laundry, hug their child when they are hurt and kiss their tears away ONE DAY A YEAR.  Mothers don’t stop being mothers after Mother’s Day is over.  It’s a lifelong  position.  One that can’t be quit when the “job” is  too hard, or the “pay” is  severely cut back and the benefits at times seem dire.  It is a long and educational journey, being a mother.  One that’s absent of regret, and full of unconditional love. Mothers are that fire that never stops burning when you’re cold, that flicker that always lights your path no matter how dark it gets, and that angel on your shoulder that guides you to the right fork in the road.  Sure we don’t always listen to that angel, or keep that flicker high enough to light the long journey ahead, but in the back of our mind it’s a comfort to know we can reach for it when we are in need. Celebrate your mother each and every day because one day that fire will cease to burn, and that flicker of light will no longer be, and that torch will be passed on to you so you can forge a path of enlightenment for your own children. Happy Mother’s Day, and Every Day !!!
